MLB Injury Report

Ozzie Albies – 2B Atlanta Braves

There was a report over the weekend about how Albies was doing a lot of the baseball activities necessary. The video clip of him running was encouraging, though he hadn’t been doing these things at full speed. It’s good news that he may not even need a rehab appearance and could be back with the Braves as of this Friday if he’s ready to do so. Stay tuned.

Kyle Wright – SP Atlanta Braves

Wright has been out of action since the beginning of May. He will likely require close to the allotted 20-day allowed for rehab assignments before coming back to the Braves. It’s unclear what his role will be with the club once he does return.

Jarren Duran – OF Boston Red Sox

The team looks prepared to be without Duran for the foreseeable future with the promotion of Abreu. That said, nothing is written in stone and Duran could be back with the team soon enough. There was some speculation that all of this is precautionary.

Cal Quantrill – SP Cleveland Guardians

Quantrill was hit hard in this game, as the three home runs allowed really stand out here. This was supposed to be his final rehab game, and it very well might be, given the 84 pitches thrown.

Zack Greinke – SP Kansas City Royals

It would appear that everything is lining up for Greinke to be activated today. There was no word on “everything checking itself out”.

Mike Trout – OF Los Angeles Angels

It’s looking like Trout Tuesday is upon us. Fantastic.

Luis Arraez – INF Miami Marlins

Consider Arraez DTD while he recovers from this stomach ailment.

Johnny Cueto – SP Miami Marlins

Cueto will miss his next few turns in the rotation while he recovers from this viral infection.

Luis Medina – SP Oakland Athletics

Medina will miss the next two weeks with a blister injury. It’s unclear as to when he contracted it.

Mason Miller – SP Oakland Athletics

Miller would finish his outing after 1.2 innings pitched, and 32 pitches thrown. It was a cautious outing for him, in that he didn’t really extend himself more than his first outing. He still has a ways to go and will seemingly need close to the twenty allotted days players get in rehab.

Henry Davis – C/OF Pittsburgh Pirates

It looks like Davis’ hand has been hurting for a while, and time away from swinging and playing baseball could be what he needs. He’s recorded one hit in the last week.

San Francisco Giants – Team Update

There is a lot to unpack here. First off, Brebbia could be back within a couple of weeks as he is a reliever who may not need as much time as a stretched-out starter. Also, Crawford will get a better idea of how serious his forearm strain could be. He has scuffled to the tune of one hit since August 3 and his batting average has fallen below the Mendoza Line. Haniger will need a long rehab assignment since he hasn’t played in months. Pollock has been in and out of the lineup all season with injuries and this is no different. Stripling is hopeful to ramp things up once he starts throwing again, as he just went on the Injured List a few days ago. Finally, Yastrzemski seems to be back from his setback and could be back with the Giants in short order.

Bryan Woo – SP Seattle Mariners

Be prepared.

Emerson Hancock – SP Seattle Mariners

Hancock injured himself during his last outing and will miss time while he recovers. The initial thought was that Woo would be the activated player to take his spot, but instead, it was a returning J.P. Crawford. It will be interesting to see what the team does for Woo’s activation today.

Dylan Carlson – OF St. Louis Cardinals

It’s beginning to look like Carlson won’t see another pitch this season, as his ankle has gotten to be too much. Perhaps it’s been a reason for his disappointing season-long numbers.

Ryan Helsley – RP St. Louis Cardinals

Helsley hasn’t pitched since the start of June and has had setbacks during his recovery. Every time he thinks he’s progressed, he seemingly suffers a setback and needs to be re-evaluated. There is an ominous tone to his timeline here with the potential being season-ending.

Nolan Gorman – INF St. Louis Cardinals

While it’s encouraging that Gorman is making progress, the fact that he’s unable to bend at the waist is concerning. He will likely need a rehab assignment at some point to prove that he’s able to play. It may be another two weeks before we see him back with the Cardinals.
