Michael Harris – OF Atlanta Braves

There was some worry and concern about Harris after jamming his right knee at first base. He exited the game as a precaution, but this report gives comfort to the fact that it probably won’t be an extended absence. That said, anything can change the day after, so stay tuned.

Kyle Wright – SP Atlanta Braves

Wright exited Wednesday’s game after only two innings, where he surrendered three runs on six hits. Wright himself said that the shoulder didn’t feel right, but the team themselves were the ones that took him out and protected his health. This is Wright’s second time on the Injured List this season with right shoulder soreness.

Kenley Jansen – RP Boston Red Sox, Adalberto Mondesi – SS Boston Red Sox

It’s looking like Jansen will be returning in short order, as predicted, by today. Be sure to get him into those lineups if you can. As for Mondesi, he has yet to play any games, so some clarity on his situation would be helpful.

Garrett Whitlock – SP Boston Red Sox

This is an incredible development, as Whitlock went from an ominous second opinion to a fast-track return. He is eligible to return on May 9, and that, or around that, seems like a likely date to be back.

Jameson Taillon – SP Chicago Cubs

Be prepared.

Jake Burger – 3B Chicago White Sox

Burger said that the injury was a freakish thing, stating that it hadn’t crept up on him or lingered around. He also said that he’ll be re-evaluated today, so we’ll know more news when he does. Stay tuned.

Jose Altuve – 2B Houston Astros

It’s great news that he is cleared for his defensive work and to attempt to hold and grip a bat. The final real hurdle to clear is the actual swinging of a bat, which will come eventually. Once that clears itself out, a better timeline for a return will be revealed.

Zach Neto – SS Los Angeles Angels

Neto will be DTD unless otherwise noted, as he seems to have avoided a serious injury here.

Trayce Thompson – OF Los Angeles Dodgers

Here’s hoping that Thompson can get well soon. He’s DTD.

Johnny Cueto – SP Miami Marlins

Great news that Cueto is able to get a rehab assignment in. He was reportedly up to 60 innings pitched in an extended Spring Training start last week. No word on the extent of this rehab.

Adrian Houser – SP Milwaukee Brewers

Be prepared.

Carlos Carrasco – SP New York Mets

Carrasco has not looked right all year, but he’ll have a chance to make things better after this rehab assignment. The team is cautiously approaching his return.

Harrison Bader – OF New York Yankees

Bader had just made his season debut and will miss some time if these tests prove there’s a significant injury. Stay tuned.

Ranger Suarez – SP Philadelphia Phillies

Suarez continues to accelerate his return, and one last good outing this Sunday could be all that he needs to show that he’s ready. That said, the team was slowly cautious with him at the beginning and may retread that momentum near the end too.

Pete Fairbanks – RP Tampa Bay Rays

This report is somewhat reassuring that things are going to be okay. While none of it is what anyone wants to hear, it’s comforting in that the issue should be dealt with within the fifteen-day timeline. It’s also believed that Fairbanks will be able to throw a bullpen and enter a rehab appearance within the next two weeks. For now, consider this a moderate injury.
