MLB Injury Report

Max Fried – SP Atlanta Braves

It looks like Fried will start at some point today. No major worries about him missing yesterday’s start.

Cedric Mullins – OF Baltimore Orioles

It’s a tough injury to speculate on when we don’t know when he’ll be able to return. All that can be said is, to keep an eye on when Mullins starts to run at full speed and know that his return could be shortly afterward.

Nick Madrigal – 2B/3B Chicago Cubs

The hope is that Madrigal’s rehab assignment won’t be too long and that he can maintain the momentum that he had prior to getting injured.

Andrew Vaughn – 1B/OF Chicago Cubs

Now that we know there is no structural damage, consider Vaughn DTD with a bruise on his foot. It’ll all be about his tolerance level now and his ability to play baseball.

Mike Clevinger – SP Chicago White Sox, Liam Hendriks – RP Chicago White Sox

Clevinger will be getting a big ramp-up during his next time out, upping his pitch total to 60 pitches. There’s been no indication of whether or not he will need a rehab assignment. As for Hendriks, it’s unclear how his velocity is up, considering he averaged almost two miles per hour more earlier this season and almost four miles per hour more last season. Still, he’s up and throwing, which is a good sign. We should know more about his timeline once we hear from his trainers.

Yordan Alvarez – OF Houston Astros

It’s looking like Monday is the date that’s targeted for the return of Alvarez. Great news.

Jose Altuve – 2B Houston Astros

Altuve continues to build himself back up toward a return, but a rehab assignment is likely in the cards before he’s back. There’s been no word on when that will happen.

Tommy Pham – OF New York Mets

This is a recurring injury, which makes the situation somewhat concerning. Even though it’s not as bad as it once was, chances are that it will get worse when Pham starts to play again. It feels like an Injury List designation is what’s needed.

Starling Marte – OF New York Mets

Marte had apparently been throwing up because of these migraines, so it’s only fitting that he take some time to heal up. This has been a chronic condition for him in the past, so the team has decided to deal with it and not try to find the cause of it.

Josh Donaldson – 3B New York Yankees

This could ultimately end the season for Donaldson, and maybe even his career.

Willie Calhoun – OF New York Yankees, Jake Bauers – 1B/OF New York Yankees

Both players are looking to come back and help this hurting Yankees’ roster soon enough.

Jarred Kelenic – OF Seattle Mariners

Kelenic has been quite apologetic about this action, but it doesn’t change the fact that this is a major setback. Kelenic has evolved to hitting the ball harder, more often, and all over the field, but now he will have to watch as others take his place. There’s no timetable for his return.

Tommy Edman – INF/OF St. Louis Cardinals

Edman has been out since before the All-Star Break with a wrist injury, but it looks like next week will be when he starts to ramp himself up.
