Fantrax Injury Report – March 21, 2023 – Are we worried about Kelenic?

Here is the Fantrax Injury Report for Tuesday, March 21, 2023.

The season is not here yet, but why not get a head start and jump in a Fantrax Classic Draft contest? Get a jump on the season with a Best Ball league or maybe a Draft and Hold. Or put some green on the line with a new season-long league to try and conquer. There’s no better time than now to get your baseball on!

Michael Soroka – SP Atlanta Braves

This is a big day for Soroka, who yesterday was noted to have needed a while to ramp up. Looks like Wednesday will be the first step along that journey.

Garrett Whitlock – SP Boston Red Sox

Whitlock will be in consideration for the rotation, just not right away. This could mean that Kutter Crawford will be the team’s fifth starter in their rotation. For what it’s worth, Whitlock walked two batters yesterday with three strikeouts and three hits over three innings pitched.

Aaron Bummer – RP Chicago White Sox

Great that the first bullpen went as planned. Bummer hasn’t thrown from a mound at all since he experienced tightness in his lat about a month ago.

Charlie Blackmon – OF Colorado Rockies

Blackmon took some batting practice reps yesterday and continues on the slow trajectory onward toward Opening Day. He’s at the stage of his career where he might be better served as the team’s DH, rather than in the outfield.

Michael Lorenzon – SP Detroit Tigers

Projected to be in the Tigers’ rotation, this news comes with the hope that it’s a minor setback. The team needs his arm this season if they are going to compete. Stay tuned.

Jarred Kelenic – OF Seattle Mariners

Kelenic has had himself a solid Spring Training, so anything more than a DTD designation would be disappointing. He is currently battling for an outfield spot, and any setback would be detrimental to that. More updates to follow over the next few days.

Paul DeJong – SS St. Louis Cardinals

DeJong had been recuperating from an earlier back injury, and this puts a huge dent in any hope the team had of him returning. Look for Tommy Edman to get the start at shortstop to begin the season.

Hyun Jin Ryu – SP Toronto Blue Jays

Both Ryu and the team have postseason aspirations, and it’s within the realm of possibilities that they both get to contribute in the playoffs. Ryu has been working hard to get back to even this point. Ryu himself has set a mid-July return as his goal, and it’ll be interesting to see if he can maintain that.

Mitch White – SP/RP Toronto Blue Jays

This would be White’s first appearance in a game this spring. A pitch-count that high shows some level of readiness too. With his role unknown at this time, his performance in this game could be pivotal as the team makes a decision.

Alejandro Kirk – C Toronto Blue Jays

With a non-Covid illness, Kirk looks like he’ll have needed a few days of normal rest to get better. He should be ready for Opening Day and fantasy owners can draft with confidence.
