Corbin Carroll – OF Arizona Diamondbacks

Manager Torey Lovullo stated that this is a precautionary measure, to rule out any and all possible outcomes where there’s something wrong. Carroll has been trending in the right direction too, so there is likely minimal worry here. Stay tuned for the results.

Ronald Acuna – OF Atlanta Braves

Acuna got hit in the shoulder with a pitch and had to leave the game. After some tests, it was revealed that it was just a contusion. Consider him out for at least today, as he does have a history of multi-day DTD injuries that do last a while.

Raisel Iglesias – RP Atlanta Braves

Iglesias has looked sharp thus far in his two outings, and will likely need one more before finalizing a return date.

James Paxton – SP Boston Red Sox

Paxton has struggled throughout his rehab, though his last outing was his longest and most efficient. There have been rumblings about a bullpen role for him, but nothing concrete.

Jameson Taillon – SP Chicago Cubs

Taillon is eligible to return after May 5, but with him throwing off the mound for only the second time later today, he will likely be delayed in that original minimal timeline. He will also likely need a rehab assignment to make sure the groin is okay.

Austin Meadows – OF Detroit Tigers

Meadows has been off due to mental health and anxiety. He will have his absence extended as he joins the 60-day Injured List.

Luis Garcia – SP Houston Astros

Obviously disheartening news here, as the team will figure out today what to do with Garcia. The good news is that he didn’t necessarily pitch much after the injury, which could have led to a disastrous result. There will be more on this later today.

Jose Urquidy – SP Houston Astros

Not good, especially with the designation of “a while” in there. The team has already lost Garcia for the foreseeable future, and will likely be without Urquidy for more than the 15-day minimum. The team’s pitching depth will be tested.

Chas McCormick – OF Houston Astros

The return for McCormick could be getting close. Stay tuned.

J.D. Martinez – UT Los Angeles Dodgers

Despite him being eligible to return as early as this Friday, Martinez will miss the weekend with the possibility of next week being ready.

Justin Verlander – SP New York Mets

Be prepared.

Harrison Bader – OF New York Yankees

The team has said that May 5 would be his date to return, but nothing was set in stone. For now, consider Friday to be a strong consideration.

Aaron Judge – OF New York Yankees

Judge didn’t heal as well as the team had hoped, and, as such, he will need some additional time. He is eligible to return on May 8 due to the retroactive status timeline of his placement. That said, there’s no word yet on if he will be ready by then. Stay tuned.

Bryce Harper – UT Philadelphia Phillies

Somehow. Some way. Bryce is back!

Brandon Crawford – SS San Francisco Giants

The hope is that he can return within ten days, but if the strain is worse than originally thought, then the likelihood is that he needs more time.

Jacob deGrom – SP Texas Rangers

deGrom has been praised for the open communication between him and the team regarding how his elbow feels. Management has said that they will take his time and not rush a return. They want his elbow to feel completely fine before any return to the mound. The hope is that the inflammation can subside within the fifteen-day window.

Corey Seager – SS Texas Rangers

Seager has done this many times over the last little while as he continues to try and ramp things up. He will need a rehab assignment before returning, but this is a nice little step forward.
