Ronald Acuna – OF Atlanta Braves

While the inability to bend his knee is concerning, it sounds like Acuna has avoided a serious injury and will be fine going forward. He will likely need a day or two to get back to 100% health, but overall he should avoid the Injury List.

Micahel Harris – OF Atlanta Braves

There’s quite a difference in how Harris felt, as he believed that his season would be over. Instead, he was available off the bench last night. While he didn’t play, Snitker did say that he was going to get the day off regardless. Consider him DTD.

Orlando Arcia – SS Atlanta Braves

It’s a big step forward for Arcia, who will later advance to swinging with contact. Due to the nature of the injury and the time away, he will likely need a rehab assignment.

Kyle Wright – SP Atlanta Braves

This is the second time this season that Wright has gone on the Injured List for an injury to his right shoulder. He will miss at least two weeks, though because it’s the same injury, he might need more time to ensure that this doesn’t happen again.

Austin Hays – OF Baltimore Orioles

It’s looking like Hays will get another day or two off to get this finger issue corrected.

Kutter Crawford – SP Boston Red Sox

Crawford left while pitching against the Blue Jays with tightness in his hamstring. His status is up in the air, but he’s likely to avoid the Injured List. That said, the “for now” part of this tweet is something to keep in mind going forward.

Jake Burger – 3B Chicago White Sox

Burger was hopeful to miss only a handful of games, but alas, he will take some time to get his oblique injury corrected. These sorts of injuries can linger into long-term problems, so his 10-day status could extend itself. Stay tuned.

Triston McKenzie – SP Cleveland Guardians

McKenzie has been ramping his arm up for a while now, and the 20 pitches thrown represent the most he’s done yet. There is no timeline for him to throw more than just the fastball, but that would be the next big step in his recovery plan. He is eligible to return as of May 29, but that seems like it will be too soon.

Aaron Civale – SP Cleveland Guardians

Civale will figure out the next steps in his recovery plan later today as he felt great physically after this session. There will be more revealed after the meeting, but his throwing is a good first step.

Garrett Mitchell – OF Milwaukee Brewers

While it’s positive that the surgery was a success, this will be a lost year in his development as he’s likely to miss the remainder of the season. While there is a small sliver of hope that he does return, that shouldn’t be relied on.

Luis Severino – SP New York Yankees

This isn’t necessarily bad news, but it’s not great either. All this does is delay his return by a few days, assuming that all goes well in this live session. Severino was supposed to begin a rehab assignment, but that will likely wait until next week.

Trevor May – RP Oakland Athletics

There’s been no word if this is injury-related or anxiety-related, but one would have to guess that it’s the latter or the two.

Robbie Ray – SP Seattle Mariners

It’s been noted by Kramer too that Ray will likely not be ready for Spring Training because of the UCL reconstruction. This is a massive injury for Ray, and his performance, now his appearance, for the 2024 season will be in question as well.

Nolan Gorman, INF St. Louis Cardinals, Jack Flaherty – SP St. Louis Cardinals

Gorman’s injury isn’t believed to be serious, but he’ll likely need a day or two of rest before returning. Consider him DTD for now. As for Flaherty, it was his performance that led to his exit, not anything health-related.

Corey Seager – SS Texas Rangers

That’s very promising news regarding Seager, as he’s posied to return in short order. Even if there’s some sort of delay in this estimate, if all goes right, he should be back within two weeks. Stay tuned, but this is a positive development.
