MLB Injury Report

Michael Harris III – OF Atlanta Braves

Harris missed yesterday’s game with a foot contusion. X-Rays came back clean with no structural damage. This all leads to a potentially quick return today by the speedy outfielder.

Tanner Houck – SP Boston Red Sox

Be prepared.

Jarren Duran – OF Boston Red Sox

It was speculated that Duran hurt himself while trying to grab a home run by Gleyber Torres. No word on how serious the situation is with him, but it is a foot contusion. The team will examine him today to determine the next steps.

Jurickson Profar – OF Colorado Rockies

Profar was out of the game to start, and there was some belief that he was resting his injured knee. His return to pinch-hit likely solidifies that he will be fine to return to the lineup when the team resumes games on Tuesday.

Mike Trout – OF Los Angeles Angels

The Angels play a later game tonight at home, so we may not know until later in the day whether or not Trout gets activated. The important thing to note is that he is very close to returning.

Sal Frelick – OF Milwaukee Brewers

Frelick gets a two-day break here in an attempt to let things heal on their own. The hope is that he doesn’t miss any more time than he already has.

Josh Donaldson – 3B New York Yankees

Donaldson continues to progress, as he was now started sprinting. That’s a major development for him, considering the calf strain that he sustained a while back. He isn’t eligible to return until the middle of September, but it looks like he has every intention of returning.

Cristian Pache – OF Philadelphia Phillies

It remains to be seen if this hip tightness turns from a minor delay into a full-blown setback. Either way, expect some updates this week. Pache is 6-for-25 with two stolen bases during his rehab with Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Thairo Estrada – INF San Francisco Giants

Estrada was hit by a pitch in Sunday’s game but remained in the game after that. He was in some pain but was able to continue playing. We should know more about his hand soon enough after his X-Rays.

Lamonte Wade Jr. – OF San Francisco Giants

This was before their game yesterday, as there wasn’t much news on the status of Wade. For what it’s worth, Matos did make it into the lineup. Wade did not go on the Injured List but is considered DTD for now.

Emerson Hancock – SP Seattle Mariners

The Mariners had planned on going with a six-man rotation, but those plans might have to change given this injury. There will be more updates later today on his status. Expect Bryan Woo to return at some point during the White Sox, but they had always wanted to limit his innings. If Hancock goes to the Injured List, the team may need to make a roster move.

Nathan Eovaldi – SP Texas Rangers

Eovaldi threw two simulated innings last week more than once and appears ready to take the next step forward. He will throw to live hitters before hopefully entering a bullpen session. He may need a rehab assignment as well, as this all seems to be getting him ready for their potential playoff run.

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. – 1B Toronto Blue Jays

Guerrero left Sunday’s game due to left middle finger discomfort but appears to be fine as of now. The team was ahead in the game by a wide margin, and that may have had something to do with the potentially precautionary removal. Expect some updates tomorrow.
