Lourdes Gurriel – OF Arizona Diamondbacks

Gurriel was not used off of the bench, but the hope is that he’ll return shortly.

Max Fried – SP Atlanta Braves

Fried, who was recently placed on the 60-day IL, is basically starting from scratch. He will need to ramp himself back up, and is at the beginning stages of that journey.

Gunnar Henderson – INF Baltimore Orioles

Gunnar has said that he’s felt better as of late, and was originally injured because of tightening up due to the cooler weather. He was less than 100% but says that he feels better and is likely ready to go today.

Cody Bellinger – OF Chicago Cubs

Makes sense, given the time away from the team. The biggest question isn’t where he’ll go, but when. Bellinger has been out since mid-May and has just recently started a running program.

Nick Senzel – OF Cincinnati Reds

This was the transaction that allowed top prospect Elly Del La Cruz to get his promotion. There’s been no word on if this will be a minimum stay or an extended stay on the Injured List. Stay tuned.

C.J. Cron – 1B Colorado Rockies

Cron has been out of action for weeks and has yet to resume baseball activities. He will likely need a lengthy rehab assignment before he returns to the Rockies.

Kris Bryant – OF Colorado Rockies

There’s no word on how he felt afterward, but it’s good that he’s playing catch. There was also no word on if he hit during BP. All that being said, he has some work to do before returning.

Detroit Tigers – Team Update

So much news here. Faedo met with a finger specialist who recommended and performed the operation. His timetable is unclear given how the injury itself depends on individual healing. Greene is getting daily treatment, which is a positive sign. There’s no indication of when he will return. As for Rodriguez, it’s good news that he is now playing catch. It’s unclear if his diagnosis has changed, given that he met a specialist yesterday. The timetable has apparently been maintained as a ten-week window before he returns. He said that the finger was so swollen that he couldn’t bend it. All of that leads one to believe that he won’t be back for a while despite yesterday’s advancements. Skubal will continue to rehab for the next little while until he is ramped up and confident in returning.

Julio Urias – SP Los Angeles Dodgers

Urias has quickly progressed to this point as the last little while has seen him do a lot. His return could come as soon as this weekend, but that’s if he avoids a minor-league rehab assignment. Stay tuned.

Jazz Chisholm – 2B/OF Miami Marlins

Chisholm has an appointment with a foot specialist today, so we should know more about his status after that.

Royce Lewis – 3B/SS Minnesota Twins

While Lewis didn’t play in yesterday’s game, he at least took in some BP. He’s DTD and should be back soon.

Byron Buxton – OF/UT Minnesota Twins

The move is retroactive to Saturday. Buxton was hit by a pitch in the ribs and will need some time to get better. It’s unfortunate too because the Twins’ plan to keep him healthy while not playing in the field was actually working. This is nothing more than a freak accident.

Chris Paddack – SP Minnesota Twins

Paddack has been throwing off a mound and tossed his first BP session yesterday. He still has a ways to go and is likely returning in mid-September. He’s not an option in fantasy until at least the beginning of the 2024 season.

Aaron Judge – OF New York Yankees

Apparently, the biggest hurdle right now is to get rid of any swelling on his toe. Manager Aaron Boone did say that this would take a few days (though he did mess up and say weeks, however, I think it was a miscue) and go from there. The good news is that there is no break or fracture, so it’s manageable on a much shorter timetable. For now, the biggest thing is to get rid of the aforementioned swelling.

Nestor Cortes – SP New York Yankees

Cortes won’t throw for just under two full weeks and then get re-evaluated. He has already received a cortisone shot too. From there, he’ll need to throw bullpens and participate in a rehab assignment. If things work out, he should be back by the All-Star Break or just afterward.

Harrison Bader – OF New York Yankees

Be prepared.

Carlos Rodon – SP New York Yankees

This is a big day for Rodon, as he will face live hitters for the first time. If he clears this, he will likely advance to a rehab assignment in the near future. If all goes well, a return around the All-Star Break seems likely.

Alec Bohm – 1B/3B Philadelphia Phillies

Potentially great news for the Phillies and fantasy owners everywhere.

Xander Bogaerts – SS San Diego Padres

Bogaerts has taken groundballs and hit in the batting cage. He will continue to simulate in-game experiences. This means that he needs to advance to hitting the ball from high velocity and with movement.

Seth Lugo – SP San Diego Padres

Lugo may actually be able to return without a rehab, given that he threw 50 pitches in his latest bullpen and will likely ramp that up too. Still, it seems like it would be wise for him to throw at least one rehab appearance.

Jacob deGrom – SP Texas Rangers

As the team stated, there was significant regression in the amount of damage done to deGrom’s elbow. He went from mere inflammation to structural damage. It’s unclear if he will have the traditional Tommy John Surgery or if he will go with the newer internal brace which could minimize the time away. Either way, both surgeries will take away the rest of his 2023 season and most of his 2024 season. This is a major disappointment for fantasy owners everywhere. Even more so, the Rangers and deGrom himself, who was in tears while discussing his injury.
