Fantrax MLB Injury Report

Riley Greene – OF Detroit Tigers

Check this off as another hurdle that Greene has overcome as he recovers this off-season. The mindset of him not even thinking about his arm is a good sign too, as he seems to be feeling more like his normal self. It will be interesting to see how feels physically afterward, but all things considered, this is a big step forward for Greene. Since undergoing Tommy John Surgery in September, the plan was for him to be ready for the start of this season, especially because the surgery was performed on his non-throwing elbow.

Kyle Bradish – SP Baltimore Orioles

Bradish later threw from 90 feet, which is a great sign of where he is physically. Progressing that far within a day is an indication that he felt good and was able to extend himself. After receiving a PRP injection last week, his status for this season is still up in the air. It is unclear if and when he will pitch for the Orioles this season.

Kodai Senga – SP New York Mets

After throwing yesterday, Senga came into camp today saying that his arm was tired and not its usual self. This is not good news, especially because he is a big piece of the Mets’ rotation and their hopes for 2024. He was set for testing on Wednesday afternoon with not much else known. The team doesn’t want to speculate anything without having all of the facts in front of them. Stay tuned.

Brandon Woodruff – SP Milwaukee Brewers

Days after re-signing with the Brewers, it was revealed that he began a throwing program last week. While he is expected to miss the entire 2024 season, he has not yet ruled out the possibility of coming back late in the year. That said, he has said that he will follow the advice of the doctors and medical professionals to ensure that when he does come back, it is on the right terms and timeline.

Noelvie Marte – 3B Cincinnati Reds

This news is interesting on many levels. First, we now know that Marte suffered a Grade 2 hamstring strain. This helps explain why he is still nursing the injury after so many months and is not at full strength. Secondly, this at least gives a timeline of when he should return, which seems to be after the first five games of Spring training. Finally, it would appear that he is in line to be ready for Opening Day, which is ultimately what matters most.

Corey Seager – SS Texas Rangers

Seager had sports hernia surgery last month to repair a lingering injury that just wouldn’t go away. He has since been cleared for some form of exercising and training, but not for baseball activities. It remains to be seen if he will need to start the season on the Injured List, but it’s looking more and more likely each day. No matter the case, it doesn’t appear that he will miss much time if any at all, though that’s not a definitive conclusion.

Manny Machado – 3B San Diego Padres

Machado has been progressing in a positive direction since arriving at camp. He’s been able to clear himself of the hurdles of playing catch, swinging a bat at 100 percent, and even taking some ground balls. That being said, he’s not quite ready to participate in real-game action and will miss his team’s opening game at Spring Traning. Still, it’s looking like he’ll be ready to play shortly, albeit as the team’s designated hitter. There is still no timeline for him to return to playing defensively on the field.

Matt McLain – SS Cincinnati Reds

This is somewhat concerning in that he has already reinjured an ailment from last season. He has been able to exercise and train since the injury was reported by doing light athletic work in the field. Still, missing any amount of time is a negative, especially on a team that is absolutely loaded with talent.

Tommy Edman – 2B/SS/OF St. Louis Cardinals

Edman needs several weeks before returning to participate in full activities, though the team believes that he can still be ready for Opening Day. Time is running out for that to come true, but it doesn’t sound like the Cardinals are overly worried. Still, returning from wrist surgery can be tricky in that it can take players a long time to fully feel themselves at the plate. With limited power to begin with, there’s a chance that fantasy owners will need to exercise patience with him early in the season.
