MLB Injury Report

Merrill Kelly – SP Arizona Diamondbacks

Kelly pitched well last night but had to exit the game after an apparent cramp that he felt. According to him in the clip above, this is something that he’s felt many times before, just not so much recently. Furthermore, he and the team believe that it is unrelated to the blood clots that he suffers from. This isn’t expected to be a serious injury, but something of note for now.

Aaron Hicks – OF Baltimore Orioles

According to this report, if all goes well, Hicks could be back with the Orioles for the beginning of their series at San Diego. Whether or not that happens remains to be seen, but the optimism is there nonetheless.

Cedric Mullins – OF Baltimore Orioles

That road trip begins tomorrow in Seattle, so Mullins looks to be close to a return. Time will tell if that comes to fruition, but it’s still a promising development.

Ramon Urias – INF Baltimore Orioles

Urias did not come into last night’s game, but it’s looking like he is close to a return either way.

Justin Turner – INF Boston Red Sox

It looks as if Turner is playing through something more serious than a DTD-like injury. Whether or not he takes some time away from the team to let things heal remains to be seen. For now, consider him DTD, and don’t expect him to play anytime soon.

Garrett Whitlock – SP/RP Boston Red Sox

Whitlock apparently looked and felt good during this outing. The speculation is that he will return on Sunday as a multi-inning reliever.

Luis Robert – OF Chicago White Sox

Robert has already had his X-rays come back negative, so the injury doesn’t appear to be that serious. With the team having today off, there’s a chance that he won’t miss any time whatsoever.

Ben Lively – SP Cincinnati Reds, Will Benson – OF Cincinnati Reds

Lively has been out of action since after he gave up thirteen runs in four innings on August 1, but seems ready to rejoin the team. As for Benson, consider him DTD for now until we’re told otherwise.

Kris Bryant – OF Colorado Rockies

Bryant has missed the last two weeks with this injury and doesn’t appear close to returning. With no end in sight to the splint, it makes it more and more likely that he will need a rehab assignment before returning.

Charlie Blackmon – OF Colorado Rockies

Blackmon seems to be getting close to a return here, though there has been no mention of a rehab appearance. He last played a game on June 10, so it would seem, that a rehab appearance would be warranted.

J.D. Martinez – UT Los Angeles Dodgers

There was some concern earlier in the week that the injury to Martinez would lead to a trip to the Injured List. After reassuring MRI results and epidural injection, it looks like he is on track to return without missing significant time.

Joey Wiemer – OF Milwaukee Brewers, Carlos Santana – 1B Milwaukee Brewers

Look for Wiemer to get back into the lineup soon enough. Teammate Carlos Santana has missed two games in a row with a stomach virus.

Jesse Winker – OF Milwaukee Brewers

Winker has been out of action since July with back spasms and has struggled all season.

Donovan Solano – 1B Minnesota Twins

Hayes made a separate post to clarify any misconceptions about Solano’s injury. As it stands, this is not a season-ending injury, which is great news. That said, a trip to the Injured List is certainly on the table. Stay tuned.

Tyler O’Neill – OF St. Louis Cardinals

The hope is that O’Neill can be in today’s lineup for the Cardinals. That remains to be seen but is a possibility.

Tyer Glasnow – SP Tampa Bay Rays

While things are looking good for Glasnow as it stands, fantasy owners need to be aware that nothing is set in stone. There is no guarantee that he does in fact play on Saturday and everyone should have a backup plan ready, just in case.

Josh Jung – 3B Texas Rangers

The hope is that Jung misses six weeks and returns to the team before the end of the season. Fingers crossed that happens.

Nathan Eovaldi – SP Texas Rangers

This was not the greatest news, as Eovaldi hasn’t pitched since July 18, and almost one month later he’s up to 20 pitches. The aforementioned substantial bullpen should be more reassuring and encouraging.

Jonah Heim – C Texas Rangers

Wow, this came from out of nowhere. Take it and run. Hopefully, things go well and Heim can return as soon as possible. That said, wrist injuries can take a while to fully heal in the sense of giving hitters their full power back.
