MLB Injury Report

Drey Jameson – SP/RP Arizona Diamondbacks

This likely means that the first opinion was a long and ominous one, but that’s pure speculation. Either way, this will be a long-term injury with some rest-of-season ramifications.

Max Fried – SP Atlanta Braves

All of this is fantastic news, as the velocity looks similar to what he produced prior to his trip to the Injured List. He will likely need at least two more starts before returning.

Andrew Benintendi – OF Chicago White Sox

The hope is that Benintendi returns in less than a week, but time will tell if that’s possible.

Kyle Freeland – SP Colorado Rockies

This was his non-throwing shoulder that was popped back into place. The examination here was to see if there was any structural damage or broken bones, and everything came back negative. There is no timetable for his return.

Houston Astros – Team Update

All of this is great news for the Astros, given their situation. Urquidy and Alvarez worked with each other and both will be ready to start a rehab assignment in about a week. Urquidy’s will likely be the longer one of the two, but both players will need to show that they’re healthy enough to return. As for Altuve, while his time away after the Break will be substantial, the fact that he is healing faster than anticipated is a positive sign for his return.

Edward Olivares – OF Kansas City Royals

Olivares’ injury is mild in nature, so he may be able to return around the time he is first eligible to do so on July 18. That being said, oblique injuries are tricky, so he may also miss the rest of July. Stay tuned.

Brandon Woodruff – SP Milwaukee Brewers

This bullpen came after a delay earlier in the week when Woodruff wasn’t healing as well as the team would have liked. Now, his velocity is lower than what it normally would have been were he healthy. He will likely need more sessions such as this, as well as a velocity uptick, before heading out to a rehab assignment.

Jorge Polanco – 2B Minnesota Twins

That’s fantastic news, as Polanco is nearing a return. He will likely need a lengthy rehab assignment to ensure that his knee problems are finally behind him.

Tommy Pham – OF New York Mets

We should have more updates after the results of the imaging are released.

Nestor Cortes – SP New York Yankees

Cortes is seemingly trending upward with every update. The fact that he was pain-free is a good thing. Keep in mind, his latest transfer to the 60-day Injured List means that he cannot return until August 3.

Bryce Harper – DH Philadelphia Phillies

This is comforting, but a lot can happen this week before the Phillies’ next game.

Jose Alvarado – RP Philadelphia Phillies

This is the second time that Alvarado has been on the Injured List this season due to an elbow injury. While he is eligible to return on July 23, chances are that the team takes things extra slowly with him.
