MLB Injury Report – Back to Back Problems for Yelich

Here is the Fantrax MLB Injury Report for Saturday, April 13, 2024. Inside, you’ll see the latest on Christian Yelich’s back, Carlos Correa’s side, and the good news on Jhoan Duran and Paul Sewald. All of that and more in today’s Injury Report from Fantrax.

MLB Injury Report – Saturday, April 11, 2024.

Christian Yelich – OF Milwaukee Brewers

Back pains are nothing new for Yelich, who has experienced these for most of his professional career. He doesn’t seem to think this time is as bad as previous ailments, but he did say he wasn’t sure and that he wouldn’t know until the next few days. He wants to see how he bounces back before determining if he will need time on the Injured List. It’s an unfortunate development given how outstanding a start to the season he was having. Chances are that he will miss the rest of the weekend series before the team decides his fate for next week.

Carlos Correa – SS Minnesota Twins

Correa lumbered his way through an at-bat midway through last night’s game and was later replaced in the lineup. It doesn’t sound promising that he was in so much pain and that the team expects him to miss some time. Obliques can be a tricky injury to overcome and he may miss significant time here. Stay tuned.

Jhoan Duran – RP Minnesota Twins

It’s good news that Duran got in the workout he needed and that he continues to feel good while doing so.

Paul Sewald – RP Arizona Diamondbacks

More good bullpen news here, as Sewald is also feeling better and ready to throw his first bullpen. It will be interesting to see how his body responds to this upcoming session and if they intensify his workload after that. Regardless of the outcome, this is great news.

Eduardo Rodriguez – SP Arizona Diamondbacks

Manager Torey Lovullo said that there will be a two-week pause in any throwing from Rodriguez to see if the soreness subsides. The hope is that he can return to throwing then and continue along a trajectory that leads him back to the Arizona rotation. For now, though, consider him out of action for an extended period.

Alek Thomas – OF Arizona Diamondbacks

It’s a good sign that Thomas can do all that he has been doing, but he needs to clear the hurdle of fielding before a minor-league rehab stint is considered. While he’s not quite there yet, he’s in a good spot, all things considered.

Rafael Devers – 3B Boston Red Sox

It’s been determined too that Devers likely won’t be available today either. That being said, Cora has said multiple times that it is too early to grind. Whether that means the shoulder is close to being healthy or not, the fact remains that he will rest for the time being. It wouldn’t be surprising to see him land on the Injured List at some point to give him extended time off.

Nick Pivetta – SP Boston Red Sox

This is a surprising development, considering the injury in question. It’s encouraging that the team doesn’t feel overly concerned here, but it’s also something to monitor for setbacks and regression to the mean of what type of injury this is and the usual timelines for recovery.

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

Great news here on both Edman and Carlson, as they can start to increase the intensity of what they’re doing. Look for updates next week on both.

Chas McCormick – OF Houston Astros

The news of this injury came out quite suddenly while everyone was waiting for the lineup to be released. The hope is that this is a minor setback for him with a return on the horizon soon enough.

Nathaniel Lowe – 1B Texas Rangers, Justin Verlander – SP Houston Astros

This could be Verlander’s final rehab start and will be Lowe’s second rehab game.

Miami Marlins – Team Update

Of note here, Edward Cabrera will be stretched out even further in this rehab start, this time looking to go six innings with 90 pitches thrown. As for Braxton Garrett, he wound up throwing six innings of work last night and surrendered two home runs while striking out four batters. He threw 86 pitches in total.

Chicago White Sox – Team Update

The news on Moncada is encouraging, as it was originally believed that he would miss most, if not all of the season. The timeline for Robert’s injury has varied multiple times, though the number of six weeks is something that has been said more than once. As for Jiménez, his ramp-up looks to be leading to a return within the next week. It is important to remember that the news and notes written above were based on the White Sox who are infamous for misleading injury proclamations and flat-out wrong decisions. If there was ever a team whose words needed to be taken with a grain of salt, it’s them.

Shane Bieber – SP Cleveland Guardians

And so begins the road to recovery. Bieber is wished well.

Walker Buehler – SP Los Angeles Dodgers

Buehler initially stayed in the game but was later removed for precautionary reasons. There should be more updates this weekend.
