Kyle Wright – SP Atlanta Braves

As expected, Wright himself thought that he’d be out of action for at least two months. This move makes it official while also allowing the team to make another roster move.

John Schreiber – RP Boston Red Sox

Schreiber has been a solid option out of the bullpen, so any extended absence will be missed.

Cody Bellinger – OF Chicago Cubs

Bellinger landed awkwardly after trying to make a catch in the outfield. Consider him DTD while he gets himself right, but he’s avoided anything serious here.

TJ Friedl – OF Cincinnati Reds, Joey Votto – 1B Cincinnati Reds

Friedl had been teetering on the brink of being placed on the Injured List for days. He will miss at least the next week while trying to get better. Votto isn’t eligible to make his debut for the Reds until May 30, but there’s no indication that it’s going to be that soon. He’s still recovering and rehabbing from his early attempt to return.

Triston McKenzie – SP Cleveland Guardians

McKenzie will begin his rehab within the next few days, which is a big step forward for him. There’s been no word on where he will throw or for how long, but a good guess would be a lengthy rehab assignment.

Jose Altuve – 2B Houston Astros

Altuve is feeling better, despite the abysmal performance thus far in rehab. He will likely be rehabbing for another week or so to get himself into game shape.

Jared Walsh – 1B Los Angeles Angels

The situation with Walsh is and has been a tricky one. This is more about how he feels physically and psychologically since his injuries have been head-related. He’s done well in his rehab thus far, but he’ll likely need a long rehab outing in order to fully prepare.

Shohei Ohtani – UT/SP Los Angeles Angels

The stiffness in his neck may have contributed to an off-night on the mound, but if anyone can battle through this, it’s Ohtani. He himself noted that he should be alright despite the feeling of being uncomfortable at times. He will sleep it off and get back at it today.

Anthony Rendon – 3B Los Angeles Angels

Rendon will miss the next week and a half with a groin ailment. It’s unclear if he’ll require more than that amount of time, but given his injury history, it can’t be out of the question.

Brandon Woodruff – SP Milwaukee Brewers

Woodruff originally stated that he expected the end of June to be his timeline for a return. This move to the 60-day IL only allows the team to utilize another roster spot. This does not change Woodruff’s status or health at all.

Kenta Maeda – SP Minnesota Twins

Maeda has been on the Injured List for more than fifteen days. During that time, he has just begun playing catch. He has a long way to go before returning, but this is a step in the right direction.

Luis Severino – SP New York Yankees

Be prepared as Severino is likely to be back sooner, rather than later.

Darick Hall – 1B Philadelphia Phillies

Great news for Hall, as he was a breakout candidate earlier in the year before this unfortunate injury. Time will tell what the Phillies will do at first base.

Jose Alvarado – RP Philadelphia Phillies

Alvarado has been on fire to start the season, so anything that hints at a return is good news for the Phillies. Luckily for the team, they have plenty of options in the bullpen to help out when needed.

Manny Machado – 3B San Diego Padres

A collective sigh of relief from everyone. Machado was HBP on his hand and had to leave the game. There was some concern for a broken bone, but those worries are gone given the results of the x-rays.

Joc Pederson – OF San Francisco Giants

Pederson has been ailing that hand since Friday and had yet to return. He will miss some time to ensure that the hand gets better.

Dylan Carlson – OF St. Louis Cardinals

We likely won’t find out much more until later today. It’s encouraging though that he would have been available in a “super emergency”, though I guess a blowout win doesn’t qualify as one.

Tyler O’Neill – OF St. Louis Cardinals

Great news as O’Neill looks to get himself back on track.

Yandy Diaz – INF Tampa Bay Rays

This is fantastic, as Diaz has been the steady rock for the team. A long absence would have been a big hole to fill.

Corey Seager – SS Texas Rangers

Be prepared, as Seager should be back any day now.

Hyun-Jin Ryu – SP Toronto Blue Jays

This is a positive development for Ryu, as he’s throwing bullpens and feeling great. There’s no word on how well he’s throwing, what pitches, or even how his body feels. That said, this is still good news.
