MLB Injury Report: How Long is Corey Seager Out?

Welcome to the Fantrax MLB Injury Report for Thursday, June 6, 2024. In today’s edition, Corey Seager and Manny Machado both injured themselves by running toward first base. Both players could be fine to play as soon as their team’s next game, but that’s dependent on how they feel today. Additionally, Kenta Maeda injured himself after just two pitches and will likely miss some time. All of that and so much more is discussed here in today’s Injury Report from Fantrax.

MLB Injury Report for Thursday, June 6, 2024.

Corey Seager – SS Texas Rangers (hamstring)

Seager pulled up lame to first base while running, and was subsequently pulled from the game. The belief here is that the issue is minor, though it’s worth noting that he missed about a month of action last year with a similar issue in his left leg. He is injury-prone, so this belief by Bochy needs to be taken with a grain of salt, despite its encouraging undertone.

Manny Machado – 3B San Diego Padres (hip flexor strain)

It’s encouraging that there is a belief that Machado could play in today’s game against the Diamondbacks. Whether or not that happens is another story, as the team may take the safer route to give him time to recover.

Triston Casas – 1B Boston Red Sox (side)

This was a very encouraging interview here, as Casas is seemingly improving daily. A big step forward will be once he does start swinging a bat, but if all goes according to his plan, a return before the All-Star Break seems to be in play. That should be considered the best-case scenario, but a post-All-Star Break return is definitely doable. Stay tuned.

Kyle Tucker – OF Houston Astros (shin), Alex Bregman – 3B Houston Astros (hand)

From the sounds of it, both Tucker and Bregman should be back soon enough, though the weekend might be a possibility. The biggest takeaway though is that it would appear that both players will avoid the Injured List.

Blake Snell – SP San Francisco Giants (groin)

The fact that the team will be laying out a timeline for Snell could be an indication that he will need more than the fifteen-day minimum. Stay tuned.

Kenta Maeda – SP Detroit Tigers (abdominal)

Maeda left after two pitches and apparently felt discomfort after the first pitch thrown. He wanted to stay in the game, but the decision was made to pull him by the team. It has been a season of ineffectiveness coupled with a body that won’t allow him to do the things he is used to doing. Based on how poorly he has pitched all season, a move to the bullpen when healthy isn’t out of the question. For now, the team will need to decide if he is headed to the Injured List.

Starling Marte – OF New York Mets (knee)

This is an issue that has been bothering Marte for days, though it didn’t affect his performance. There is a chance that a day or two out of the lineup is all that he needs to feel better.

Edwin Diaz – RP New York Mets (shoulder)

The hope is that Diaz will require a handful of appearances before returning. That said, his performance here should be monitored to see if his pre-Injured List performance was injury-related or something else.

Kris Bryant – 1B Colorado Rockies (back)

The fact that Bryant will likely head to the Injured List is not surprising. Rather, it’s more of a shock that the team believes he will return within ten days of that designation.

Christopher Morel – OF Chicago Cubs (foot)

After fouling a ball off of his foot, it would appear that Morel will be okay moving forward.

Robert Gasser – SP Milwaukee Brewers (elbow), DL Hall – SP/RP Milwaukee Brewers (knee)

These are two crucial updates that are important to keep an eye on since both players are big pieces to the team’s future. While second opinions are usually a bad omen to a negative diagnosis, the belief here is that the one for Hall won’t be as bad as Gasser’s. Stay tuned.
