MLB Injury Report

Cedric Mullins – OF Baltimore Orioles

There will be additional testing done today, but it’s looking likely that Mullins heads to the Injured List. He hurt himself while running toward first base trying to beat out a throw while running. As it stands, Kyle Stowers looks to be the beneficiary of this situation, should Mullins require time on the Injured List.

Cody Bellinger – OF Chicago Cubs

It’s encouraging to see that Bellinger is now doing something. For a while, he was in rest mode and not doing much of anything. Now, at least, he is at least performing in the team’s drills. Look for him to ramp things up in the near future, though he will likely need a rehab assignment before returning.

Mike Clevinger – SP Chicago White Sox, Elvis Andrus – 2B/SS Chicago White Sox

Both players have been out of action for weeks, and a comeback looks to be in the cards this weekend. Stay tuned for specific return dates, but this is good news.

Charlie Blackmon – OF Colorado Rockies

Blackmon and his family are wished well.

Dinelson Lamet – SP Colorado Rockies

Lamet looked outstanding in his final rehab outing and will look to carry along that momentum this Wednesday.

Lance McCullers Jr. – SP Houston Astros

The team hasn’t indicated why he is off the mound, but this should be considered a setback. There has also been no word as to when he will return. His ETA of July seems to be up in the air right now.

Max Muncy – 3B Los Angeles Dodgers

The Dodgers certainly dodged a bullet here, as Muncy’s absence will be limited to a day or two. Look for him to return to the lineup sooner rather than later.

Max Kepler – OF Minnesota Twins, Jorge Polanco – 2B Minnesota Twins

Very encouraging news for both players here. If one had to guess, it would be Kepler back before Polanco.

Nick Gordon – 2B/OF Minnesota Twins

The move was done to allow Royce Lewis to come back to the big leagues. The move also confirms that Gordon’s 2023 season has been and will remain a disaster. He could be back late in the summer, and the hope is that he will be fine.

New York Yankees – Team Update

A lot of these updates seem similar to yesterday’s team update, though there are some specifics in line here. The only definitive one is Donaldson, who will play at Double-A later today. Both Stanton and Trevino have a lot of mystery around when they’ll return and advance, so stay tuned for more details.

Carlos Santana – 1B Pittsburgh Pirates

It still wouldn’t be surprising to see Santana move to the Injured List, given the nature of his injury and his age.

Joc Pederson – OF San Francisco Giants, Joey Bart – C San Francisco Giants

Great news for both players. Pederson being ready to start swinging is a huge step forward, showing that his hand is less swollen than it was before. As for Bart running, that seems like the last hurdle before playing. Look for both to start their rehabs soon.

Andres Munoz – RP Seattle Mariners

Munoz hasn’t played for almost two months, so this is a major step forward. There were moments when he was shut down too. He will likely need a lengthy rehab before returning.

Lars Nootbar – OF St. Louis Cardinals

The hope is that Nootbar won’t need a trip to the Injured List, but anything is possible. That being said, the team has a rare bout of two consecutive days off this week, so he may be fine by the weekend. Stay tuned.

Dylan Carlson – OF St. Louis Cardinals

Carlson had been limited to hitting from the right side of the plate. Now that he has progressed, he will likely try to maintain that level while doing everything else baseball-related. From there he will enter the aforementioned rehab outing.

Tyler O’Neill – OF St. Louis Cardinals

O’Neill has had a mystery illness, which he seems to get better, but then the team doesn’t know why he isn’t progressing. He’s been shut down before and will likely be there soon too. It’s as if they don’t know why he isn’t getting better. The only other options would be something surgical to repair what’s ailing, or there is an underlying issue of unhappiness here as O’Neill and the team have quarreled before.

Pete Fairbanks – RP Tampa Bay Rays

We should know more today about a long-term diagnosis. Fingers crossed that this is minimal and that he can return within the fifteen-day window. That being said, it’s a bit worrisome.
