Fantrax MLB Injury Report

Julio Rodriguez – OF Seattle Mariners

Rodriguez has been nursing a case of hand inflammation but appears to be close to returning to the field. He was able to swing a bat and put on a glove earlier this week, which were both encouraging signs that this is a minor ailment. He aims to play in a game tomorrow, which is great.

Josh Lowe – OF Tampa Bay Rays

This injury cropped out, seemingly out of nowhere, and was a surprise to many. However, it has been reported that Lowe was bothered by it in the off-season and that it just wouldn’t go away. He also said that he could play now if he needed to, but he felt that it would be best to address the issue before the season starts. This shutdown is a long time to be without baseball activities and is a red flag. The hope is that he can make it for Opening Day and be done with this issue.

Boston Red Sox – Team Update

This is a big update for almost half of the Boston lineup. Duran has been recovering this offseason from a flexor tendon in his toe and looks just about ready to get into game action. He worked hard this winter to get to this point, so it will be interesting to see how that translates onto the field. As for Grissom, he’s been battling a hamstring issue, but that appears to be behind him as he prepares to debut this Sunday. Casas looks to be past the flu and is ready to begin his journey breakout in 2024 with a debut on Saturday. Finally, Wong’s elbow has been bothering him, but he appears all but ready to play this weekend as well.

Robert Stephenson – RP Los Angeles Angels

The hope is that he won’t miss any time in the regular season, but it’s looking like he will. The unsure nature of that statement could lead to the team (and Stephenson) playing it safe and understanding the bigger picture. This is something to keep an eye on as we move toward April.

Christian Walker – 1B Arizona Diamondbacks

There was a scare when the injury originally happened, as Walker himself looked incredibly frustrated when he walked off the field. It turns out that this is nothing more than a bruise and that he will be DTD while it heals. Much better news than what it could have been. There’s no word on when he will return, but it probably won’t be too long of a wait to see him back in the lineup.

Max Muncy – 3B Los Angeles Dodgers

Muncy got hit by a pitch on Wednesday, and it was revealed on Thursday that it was only a bruise. Even better is the report that the swelling on his hand has subsided, leading one to believe he’ll be ready to play shortly. He should be able to swing a bat soon enough before playing again.

Nick Lodolo – SP Cincinnati Reds

While it was a big day for Lodolo for what he did on the mound, it will be an even bigger day afterward to see how his body responds. If everything feels like natural exhaustion and he’s able to recover in a normal fashion, he might be ready to push things to be ready to be placed into a live game situation.

Walker Buehler – SP Los Angeles Dodgers

Buehler looked good in his first session of live BP and felt great. He has said that he’s trying to get his body ready and into a game as he works his way through more of these sessions. He wants to get his body more acclimated into his pitches coinciding with the amount of usage of his arm.

Bo Naylor – C Cleveland Guardians

Naylor has been out of action because of back spasms, but this was a promising development. He looks to be close to in-game action and is still DTD.

Alek Thomas – OF Arizona Diamondbacks

Thomas is planning on swinging a bat later today to test out his ailing wrist. There should be an update afterward regarding a potential timeline for a return. Stay tuned.

Kerry Carpenter – OF Detroit Tigers

It’s been about a week now since Carpenter injured his hamstring. If he’s back to running, there’s a good chance that he can get into some exhibition games soon.
