MLB Injury Report

Gunnar Henderson – INF Baltimore Orioles


The most interesting part of this news is that his back problems have been lingering. This is the first we’ve heard of it and it’s something to monitor. There could be an Injury List designation in the cards, but for now, consider him DTD.

Justin Steele – SP Chicago Cubs

The injury has been diagnosed as mild, so it would appear that he’s avoided a major injury. That said, there’s a possibility that this IL-stint lasts longer than the 15-day minimum. Hayden Wesneski will take Steele’s place in the rotation for now.

TJ Friedl – OF Cincinnati Reds, Nick Lodolo – SP Cincinnati Reds

Friedl hasn’t played since Tuesday and has already begun running, so he may not need more than ten days. As for Lodolo, this move makes mid-July the earliest that he can return.

Amed Rosario – SS Cleveland Guardians

For now, Rosario’s status should be considered DTD until we’re told otherwise. The Guardians have Monday off, so he may take today off as well for a mini two-day break.

Alex Faedo – SP Detroit Tigers

This doesn’t seem to be an overly serious injury and possibly something that can be fixed over the next fifteen days.

Jose Altuve – 2B Houston Astros

The team is managing the situation here because obliques can be tricky to contain. It’s unclear if Altuve will require an IL-stint, but he may miss a handful of games while he figures things out.

Trayce Thompson – OF Los Angeles Dodgers

Thompson’s struggles have been evident all season, but really came to fruition with an 0-for-39 drought. He hurt himself on a check swing and will miss at least ten days.

Avisail Garcia – OF Miami Marlins

Garcia looked to be ready to return from his rehab assignment, but this will postpone it indefinitely. Stay tuned for more details.

Tyrone Taylor – OF Milwaukee Brewers

Taylor’s injury is a recurring one that could result in a long absence. There’s been no update, other than he will need time away from the team.

Carlos Correa – SS Minnesota Twins

Everything above the feet felt great, as it should, but running was near impossible to do. There was no word on if he felt improved or not, but the fact remains that he is in pain. It wouldn’t be surprising if he needed to go on the Injured List.

Joey Gallo – OF Minnesota Twins

Gallo has been suffering from injuries all season but has largely avoided the Injury List. This time, he will need at least ten days before returning.

Trevor Larnach – OF Minnesota Twins

Looks like Larnach could be back with the team soon.

Gerrit Cole – SP New York Yankees

Cole left after 80 pitches, and the only real news we have is that it was due to cramps. He didn’t really discuss it much here, other than that he took a hydration test and that he was in the cold tub. All that considered, perhaps this is just a minor injury and he’s DTD with the likelihood of making his next start on time.

Chris Bassitt – SP Toronto Blue Jays

The best is wished for Bassitt and his family.

Stephen Strasburg – SP Washington Nationals

This is not the state that anyone would want to be in, and it’s looking very ominous. This could very well be the end of the road for a pitcher who was so dominant when he was healthy and on the mound. Since he helped the Nationals win the World Series, Strasburg has not been the same pitcher and just hasn’t been able to stay healthy.
