MLB Injury Report

Aaron Hicks – OF Baltimore Orioles

Hicks has been on and off the Injured List for quite some time now. He last played on August 15, but prior to that missed three more weeks of action. It is unclear how he will fit into the Orioles’ lineup, but he will likely get a lot of playing time.

Boston Red Sox – Team Update

Reyes has been injured for quite some time now and will need ten days to let his elbow properly heal. As for Abreu, look for him to be back before the end of the week.

Matt McLain – SS Cincinnati Reds

According to this video, McLain had been playing through this injury. It’s been hurting for a while to the point where when he swung it became unbearable. He also said that it hasn’t yet been determined if this is a Grade 1 or a Grade 2 strain. If it is the latter, then expect a lengthy absence which could cost him the rest of the season.

Josh Naylor – 1B Cleveland Guardians

This is great news, as Naylor has been out of action for quite some time. He has missed all of August but could be back in the middle of September to help fantasy owners and the Guardians down the stretch.

Cal Quantrill – SP Cleveland Guardians

Be prepared.

Kris Bryant – OF Colorado Rockies

Bryant has been out of action since the end of July and is now going to have the splint removed. It remains to be seen if he can be helpful down the stretch and will likely need a lengthy rehab assignment.

Brendan Rodgers – 2B Colorado Rockies

Consider Rodgers DTD while he recovers from this illness.

Brady Singer – SP Kansas City Royals

The hope is that this fatigue will sort itself out so that Singer can make his next turn in the rotation. Stay tuned.

Nick Pratto – 1B Kansas City Royals

Pratto recently suffered a setback while rehabbing, so this is a welcome sight. The hope is that the Royals have him back within the week.

Los Angeles Angels – Team Update

Silseth continues to recover as it looks like he’s avoided a catastrophe. He will continue to be monitored going forward. As for Schanuel, look for him to get back into the lineup soon once he recovers from this bit of food poisoning. Finally, Cron continues to be without a timetable for a return as he has yet to resume baseball activities.

J.D. Martinez – UT Los Angeles Dodgers

This is definitely good news, though the specifics of exactly when aren’t yet known.

Tony Gonsolin – SP Los Angeles Dodgers

Gonsolin will miss the rest of this season and most of next as he recovers from this procedure. Terrible news.

Adrian Houser – SP Milwaukee Brewers

There were some reports that the team would go with a four-man rotation because of their shortened week. That said, this report says that they will be looking to fill the void. Either way, look for something to be announced soon.

Starling Marte – OF New York Mets

It wouldn’t be surprising if Marte didn’t play again this season.

Edwin Diaz – RP New York Mets

Diaz throwing bullpen sessions is fantastic news. He still remains determined to return before the end of the season, and he just might, based on these reports.

Luis Medina – SP Oakland Athletics, Mason Miller – SP Oakland Athletcis

Medina throwing this bullpen session without any complications is good news regarding his blister. He should be back soon enough, and possibly without a rehab assignment. As for Miller, there is speculation that this will be his final rehab outing before returning.

Yu Darvish – SP San Diego Padres

Darvish went for tests earlier in the day as the extent of this injury is unknown. It’s good that Darvish feels he should be able to pitch again, but he is not a medical professional. We should know more later today.

Steven Matz – SP St. Louis Cardinals

It looks like there’s a chance that Matz could return, though we should know more once the MRI results are revealed.

St. Louis Cardinals – Team Update

Liberatore is working on getting himself back into the lineup before the end of the season. He’ll want to prove his worth to the team heading into next year. As for Nootbar and Helsley, both are close to returning and could be back tomorrow.

Nathan Eovaldi – SP Texas Rangers

The Rangers are being extremely cautious with Eovaldi. Either they know something is there or they don’t want to make a mistake with him with the playoffs right around the corner.

Bo Bichette – SS Toronto Blue Jays

Bichette went for an MRI yesterday to determine the extent of his right quad. He’s been playing through this injury and the Jays hope that it’s something that can be of the DTD variety. As it states, we’ll know more about his status today.

Matt Chapman – 3B Toronto Blue Jays

Chapman suffered this injury weeks ago while weightlifting and it seems to linger. He’ll need at least ten days to get himself right.

Erik Swanson – RP Toronto Blue Jays

Here’s hoping that this comes to fruition and that Swanson can return in minimal time.

Stone Garrett – OF Washington Nationals

Garrett is expected to be ready for Spring Training.
