MLB Injury Report

Tanner Houck – SP Boston Red Sox

Houck’s first two rehab appearances have seen him work up to only three innings pitched. His next outing will likely be a longer one in order for him to be stretched out. There has been no word about when that will happen.

Marcus Stroman – SP Chicago Cubs

Stroman is eligible to return this Wednesday, so look for him to be back around that date.

Charlie Blackmon – OF Colorado Rockies

Blackmon started his rehab assignment yesterday. He finished 2-for-5 with a double. With a few more games under his belt, we may see him back with the Rockies in no time.

Javier Baez – SS Detroit Tigers

The best is wished for the Baez family.

Jose Abreu – 1B Houston Astros

There’s no telling the specifics of exactly when Abreu’s back problems came and went. Nor do we know if this is a reason or an excuse. All we know is that he has struggled this year and is currently sitting 50 points below his career batting average. For now, consider him to be gone for just ten days, but it wouldn’t be surprising if the time away from this injury lasted much longer.

Maikel Garcia – INF Kansas City Royals

The additional two days off will hopefully be enough for Garcia to return. Stay tuned.

J.D. Martinez – UT Los Angeles Dodgers

Be prepared (for Tuesday).

Mookie Betts – INF/OF Los Angeles Dodgers

It looks like Betts is just under the weather. He should be back soon enough.

Michael Wacha – SP San Diego Padres

Be prepared.

Dylan Carlson – OF St. Louis Cardinals

Carlson hurt himself during a game earlier in the week. Oblique injuries can be tricky because they can linger over time. There’s no guarantee that he will return within the ten-day minimum timeframe. In all likelihood, we’re looking at a mid-September return.

Tyler Glasnow – SP Tampa Bay Rays, Shane McClanahan – SP Tampa Bay Rays

According to the report, Glasnow threw a fifteen-pitch bullpen yesterday with trainers and staff watching him. He has been getting better every day, but he (Glasnow) also said that this is something that he experiences every two years. That’s something to make a note of for later. The team is being extra cautious with him. He is slated to return on Monday. As for McClanahan, he was transferred to the 60-day Injured List and will essentially miss the rest of the season. He could pitch late in the postseason, but that seems unlikely to happen even if the team makes it that far. He will meet with doctors tomorrow and a decision about surgery and his future will be made then.

Lane Thomas – OF Washington Nationals

Consider Thomas DTD for now until we’re told otherwise.
