Injury Report

Austin Riley – 3B Atlanta Braves

It doesn’t sound like this will be an ongoing issue for Riley. Chances are he will be back by tomorrow, but he may miss today’s game.

Marcus Stroman – SP Chicago Cubs

Stroman has progressed quite nicely for just over a week now. He began light throwing about ten days ago and has now evolved to 29 pitches. Depending on how he feels afterward, he may be able to head out to a rehab assignment soon.

Garrett Crochet – RP Chicago White Sox

Crochet has been in one game since he re-stared his rehab. In that game, he fired off two strikeouts in one perfect inning of work. His fastball was thrown three times, and it hit 95 mph every time. It was a promising start to his latest attempt to return.

Hunter Greene – SP Cincinnati Reds

Be prepared.

Matt Vierling – INF Detroit Tigers

It remains to be seen if he will need a day off to recover, but that potential injury didn’t seem to stop Vierling from dominating last night. Stay tuned.

Luis Rengifo – INF Los Angeles Angels

If the Angels didn’t have bad luck, they’d have no luck at all. That’s the only conclusion that can be made after Rengifo strained his left bicep during a practice swing yesterday. Phil Nevin said that it doesn’t look good for him and that he may have to go on the Injured List. There will be an update later today.

Mickey Moniak – OF Los Angeles Angels

Consider Moniak DTD while he recovers from this tightness in his back.

Anthony Rendon – 3B Los Angeles Angels

Rendon is actually eligible to return to the team tomorrow, but given the way his injuries have gone as a member of the Angels, Rod Carew has a better shot of playing in that game.

Shohei Ohtani – UT Los Angeles Angels

It’s looking promising that Ohtani will be in the lineup at least once more before the end of the season. When that will happen remains to be seen.

Zach Neto – SS Los Angeles Angels

Neto is 2-for-5 with one home run in his two games of rehab thus far. He will be re-evaluated tomorrow in order to help determine the next steps.

Mookie Betts – INF/OF Los Angeles Dodgers

X-Rays came back negative, which is good news regarding any structural damage. That said, you never want to see a player in crutches. Here’s hoping that he is just DTD.

Michael Grove – SP Los Angeles Dodgers

It’s a promising outing for Grove, who is rumored to be returning during the team’s next homestand.

Chris Paddack – SP Minnesota Twins

Paddack struck out for natters over 2.2 innings pitched. He also walked two batters and surrendered two runs on two hits. A bit of a mixed bag of results here, but definitely something to work with going forward.

Nestor Cortes – SP New York Yankees

Cortes will continue to throw and progress toward a return. There just isn’t enough calendar time left for him to return safely.

Jarred Kelenic – OF Seattle Mariners

Be prepared.

Dylan Carlson – OF St. Louis Cardinals

The possibility of Carlson returning this season has always been on the table. It could very well happen, though expect some offseason work to help him properly heal.

Adolis Garcia – OF Texas Rangers

There’s about a 60/40 chance that Garcia returns this season. The Rangers may need his services down the stretch in order to try and make the playoffs.
