MLB Injury Report

Gabriel Moreno – C Arizona Diamondbacks

Congratulations to the Moreno family. He will likely miss another day or two before returning.

Michael Soroka – SP Atlanta Braves

Soroka’s season is over, but it’s reported that he won’t require surgery to fix his ailing forearm.

Felix Bautista – RP Baltimore Orioles

The injury is a partial tear in his UCL. As a result, Tommy John Surgery likely isn’t the only answer to the problem here. He could have other procedures in order to fix his elbow. He has thrown and will continue to throw in order to work himself out of it. The team has called this a conservative approach to the situation. There is a chance that he throws again for the Orioles. However, in order for that to happen, he will need to progress from just playing catch and begin to stretch out without interruption. The immediate future will be telling if he can in fact return.

Adbert Alzolay – RP Chicago Cubs

This is a brutal blow to the Cubs and to fantasy owners everywhere. He has apparently been dealing with this issue for quite some time. There has been no indication as of yet for what comes next, but surgery is an option here. Stay tuned as the Cubs will probably give some more details as to the future of Alzolay very soon.

Shane Bieber – SP Cleveland Guardians

It has been reported that Bieber will attempt to throw 55 pitches in this outing, which would be a tremendous start to his road back. The team has also said that he could return to Cleveland in about ten days. While this isn’t set in stone, it does show that they have a plan for him and how important these first two rehab starts are.

Shohei Ohtani – SP/UT Los Angeles Angels

Ohtani was originally inserted into the lineup but then immediately taken out of it. He took some batting practice swings but didn’t feel quite right. It does sound like he’s close.

Sandy Alcantara – SP Miami Marlins, Jorge Soler – OF Miami Marlins

There is no timeline yet for a return from Alcantara, and time is running out on the regular season. He last pitched on September 3 and that might be it for him this year. As for Soler, he is eligible to return in a few days, and this hitting progression looks like it will help him get there. He may need to miss a day or two extra if things don’t go smoothly.

Christian Yelich – OF Milwaukee Brewers

The good news here is that the time doesn’t seem overly concerned with Yelich’s health. They believe that he will be able to return soon enough and that his progress is fine. The bad news here is that this is during the stretch run of the fantasy baseball season, and anytime away makes decisions tough to make. Hopefully, he will be back by Wednesday.

Francisco Alvarez – C New York Mets

From the sounds of things, Alvarez will be back soon enough, possibly today.

Oswald Peraza – INF New York Yankees

Consider Peraza DTD for now, as he should be back within the coming days.

Ross Stripling – RP/SP San Francsico Giants

It sounds like Stripling could return soon, and that he will have a chip on his shoulder. He seems unhappy with himself and could work to fix that heading into next season.

Jose Siri – OF Tampa Bay Rays

The hope is that Siri will only miss a few weeks, but it’s likely that his regular season is all but over. He may return for the final week, but chances are the team will play things cautiously with him as they head toward the playoffs.

Matt Chapman – 3B Toronto Blue Jays

It looks like this will be something that Chapman will have to live to work through for the rest of the season.
