MLB Injury Report – From Woo Hoo to Womp Womp

Here is the Fantrax MLB Injury Report for Saturday, May 11, 2024. In today’s edition, Bryan Woo made his triumphant debut last night, only to leave the game early due to forearm tightness.

All of that and so much more in today’s Injury Report from Fantrax.

MLB Injury Report for Saturday, May 11, 2024.

Bryan Woo – SP Seattle Mariners (forearm)

Woo made his 2024 debut last night and held his own for the most part. It was after the fourth inning that things fell apart. The Mariners scored five runs in the bottom of the fourth inning, giving Woo a lot of time to sit and watch. From here, he felt the tightness after a long layover. In fact, his fastball sat at under 90 mph, which was what prompted the trainers to come out and take a look. While both he and manager Scott Servais aren’t worried, it is something to monitor going forward. It is unclear as to whether or not this will lead to a trip to the Injured List, but it’s worth noting that the opinions on game day are not always correct.

Matt Brash – RP Seattle Mariners (Tommy John Surgery)

The saga of Brash’s injuries to start the year is now over. What begins now is his recovery process with the hope of him returning in about one year. Keep in mind that relief pitchers have a shorter Tommy John timetable than starters due to fewer workload concerns and stress.

Gregory Santos – RP Seattle Mariners (lat)

The great news here is that there is an estimated timeline for Santos’ return. We shall see if this will actually be the case as he’s had some setbacks thus far.

Dansby Swanson – SS Chicago Cubs (knee)

While the Cubs will welcome back Suzuki with open arms, they will unfortunately have to say goodbye to Swanson for a while. After sliding awkwardly earlier this week, he just wasn’t ready to get back into the lineup and the decision was made to give him some time away. Things were getting worse and he needed time off.

Jameson Taillon – SP Chicago Cubs (back)

There’s a legitimate chance that Taillon does not pitch this weekend and ends up back on the Injured List.

Masataka Yoshida – OF Boston Red Sox (thumb)

It’s somewhat rare to get a second opinion on an injury, but Yoshida went above and beyond to get a third opinion on his injured thumb. As a result, he won’t need surgery and will let the injury heal itself. He cannot swing a bat and will likely need to wait weeks in order for that to happen. As for a timeline, that is unknown currently, but perhaps he’ll seek out multiple opinions on that as well.

George Springer – OF Toronto Blue Jays (illness)

Both Springer and teammate Kevin Kiermaier are under the weather and did not play last night. It remains to be seen if they will return today, but it’s worth noting that there have been some recent trips to the Injured List due to illnesses this season.

Devin Williams – RP Milwaukee Brewers (back)

Williams playing catch is a great sign toward a potential return. However, we will know more after the check-up this week. Stay tuned.

Pete Fairbanks – RP Tampa Bay Rays (arm)

Be prepared.

Brandon Lowe – 2B Tampa Bay Rays (oblique)

There wasn’t much on this removal other than that it was for precautionary reasons. Stay tuned.

Evan Phillips – RP Los Angeles Dodgers (hamstring)

This is a quick turnaround from having an injured hamstring that required rest with time off. There’s a chance that Phillips returns when first eligible. There’s also a chance that if he does, he may be back too soon.

Joe Musgrove – SP San Diego Padres (elbow)

While it’s encouraging to hear about how everything looks good and that Musgrove himself expects to return when eligible, players have been wrong plenty of times in their own misdiagnoses. That being said, he is eligible to return on Friday and we won’t have to wait for long to find out if he’s right or wrong.
