Ramon Urias – INF Baltimore Orioles

The word hope is the key here, as he is hoping. When we find out more information, we can get a clearer sense of where he is in his development.

Enrique Hernandez – INF/OF Boston Red Sox

The good news is that he won’t require a trip to the Injured List. Hernandez will look to get his season on track starting today.

Cody Bellinger – OF Chicago Cubs

Bellinger hurt himself by making an incredible catch at the wall on Monday. He missed last night’s game, but it looks like he’s not going to the Injured List.

Kyle Hendricks – SP Chicago Cubs

There was speculation that Hendricks might replace Wesneski in the rotation, but for now, it would appear that’s not the case.

Liam Hendriks – RP Chicago White Sox

There were some rumblings about him being back by last weekend, but that was put on hold. Now, there’s a chance that he could return for this weekend. All that beings said, his velocity is down from where it’s normally been, so that might be a reason to keep him back. Stay tuned.

Eloy Jimenez – OF Chicago White Sox

Nothing new here, as again Jimenez is on the Injured List with the possibility of an early return. All bias aside, this is good news for Jimenez owners everywhere that he could be back sooner than expected.

Josh Naylor – 1B Cleveland Guardians

There wasn’t much about this injury, other than he left with tightness. He may have hurt himself while stretching for an out, but that’s just speculation. There will be more information today.

Jose Ramirez – 3B Cleveland Guardians

The team will be without Ramirez while he grieves with his family.

Lance McCullers Jr. – SP Houston Astros

The team could use the services of McCullers Jr., but he continues to progress slowly. That said, he’s moving forward in a positive direction so that’s something to keep in mind.

Jazz Chisholm Jr. – OF Miami Marlins

The timeline for recovery is for Chisholm’s turf toe. It’s unclear as to whether or not he will require surgery, but the initial diagnosis is not a good one. The team will mix and match their messy outfield in the meantime, but this is a big blow to the team.

Christian Yelich – OF Milwaukee Brewers

For now, Yelich remains DTD, but we shall see if a trip to the Injured List is in the cards. It would seem unlikely for him to miss significant time.

Wade Miley – SP Milwaukee Brewers

It’s unclear as to who will replace Miley in the rotation.

Mason Miller – SP Oakland Athletics

There’s that word “hopeful” again. The difference here is that he is not expected to pitch again this season, as hope could mean that he won’t. That said, this could also be one of those situations where Miller comes back late in September to get a handful of stats under his belt to build with for next year. All of that is speculation, but the fact is that he won’t pitch for a while. Redraft leagues without Injured List spots should strongly consider him a drop going forward.

Vince Velasquez – SP Pittsburgh Pirates

Good news for Velasquez here. The way that Luis Ortiz is pitching, Velasquez should have a spot in the rotation when he is healthy.

Seth Lugo – SP San Diego Padres

The team has options, but we shall see who replaces Lugo for that missed start.

Manny Machado – 3B San Diego Padres

Manager Melvin doesn’t think that Machado will miss time, and isn’t overly concerned. This comes with the team having a day off tomorrow too, which essentially gives him a handful of days to recover. He has a lot of pain tolerance and there is no swelling, but he couldn’t grip a bat. He could be back today, but ideally on Friday.

Tyler Glasnow – SP Tampa Bay Rays

To say that Glasnow was on point Tuesday would be an understatement.

Corey Seager – SS Texas Rangers

As soon as his stomach bug clears, Seager should be in the Texas lineup.

Jacob deGrom – SP Texas Rangers

A step forward, for sure, but a very small one. The team has said that they will take things very cautiously with deGrom, and this is an indication of that statement. It’s looking like another three weeks before he returns, but even that could be jumping the gun.

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. – 1B Toronto Blue Jays

This is the same knee that cost Guerrero Jr. time during the spring. The team was extremely cautious with him then, and will likely be just as cautious now. More will be known after today’s MRI, but it wouldn’t be surprising to see him miss at least a few days if not ten days on the Injured List.
