Chris Sale – SP Boston Red Sox

Cora stated that Sale’s velocity started to drop in the second inning, as it was down around five miles per hour. He wound up pitching through it and lasted only 3.2 innings before being pulled. There will be an MRI later today to determine the severity, but a lengthy absence is the likeliest of outcomes here. Stay tuned.

Christian Arrooyo – 2B Boston Red Sox, Adam Duvall – OF Boston Red Sox

There’s been no word on why Arroyo would not be activated this weekend, though losing Sale might free up a spot. As for Duvall, look for him to start in the outfield, which will be a big hurdle for him to overcome before returning.

Nick Lodolo – SP Cincinnati Reds

Lodolo likely won’t throw for at least two weeks, at which time his leg will be examined to determine any healing. This update was a scheduled follow-up from two weeks ago. Once he does throw again, he will likely need a lengthy rehab outing since he hasn’t actually pitched in quite a while.

Cleveland Guardians – Team Update

A lot to unpack here. The Guardians’ bullpen will look a lot differently as of this weekend. Both Civale and McKenzie could offer some stability and experience to the team, though first games back from extended absences aren’t always safe. Naylor’s injury is something to keep an eye on. It’s unclear when the wrist soreness began, but he did jam his wrist while sliding on Wednesday. Stay tuned while it’s determined if it will require extended time away. As for Quantrill, he has struggled recently, and this could help explain it. The use of an injection could speed up the healing process.

Kris Bryant – OF Colorado Rockies

The injury is worrisome due to his issues with plantar fasciitis last year. While Bryant has remained relatively healthy, his power numbers have all but disappeared. It remains to be seen if he’s been dealing with this for a while.

Michael Brantley – OF Houston Astros

Brantley will make his way through the processes yet again after his last rehab outing failed. This is one of the middle stages to see if his shoulder can sustain the pressures of swinging and movement. He still has a long way to go before returning.

Anthony Rendon – 3B Los Angeles Angels

Rendon did not throw the ball after fielding it, so it’s possible that the injury sustained is still bothering him. He last played on May 13 and does not seem to be close enough to warrant a rehab outing.

Wade Miley – SP Milwaukee Brewers

This is great news as the timeline for this seems to be quicker than anticipated. He apparently feels great and the team is comfortable with pushing through to ensure that he’s going to pitch for them. Stay tuned.

Max Kepler – OF Minnesota Twins, Carlos Correa – SS Minnesota Twins

While Kepler’s injury doesn’t seem to be too serious, and he should be DTD for now. As for Correa, a reoccurrence of an injury almost always means that a trip to the Injured List. Plantar fasciitis is a serious injury that is hard to play through. He could be facing a lengthy time away from the team.

Byron Buxton – DH Minnesota Twins

Buxton has been battling knee injuries for a while now, and now this is an unwelcomed addition to the pain. One has to wonder if he will head to the Injured List for ten days to help him get right. Stay tuned.

Trevor Larnach – OF Minnesota Twins, Caleb Thielbar – RP Minnesota Twins

Look for both Larnach and Thielbar to be reinstated within the week, as both have been trending upward.

Jose Alvarado – RP Philadelphia Phillies

It’s looking like Alvarado will be back shortly and is worth rostering for next week’s slate of games.

Alec Bohm – INF Philadelphia Phillies

The injury is considered mild, so we could be looking at a minimum stay on the Injured List.

Danny Jansen – C Toronto Blue Jays

All of this sounds like a busy and productive week for Jansen. He is eligible to return on Monday, and that seems possible.
