Rafael Devers – 3B Boston Red Sox

The hope and belief is that this is a minor issue and that Devers will be back shortly. With the team off on Monday, he could be fine by Tueaday with some rest later today.

Kutter Crawford – RP Boston Red Sox

Crawford was unable to continue after this play and was diagnosed with an ankle contusion. Consider him DTD unless we’re told otherwise.

Liam Hendriks – RP Chicago White Sox

The White Sox play at home tomorrow and it wouldn’t be surprising if that’s when he returns to the team. He looks ready to go and is the feel-good story of the century.

Anthony Rendon – 3B Los Angeles Angels

There is no timetable for his return yet, and until he starts taking groundballs, he’s nowhere near a comeback. The longer this takes, the more likely it is that he’ll need a rehab assignment. Rendon has not played in a game since May 13, which is now more than two weeks ago.

Jesus Sanchez – OF Miami Marlins

Be prepared.

Willy Adames – SS Milwaukee Brewers

Considering the circumstances, this all seems like positive news. Corbin Burnes was apparently with him the entire time at the hospital and was quoted as saying that he was talking and alert the entire time. He was officially placed on the 7-day Concussion Injured List yesterday and will need at least one week to get himself right.

Jose Alvarado – RP Philadelphia Phillies

The hope is that Thomson is right and that Alvarado just went a little too far while trying to return. A setback here could cost him about a week, but coming in stiff could just require an extra day or two. Consider his status the same going forward with the anticipation of him seeing live batters happening soon.

Vince Velasquez – SP Pittsburgh Pirates

This is the same elbow that cost Velasquez time just a week ago. Chances are that he was rushed back to action. There was some speculation that his season would be in jeopardy, and given that this is an immediate recurring injury, that’s not out of the question. Time will tell what this means for him, the team and for Roansy Contreras, who was just relegated to the bullpen.

Manny Machado – 3B San Diego Padres

Machado’s Injury status seems like a DTD sort of thing. It’s unclear if he’s been able to hit yet, but he has taken grounders and hit off of a tee. It feels like he will return within the next week, but that’s speculation.

Xander Bogaerts – SS San Diego Padres

Interesting news here, as Bogaerts came out of Spring Training and soared to new heights. In fact, he had three home runs in the first week and part of that could have been with a rejuvenated wrist. It would appear that it’s this wrist that continues to get worse and might be the catalyst of why he’s struggling. In the month of May, he’s batting .193 with just one home run. For what it’s worth, he did pinch-hit yesterday.

Thairo Estrada – 2B San Francsico Giants

An MRI revealed inflammation in his wrist, and the decision was made to give him time to heal. He went through a range of motions yesterday, but the team wanted to give him extra time to ensure that it wasn’t a long-term issue. He is elible to return on June 6.

Jacob deGrom – SP Texas Rangers

Encouraging news here, as deGrom was able to do everything that he would normally do with a baseball. The only step now might be to do it again but with a higher pitch count. There’s no word on when that will take place. The team is also still undecided about a rehab assignment.

Ezequiel Duran – INF/OF Texas Rangers, Dane Dunning – SP/RP Texas Rangers

Duran had been battling this for a while, so the team decided to give him some time to fully heal. As for Dunning, the best is wished for him and his family.

Kevin Kiermaier – OF Toronto Blue Jays

Consider him DTD, unless otherwise noted.
