Lourdes Gurriel – OF Arizona Diamondbacks

Gurriel hasn’t played all week, but it looks like he’s still to be considered DTD and could return soon.

Ryan Mountcastle – 1B Baltimore Orioles

The hope is that this isn’t serious and that Mountcastle can return at some point this weekend.

Chris Sale – SP Boston Red Sox

The injury to Sale was significant enough to transfer him to the 60-day IL, which means that he won’t be able to return until at least August 2. It’s good news, at the very least, that he won’t require surgery, but we’ll know more when he’s re-evaluated in about a month. All that being said, this leaves a hole in the Red Sox rotation, which could be filled by Kutter Crawford, Nick Pivetta, or Corey Kluber at various points in the season.

Eloy Jimenez – OF Chicago White Sox

This will essentially keep Jimenez out of the lineup until next week. Even worse, knowing his injury history, this could land him on the Injured List when that estimated timeframe is complete. Stay tuned, because there’s a chance the story has another level to it.

Graham Ashcraft – SP Cincinnati Reds

Ashcraft will miss at least two weeks after taking a comebacker on Thursday. He will likely need that time to recoup physically and mentally after struggling for the last little bit.

Akil Baddoo – OF Detroit Tigers

Baddoo hurt himself while running the bases on Friday. There weren’t any updates, but an IL-stint has yet to be ruled out. Stay tuned.

Yordan Alvarez – OF Houston Astros

The hope here is that Alvarez will only miss the minimum amount of time. That said, most oblique injuries do require additional time spent recovering. More will be known once he’s re-evaluated, but for now, he will miss just over a week.

Vinnie Pasquantino – 1B Kansas City Royals

More will be known later today, but this isn’t promising. It wouldn’t be surprising to see him land on the Injured List. One has to wonder if Nick Pratto gets some time at first base in his absence.

Edward Olivares – OF Kansas City Royals

Olivares is dealing with a non-baseball situation and will hopefully be back soon.

Gio Urshela – INF Los Angeles Angels

This is something to watch as the Angels’ utility player could miss time this weekend.

Ben Joyce – RP Los Angeles Angels

Joyce also said that he feels tingling in his hand and his forearm as well. With him expected to go on the Injured List, it’s unclear whether or not it will be s short or extended trip. This doesn’t seem ideal.

Julio Urias – SP Los Angeles Dodgers

While this doesn’t sound good, it’s also noted that Urias has not been shut down from throwing, so it’s not a full setback. That said, he will be limited to flat-ground throwing and may have to do a reset in his recovery. Ardaya also suggested that a rehab assignment is likely in play now.

Jorge Polanco – 2B Minnesota Twins

The injury that won’t go away will be tested and examined. It would seem likely that Polanco will end up on the Injured List at some point again this season, possibly now.

Pete Alonso – 1B New York Mets

The hope is that the timeline is minimal and that Alonso can return just after the All-Star Break.

Harrison Bader – OF New York Yankees

Bader doesn’t appear ready to begin a rehab assignment, and his subsequent return looks to be delayed.

Carlos Rodon – SP New York Yankees

Rodon will test things out this Sunday and work on his secondaries. He will need to ramp things up too before heading out for an extended rehab assignment. All that said, things are looking good with another big day lined up on Sunday.

Aaron Judge – OF New York Yankees

This is a very minor update, but nonetheless, it is news. We’ll hopefully know more about Judge’s timeline within the week.

Alec Bohm – INF Philadelphia Phillies

For now, his tenuous return should be any day now, but it’s looking like there’s a chance it could be after this weekend.

Vince Velasquez – SP/RP Pittsburgh Pirates

There wasn’t much else regarding this surgery, but some reports have him missing twelve months. Stay tuned.

J.D. Davis – 3B San Francsico Giants

Consider Davis as DTD until we hear otherwise.

Joey Bart – C San Francsico Giants

The anticipation was that Bart would return to the lineup this week, but it looks as if that won’t be happening.

Lars Nootbar – OF St. Louis Cardinals

Not ideal, but nothing overly concerning just yet. There should be updates over the next few days to see what will happen next. The Cardinals are deep in the OF and likely won’t rush back Nootbar.
