Chris Sale – SP Boston Red Sox

Sale was placed on the Injured List yesterday and will miss some time while his shoulder recovers. The team is hopeful that it’s just a minor issue, but it’s unclear how much time he will miss. We still don’t know the official diagnosis, but we do know that he needs time off. We should get more updates soon to get a clearer picture of what’s happening.

Josh Bell – 1B Cleveland Guardians, Cal Quantrill – SP Cleveland Guardians

Quantrill has been awful on the mound as of late, and this could have been why. As reported, he will be shut down following a PRP injection and then the team will go from there. As for Bell, he and his family are wished well at this time.

Detroit Tigers – Team Update

A lot to unpack here. First, Skubal will begin a lengthy rehab assignment this weekend while recovering from an elbow injury. He has been out of action for about a year and will need a long rehab before tenuously returning. It is unclear if Faedo will be able to make his next start, which is scheduled for Monday. As for Rodriguez, he is still slated to miss an extensive amount of time, despite the re-evaluation happening next week.

Aroldis Chapman – RP Kansas City Royals

It’s unclear as to if Chapman will need time on the Injured List or if recovery can be a day-to-day thing. Either way, he will likely miss time this weekend.

Willy Adames – SS Milwaukee Brewers

All has been pretty quiet on the Adames front, but maybe that’s a good thing. He had been slowly recovering but steadily getting better. Concussion should not be rushed, so the hope is that he is able to cycle through any and all testing and be back soon, but only when he’s ready.

Tyrone Taylor – OF Milwaukee Brewers

This is concerning, as it’s the same elbow that caused him to miss part of the season already. He received a PRP injection back in March and clearly hasn’t been the same at the plate since his return. Stay tuned.

Wade Miley – SP Milwaukee Brewers

If these timelines are correct, then it’s a simply remarkable return for Miley, who will cut the projected time in half. One has to question if it’ll be too soon, but everyone involved seems to believe he is fine.

Byron Buxton – UT Minnesota Twins, Carlos Correa – SS Minnesota Twins

Buxton was HBP in the ribs, but the x-rays revealed nothing more than a big bruise. He apparently slept while sitting Thursday night and had his ribs wrapped up tightly. As for Correa, he continues to defy the odds with his DTD status, but time will tell if it’s a long-term issue.

Joey Gallo – OF Minnesota Twins

Gallo’s hamstring has been an on-and-off issue for a while, so perhaps some time off is what’s best. While Gleeman speculated a Wallner call-up, he did also speculate Garlick because of the number of LHP the Twins will be facing soon.

Carlos Rodon – SP New York Yankees

The velocity is encouraging, though he did average well over 95mph last year, so he has some work to do. If he can face live hitters soon, he has a chance to return before the All-Star Break, assuming no setbacks.

Darick Hall – 1B Philadelphia Phillies, Cristian Pache – OF Philadelphia Phillies

Hall had done well in his limited time in Single-A, and now he’s onto the tougher competition. He is eligible to return on June 5, but there’s been no indication that he will be back on time. As for Pache, his extensive time away likely means that he will need an extensive IL stint as well.

Nelson Cruz – UT San Diego Padres

Cruz was trying to beat out an infield hit and subsequently hurt himself. There’s been no indication of the severity, but he will need at least ten days. He’s been playing sporadically as of late as well.

Joey Bart – C San Francisco Giants

Bart went 1-for-4 in his first game back, but the real story is what the team does in the near future with Patrik Bailey breaking out.

Joc Pederson – OF San Francisco Giants, Ross Stripling – RP/SP San Francisco Giants

It probably won’t be a long rehab as the injury was never considered to be too serious. He should be back before next weekend, and even that is a conservative guess. As for Stripling, he was eligible to return yesterday, but he has a lot of work to do before that. A rehab assignment is likely in the future for him, but that may not be for another week.

Dylan Carlson – OF St. Louis Cardinals

Carlson’s ankle is feeling better, but because he’s been gone for a while, he will likely need a lengthy rehab outing. That said, it wouldn’t be surprising if he is back within a week.

Tyler O’Neill – OF St. Louis Cardinals

This will be another ten days of doing absolutely nothing before the team re-evaluates the situation here. There has been nothing new since they last evaluated that they did;’t know what was keeping him on the shelf. This is seemingly baffling from a medical perspective but could be straightforward from a relationship perspective. Time will tell if a change of scenery will heal all wounds.

Josh Fleming – SP Tampa Bay Rays

Fleming got obliterated against the Dodgers earlier this week and this might be the reason why. Time will tell how serious the injury is, but it’s just another arm for the Rays that will miss time.

Victor Robles – OF Washington Nationals

Robles last played on May 6, so this is a welcome sight. He will need a lengthy rehab when he’s ready to do so.
