MLB Injury Report – Guardians get good news

Welcome to the Fantrax MLB Injury Report for Tuesday, May 28, 2024. In today’s edition, Memorial Day seemed to go by without anything major happening… which, for this article, is a good thing. Still, some important events happened, such as Rhys Hoskins hitting on the field, Chris Bassitt pitching through a neck spasm and both Steven Kwan and Gavin Williams receiving some good news. All this and more in today’s Injury Report from Fantrax.

MLB Injury Report for Tuesday, May 28, 2024.

Steven Kwan – OF Cleveland Guardians (hamstring), Gavin Williams – SP Cleveland Guardians (elbow)

Kwan has already begun his rehab assignment. He has one home run in seven at-bats for the High-A County Lake Captains and will move his work over to Triple-A Columbus. He will continue to play left field, which shows that the hamstring is seemingly all but healed. As for Williams, he has faced live batters and appears ready to test out his elbow in a rehab assignment. There has been no word on the length of this trip, but it will likely be somewhat lengthy as he has yet to appear in a game all season.

Rhys Hoskins – 1B Milwaukee Brewers (hamstring)

This was a big day for Hoskins, as it was the first time he would have done something as big as this since he went to the Injured List. Keep an eye on the fallout from this, because if he feels good physically, there’s a chance that a rehab assignment isn’t too far behind.

Miami Marlins – Team Update

A lot to unpack here with some fantasy relevance. Edward Cabrera (shoulder) is building himself back up after a brief shutdown almost two weeks ago. His return is on hold, as this was his second time on the Injured List for a shoulder injury, and the team will likely take things slowly with him. As for Avisali Garcia (hamstring), his rehab assignment will likely be long in nature as he has only played in nine games since April 10.

Cristian Javier – SP Houston Astros (forearm), Jose Urquidy – SP Houston Astros (forearm)

Both Javier and Urquidy will have an MRI done this week to determine the severity of the situation. Both are separately needed by the Astros who are running thin on starting pitchers.

LaMonte Wade Jr. – OF San Francisco Giants (hamstring)

During the game, Wade looked as if he was grabbing at his knee, but it would appear that it was his hamstring that was giving him problems after all. This is somewhat concerning since he has been ailing from a hamstring injury for the better part of this past week. He will have an MRI later on today to determine the severity of this situation. A trip to the Injured List is quite possible.

TJ Friedl – OF Cincinnati Reds (thumb)

The injury to Friedl’s thumb looks to be rounding its way out, and he may be able to finally make his glorious return. From the sounds of it, he may not need a rehab assignment. Be prepared.

Chris Bassitt – SP Toronto Blue Jays (neck)

We should find out more about Bassitt and his neck in the coming days. The Blue Jays will have a decision to make regarding his next start later in the week, which may have to either be pushed back or relieved by someone healthy.

Jorge Polanco – 2B Seattle Mariners (hamstring), Gregory Santos – RP Seattle Mariners (lat)

This is potentially good news since Polando has missed so much time over the last few years due to injury. He’s been productive when healthy but has had difficulty maintaining that level of well-being. All that being said, things may change once he has the MRI. As for Santos, he is being moved to Seattle to continue his recovery, but the team has been on record as slow-playing his return.

Lars Nootbaar – OF St. Louis Cardinals (hamstring)

This is great news, as Nootbaar has had trouble staying on the field throughout his short career. The hope here is that he can get back onto the field soon enough.
