Fantrax MLB Injury Report for Friday, March 22, 2024

David Bednar – RP Pittsburgh Pirates

Since the genesis of the injury, both Bednar and the team have downplayed its significance. One day after this outing, it would appear that he should be ready for Opening Day or just after that. Additionally, previous reports support the notion that he will not need a trip to the Injured List.

Kenley Jansen – RP Boston Red Sox

Jansen also threw yesterday and looked good while doing so. He said afterward that he felt fantastic and ready to go. Ironically, he didn’t feel anywhere close to 100% until the day of this projected Spring Training outing. He should be ready to go on Opening Day and avoid the Injured List.

Matt Brash – RP Seattle Mariners

Brash has slowly been progressing since the initial scare earlier in camp. While he’s not out of the woods just yet, the next few days will be important for him. How he feels after this and the next session will be telling toward how long he will need to wait until he returns.

Gregory Santos – RP Seattle Mariners

Santos will miss the start of the year on the Injured List. This MRI will help determine the length of time that he will miss. We should know more by the end of the weekend.

Kodai Senga – SP New York Mets

This is great news as Senga can now begin to focus on his long ramp-up to being able to pitch. While a lot can happen in between now and his 2024 debut, it’s comforting to know that he can progress from being shut down to these tests. It’s important to note that this hasn’t necessarily sped up his timeline at all. He is still slated to miss significant time this season.

Sonny Gray – SP St. Louis Cardinals

Gray has done nothing but impress and progress since his initial injury a while back. For him to be back and miss the Injured List completely is quite an accomplishment. Things are looking good here.

Alec Manoah – SP Toronto Blue Jays, Danny Jansen – C Toronto Blue Jays

Manoah is slowly making his way back from a shoulder injury that has hampered him all spring. His pot in the rotation seems to have been taken by Bowden Francis, so there is no need to rush things here. As for Jansen, it looks as if he’s close to beginning physical activities after a wrist ailment a few weeks ago. That being said, Alejandro Kirk has looked good this spring and appears poised to possibly run away with the job, though Jansen is the better defensive player.

Los Angeles Angels – Team Update

Stephenson playing catch was a good sign for progression, though Carlos Estevez has etched himself in as the team’s closer. Rengifo and Schanuel both are aiming to be ready for Opening Day. While both have their questions and hurdles to clear before then, the Angels have by no means ruled out either of them from being ready.

Jonathan Aranda – UT Tampa Bay Rays

Aranda will miss time to begin the season, but the Rays are deep enough that they likely won’t miss a beat. The young and promising utility player will have to wait to make his impact in the majors until sometime in May or June if all goes right.

Eloy Jimenez – UT Chicago White Sox

Consider Jimenez DTD for now as he works through this minor ailment. That said, when it involves him, even the smallest of injuries can extend into longer times away. He is a candidate to play in the outfield at times this season as well.

Justin Verlander – SP Houston Astros

Verlander has been nothing but great since his early diagnosis in the spring. He continues to throw multiple times a week and is aiming for a return shortly after Opening Day. It seems like all that’s left is a ramp-up to be able to pitch a game’s worth of pitches.
