MLB Injury Report

Sean Murphy – C Atlanta Braves

Here’s hoping it actually happens and we can put this saga behind us.

James Paxton – SP Boston Red Sox

Given Paxton’s extensive injury history, any and all doubt this happens is understandable. For now, consider him DTD, though a trip to the Injured List should not be surprising.

Codi Heuer – RP Chicago Cubs, Brandon Hughes – RP Chicago Cubs

Both pitchers will be out for a long time with injuries that are concerning. Heuer was returning from Tommy John surgery and was in immense pain when he threw his last pitch. He immediately grasped at his elbow while bent over looking quite hurt. As for Hughes, he has already been on the Injured List twice this season for at knee, and this third time will ultimately require an extended absence.

Ben Lively – SP Cincinnati Reds

First, Lively’s start today was scratched, and now this. An already depleted Reds’ rotation must dig deeper to fill yet another void.

Eduardo Rodriguez – SP Detroit Tigers

This is very encouraging news here. Perhaps the finger is feeling much better and has healed much sooner than expected. Rodriguez threw 50 pitches here over three simulated innings. He may start a rehab assignment soon.

Riley Greene – OF Detroit Tigers, Akil Baddoo – OF Detroit Tigers

Greene and Baddoo seem to be progressing well here, with Greene being the one that’ll seemingly be ready first.

Jose Urquidy – SP Houston Astros

With the plan being a few more bullpen sessions before live hitters, Urquidy could begin a rehab session just around the All-Star Break. He likely won’t be back until late July or early August.

Anthony Rendon – 3B Los Angeles Angels

While Rendon’s wrist continues to make progress, it’s still concerning given that he’s eligible to return tomorrow and this is all that he’s been able to do. The chances of him needing a rehab assignment increase with every day that he doesn’t come close to playing.

Max Muncy – INF Los Angeles Dodgers

Be prepared.

Noah Syndergaard – SP Los Angeles Dodgers

Syndergaard has been on the Injured List for over two weeks with a blister issue and is only now beginning to throw to batters. The idea behind going on the Injured List was to reset his mind and body and his season. He will likely need a rehab assignment due to the fact that he has been off for so long.

Byron Buxton – OF Minnesota Twins

We should find out soon if Buxton will be playing today. We may not know yet if he’ll need a trip to the Injured List.

Jeff McNeil – OF New York Mets

McNeil did not play yesterday and it’s unclear if he’ll be ready today. Stay tuned.

Aaron Judge – OF New York Yankees

Ugh, not ideal at all. This is a significant blow to the hops of Yankees fans and fantasy owners everywhere. The fact that Judge still feels pain when he walks is terrible news. One should expect him back at some point this summer, but it’s a very vague outlook. It’s an injury that doesn’t happen too often, if at all. He is a big and tall man who needs to be able to move around and use his foot. We will hopefully know more about a timeline in the upcoming days.

Andres Munoz – RP Seattle Mariners

This is good news, considering how scary the other options could have been. Consider Munoz DTD for now and he should be back soon.

Nolan Gorman – 2B St. Louis Cardinals, Jordan Hicks – RP St. Louis Cardinals

Both players are likely out for today’s game. Be sure to check your lineups before the opening pitch.

Jack Flaherty – SP St. Louis Cardinals

Consider Flaherty DTD for now until we’re told it’ll be an extensive injury.

Shane McLanahan – SP Tampa Bay Rays

All of this stems from what is believed to have been a precautionary early exit during his last start. It would seem like McLanahan will be able to make his next start unless we’re told otherwise soon.
