MLB Injury Report

Austin Hays – OF Baltimore Orioles

Hays did not come off the bench but looks as if he could play before the All-Star Break.

Tanner Houck – SP Boston Red Sox

It’s good news that he may be close to starting to exercise. It’s natural to lose weight when you’re only drinking your nutrition, so he will need to put back some muscle and get himself back to the way he was. All that being said, it’ll be a long road ahead for him.

Adalberto Mondesi – SS Boston Red Sox

He should not be in any fantasy conversation for 2023 until he takes the next step forward.

Trevor Story – 2B/SS Boston Red Sox

Fantastic news to watch for in the near future. Stay tuned.

Dansby Swanson – SS Chicago Cubs

It looks like Swanson will miss today’s game after leaving last night’s game in the seventh inning. The hope is that he will return before the All-Star Break. Stay tuned as after today’s evaluation, we should have more details.

Nick Madrigal – 2B/3B Chicago Cubs

It was hoped that Madrigal would be back within the ten-day minimum, but having a moderate strain likely means it will be an extended absence. He won’t be able to do much of anything baseball-related until he is healed.

Spencer Turnbull – SP Detroit Tigers

As stated, the neck feels great and it’s all about building up arm strength and timing. Essentially, it’s a Spring Training timeline for Turnbull.

José Altuve – 2B Houston Astros

It’s an interesting approach here, as the All-Star Break is right around the corner. If Altuve were to go on the Injured List now, he’d be eligible to come back just after baseball resumes next weekend. Time will tell, but it’s trending in the direction of him heading to the Injured List.

Anthon Rendon – 3B Los Angeles Angels

The Angels have the day off on Thursday. They are hoping that Rendon will be ready to go on Friday after not playing today. If he does go on the Injured List, it sounds like he’ll only miss a game or two.

Mike Trout – OF Los Angeles Angels

The timetable for his return is estimated as a four-to-eight-week timeline. It’s too early to tell right now if Trout is on the short end or the long end of this timetable.

Brandon Woodruff – SP Milwaukee Brewers

Woodruff had a setback last week with concern that he wasn’t healing as well as he should have. Here’s hoping that this bullpen session can quell any of those concerns as he moves toward a return.

Rowdy Tellez – 1B Milwaukee Brewers

Tellez’s shoulder had been bothering him for a while. It could be the reason why his batting average is at .213 and why he didn’t hit a home run in June.

Esteury Ruiz – OF Oakland Athletics

This doesn’t sound good at all, as nobody ever likes to hear or think they’ve heard a pop. Fingers crossed that he can be back just after the All-Star Break.

Yu Darvish – SP San Diego Padres

Be prepared.

Ty France – 1B Seattle Mariners, Bryce Miller – SP Seattle Mariners

France remains out of action while nursing his undisclosed injury. Meanwhile, the latest on Miller “not pitching for a while” is concerning, to say the least. It leads to some speculation that there could be an underlying issue here that’s not being revealed. Nobody except Noah Syndergaard has blisters that linger on for weeks and weeks.

Tommy Edman – INF/OF St. Louis Cardinals

The belief and hope is that the injury isn’t severe enough to last longer than a day or two.
