Fantrax Injury Report: Shane McClanahan to the IL?

Here is the Fantrax Injury Report. Check out below for information on the boost that the Tigers will be receiving in their rotation. Also, it’s time to wonder about the severity of Shane McClanahan’s back, as he is now on the Injured List for an ailment that won’t go away. The hope is that Framber Valdez’s injury isn’t serious, but it is enough to warrant some worry from the team over today’s starter. Finally, for a long-term deep stash, Brendan Rodgers might be someone to look at for a September return.

MLB Injury Report

Corbin Carroll – OF Arizona Diamondbacks

Carroll missed his second consecutive game with shoulder soreness but sounds close to returning. There’s been no indication one way or another, so we are unfortunately going to have to wait until closer to the opening pitch.

Masataka Yoshida – OF Boston Red Sox

It sounds like Yoshida will be DTD and could miss today’s game against the Blue Jays. They do have tomorrow off, so doing so would give him two days to rest.

Mike Clevinger – SP Chicago White Sox

It sounds like Clevinger will be out for at least another two weeks, according to this schedule. Things can change, but for now, consider a mid-July return to be the best-case scenario.

Brendan Rodgers – 2B Colorado Rockies

This is the most encouraging update that we’ve seen regarding Rodgers. A lot has to go right for him and the team, but the possibility of him returning within the next two months is at least on the table.

Tarik Skubal – SP Detroit Tigers, Eduardo Rodriguez – SP Detroit Tigers

Be prepared.

Framber Valdez – SP Houston Astros

This is quite the conundrum for the Astros, with Valdez making himself unavailable. There is no word on who will be starting for them today, as Cristian Javier has already been claimed for Monday. Stay tuned.

Zach Neto – SS Los Angeles Angels

Yesterday’s fieldwork was the most intense activity Neto has done since he went on the Injured List. He may still need a rehab assignment before returning, so don’t expect him back anytime soon.

Brandon Drury – INF Los Angeles Angels

Big day for both Drury and the Angels, as they decide whether or not he will head to the Injured List.

Chris Taylor – OF Los Angeles Dodgers

Unless too much is being deciphered here, “returing to the field” doesn’t rule out Taylor being the team’s designated hitter. That being said, Taylor is likely to return to the team after the All-Star Break, making this week an unlikely one.

Clayton Kershaw – SP Los Angeles Dodgers

Big day for Kershaw and the Dodgers, as the team will decide whether or not he will start for them tomorrow. Kershaw has been known to take his time when recovering, so it seems likely that he heads to the Injured List. With the All-Star Break right around the corner, some time off would make sense.

Brandon Woodruff – SP Milwaukee Brewers

This is concerning. Even though the team has labeled this move as extra cautious, it’s hard to not worry about the potential long-term ramifications. It seems that by now, he should be farther along than he is, and with him struggling to return, one has to wonder what’s next. Stay tuned for details about when he will return to the mound and continue progressing.

Royce Lewis – 3B Minnesota Twins

The hope is that the injury is a minor one and that the team was being extra cautious with Lewis. With the All-Star Break right around the corner, he will be eligible to return just afterward. Look for Jose Miranda to be called up and take over for Lewis.

Jose Quintana – SP New York Mets

Stay tuned for details, but Quintana could be back soon.

Carlos Rodon – SP New York Yankees

While this looks like a great start for Rodon, keep in mind that this was against Single-A competition. That being said, he is on the cusp of returning and debuting for the Yankees.

Mike Yastrzemski – OF San Francisco Giants

Be prepared.

Lamonte Wade Jr. – OF San Francisco Giants, Michael Conforto – OF San Francisco Giants

Both did not factor into yesterday’s game. Wade’s injury isn’t considered to be serious enough to keep him out long-term. He could return today. Conforto is unlikely to play or pinch-hit at all in this series.

Shane McClanahan – SP Tampa Bay Rays

McClanahan left Friday’s start with back tightness and now is the time to be concerned. This was the second consecutive start where he left early for the same reason. What was once precautionary should now be considered an issue. He will receive treatment for the next two weeks in the hopes of returning just after the All-Star Break.

MacKenzie Gore – SP Washington Nationals

It is unclear if Gore will make his next start. His turn may be skipped because we are so close to the All-Star Break. Stay tuned.
