MLB Injury Report

Gunnar Henderson – SS Baltimore Orioles

Since an initial injury scare to open camp, Henderson has been trending in the right direction. Opening Day never seemed to be in jeopardy, and this only confirms that fact. While anything can happen over the next few days, it looks as though he will make his debut before the weekend.

Craig Kimbrel – RP Baltimore Orioles

Kimbrel said that this was an issue that he didn’t want to try and pitch through because of how early in camp things are. Instead, he chose to wait two days and throw after the weekend. Still, he said he was pleased by how the ball was leaving his hand, which is a key component of any pitching practice. Time will tell how he feels after throwing later on today.

Triston Casas – 1B Boston Red Sox

The absence by Casas isn’t anything major, and he should be ready to go midweek. He is still in line to be the team’s first baseman and is primed for a breakout season.

John Brebbia – RP Chicago White Sox

This is not the way that Brebbia envisioned his camp to begin. He is slated to compete for the closer’s job, and missing any time due to injury will not help his cause. This setback will cost him at least a week and could result in him not in line for saves to begin the season. There’s a chance that he begins the season on the Injured List, but only time will tell if that’s the case.

Jonathan India – 2B Cincinnati Reds

India recently suffered a setback with his plantar fasciitis and will require significant time off. As a result, his utility-role value takes a hit to start the season, as he won’t be doing much of anything. Look for Noelvi Marte and Christian Encarnacion-Strand to gain an uptick in playing time while this issue gets resolved. The hope is that India can finally overcome this issue which plagued him last season.

Kerry Carpenter – OF Detroit Tigers

Carpenter is vying for a starter’s role and this setback hurts his case to start. That said, this seems like more of a precautionary setback than anything. There should be updates soon on his injury and if any progress was made over the weekend.

Luis Rengifo – 2B Los Angeles Angels

Rengifo finished his 2023 season on the Injured List with a bicep ailment. Now he starts his Spring with a hamstring issue. He is an important utility piece for the Angels this year, so any issues need to be taken seriously. With him likely ready for Opening Day, the hope is that he can return to the team’s lineup by midweek.

Shohei Ohtani – DH Los Angeles Angels

This is scheduled to be Ohtani’s first in-game action as a member of the Dodgers. He is being eased into games following offseason elbow surgery. One can bet that all eyes will be on him this game, especially his first at-bat.

Braxton Garrett – SP Miami Marlins

This is great news after he came into camp with shoulder soreness. Any and all progression will likely be slow, as he is an important piece of their rotation. Still, fantasy owners can feel a sense of relief knowing that he seems to be headed in the right direction.

Kodai Senga – SP New York Mets

Senga will get some rest and let the injection do its thing. From there, he will need to rebuild himself back up to the point of being able to pitch through his rested shoulder over a long period. DiComo also speculated a timeline for a return. He said that it’s not implausible for Senga to return at some point in May. Senga himself said that it all depends on how his shoulder responds to a gradual build-up. While all of that is definitely on the table as a possibility, there can be no setbacks as all must go right in the process.

Alec Bohm – 3B Philadelphia Phillies

Neck spasms have halted his Spring debut, but it appears that he will be ready to go in a few days. This looks to be nothing more than a small setback.

Yuki Matsui – RP San Diego Padres

This is unfortunate after a dominant performance during the team’s first Spring Training game. The hope is that this doesn’t crop up again and that he can get back to trying to vie for saves in the Padres’ bullpen.

Matt Brash – RP Seattle Mariners

Brash said that he didn’t feel as great as he would have liked after his second bullpen in camp. He’s dealt with this sort of issue before, so he’ll likely know how to handle this. Still, it’s a discouraging way to begin a season. Once he begins his planned throwing session this week, the team will have a better handle on what to expect moving forward.

Evan Carter – OF Texas Rangers

Carter got hit on the left hand/wrist area and was forced to leave the game. There was a fear that it could have been more serious, but this looks to be nothing more than a minor bruise. He is DTD for now unless we hear otherwise.
