Fantrax MLB injury Report – Trouble in Cincinnati

Here is the Fantrax Injury Report for Saturday, September 2, 2023. Inside today’s edition, a lot of Reds updates are examined. Hunter Greene is the latest to suffer from Covid-19 on the team and will miss some time. Also, Matt McLain is meeting with medical officials to get more clarity on when he could possibly return. Finally, Jonathan India continues to progress, but it’s a slow ascension back to where he should be. All that and more in today’s Injury Report from Fantrax.

MLB Injury Report

Graham Ashcraft – SP Cincinnati Reds

There were no details yet on the results of this MRI, but it obviously impacted his ability to perform. He exited after just five innings and 72 pitches. The team should provide updates sooner rather than later.

Joey Votto – 1B Cincinnati Reds, Nick Lodolo – SP Cincinnati Reds

We’re almost at the point where he can be “out for the season”, as we have entered the final month of the season. As for Lodolo, he is out for this season and should be ready for Spring Training. It’s good news that the injury will not require surgery in order to be fixed.

Jonathan India – 2B Cincinnati Reds

India still has yet to run at 100%, which makes it clearer that he may need a rehab assignment if and when he’s ready. There’s no guarantee that he will make it back this season.

Matt McLain – SS – Cincinnati Reds

McLain was previously diagnosed with an oblique injury and was without a timetable to return. The hope is that meeting with a doctor will provide clarity.

Hunter Greene – SP Cincinnati Reds

First, it was Ben Lively, and now Hunter Greene. Keep an eye on the situation here with the Reds as they could have others become ill in the near future.

Gavin Williams – SP Cleveland Guardians

Great news for the Guardians and Williams, who will be returning next week.

Javier Baez – SS Detroit Tigers

Baez may be a part-time player by season’s end.

Jose Altuve – 2B Houston Astros

Altuve says that he has hit that exact spot approximately three times this past week, so it’s obviously hurting. He also mentioned elsewhere that he himself didn’t think he could have stayed in the game. It does sound like he will play in today’s game, which is good news for Houston.

Brady Singer – SP Kansas City Royals

Singer was going to have his next turn in the rotation skipped due to arm fatigue and soreness. He will now miss the next few weeks while on the paternity list.

Byron Buxton – UT Minnesota Twins

Uh oh, this isn’t good and puts a wrench in the plans of the Twins. Buxton’s attempt to play in the outfield may not work after all. While there will be an update later today, this unsurprising development might be the last straw in Minneosta’s desire to give Buxton a glove instead of a bat.

Gleyber Torres – 2B New York Yankees

The hope is that this is a minor issue and that Torres can return soon. We should know more about his condition after the team arrives at the ballpark.

J.D. Davis – 3B Sa Francisco Giants

Consider Davis DTD while he recovers.

Josh Jung – 3B Texas Rangers, Nathan Eovaldi – SP Texas Rangers

Jung apparently feels great, but the team doesn’t want to push things too quickly. They have targeted a 2-3 week window for his return, and don’t want to rush him back so as to cause significant injuries for down the road. As for Eovaldi, he had an up-and-down bullpen session which looked good, and they wanted to discuss things with him first. They didn’t eliminate the possibility that he might avoid a rehab appearance altogether, but the report was vague with regard to a timeline.

Danny Jansen – C Toronto Blue Jays

Jansen will likely head to the Injured List at some point while he recovers.

Bo Bichette – SS Toronto Blue Jays

Fingers crossed that Schneider is correct about Bichette.
