Aaron Hicks – OF Baltimore Orioles

Well, that lasted didn’t last too long. To be fair, Hicks did make it on base three times and the injury isn’t considered serious. Still, it’s a discouraging way to start a career in a new place.

Austin Hays – OF Baltimore Orioles

Consider Hays DTD for nothing more than an illness.

Adalbero Mondesi – SS Boston Red Sox

The last sentence says it all, as this could be the reason for an extended absence. Mondesi has taken a while to recover from injuries in the past, and this year is no different. Cora went so far as to insinuate that perhaps Mondesi didn’t feel comfortable doing things physically and trying to expand on what he can do. He also stated that when the team was looking to acquire him, everything was checked out structurally. From this standpoint, there seems to be some frustration from the Red Sox, but that could also be reading between the lines too much. This is a situation to watch and monitor. He was supposed to help replace Trevor Story, but there’s a chance that Mondesi returns after Story does.

Adam Duvall – OF Boston Red Sox

Duvall targeted June 9 as the day from which to return, so keep that in mind.

Justin Steele – SP Chicago Cubs

This doesn’t have a good feeling attached to it, but we’ll know more after Steele’s MRI today. Fingers crossed.

Triston McKenzie – SP Cleveland Guardians

The team will sit down with McKenzie and discuss his future over the next day or so. The likelihood of him returning seems to be high and that’ll probably be the topic of conversation. Look for McKenzie to make his season debut within a week.

Riley Greene – OF Detroit Tigers

The second opinion is always a scary thing to read because it usually means that the first opinion was ominous. There will be more details after that diagnosis gets revealed, but until then, it’s safe to think that Greene will miss more than the ten-day minimum.

Brandon Drury – INF Los Angeles Angels

Only time will tell if Wednesday’s day off was precautionary or for something more. Drury may need another day, but it’s looking like he’s avoided anything major.

Anthon Rendon – 3B Los Angeles Angels

Be prepared.

Jazz Chisholm Jr. – 2B/OF Miami Marlins, A.J. Puk – RP Miami Marlins

All is quiet on the Chisholm Jr. front, though we should know more shortly. As for Puk, back-to-back games should be the final hurdle before he returns.

Jorge Polanco – 2B Minnesota Twins

Be prepared.

Giancarlo Stanton – OF New York Yankees

Be prepared.

Josh Donaldson – 3B New York Yankees

That’s the plan, but we shall see if it comes to fruition. Time will tell, but it’s looking like a Donaldson return is happening soon. Be prepared.

Carlos Rodon – SP New York Yankees

While the number of bullpens is encouraging, it’s been unclear if it’s just fastballs being thrown. Rodon will also need to ramp up his workload too. Finally, until he faces live batters, a return should not be considered close/

Alec Bohm – INF Philadelphia Phillies, Jose Alvarado – RP Philadelphia Phillies

The fact that he had to miss two games with this hamstring injury is somewhat concerning. It could require ten days off to ensure that it doesn’t flare up like it did after one day of rest. As for Alvarado, the live BP is great to see, and a rehab assignment seems likely more than not.

Oneil Cruz – SS Pittsburgh Pirates, Vince Velasquez – SP Pittsburgh Pirates

That’s great news for Cruz, as he will then be able to work on strength, conditioning and begin mobility training. As for Velasquez, it’s disheartening and concerning that missing the season is an option. The team has been slow to make anything official with him, which could lead one to believe that it’s major.

Michael Conforto – OF San Francisco Giants

Great news about a clean MRI, and now it’s all about letting it heal on its own. Consider him DTD.

Andres Munoz – RP Seattle Mariners

All of this is very encouraging. What’s next is to see how his body responds and if he can do it again and again.

Wander Franco – SS Tampa Bay Rays

Franco did not play yesterday, but the injury doesn’t sound too serious. Look for him to be back soon enough, though keep an eye on this, just in case.
