MLB Injury Report

Ryan Mountcastle – 1B Baltimore Orioles

Mountcastle left the game last night with what was labeled as shoulder discomfort. It was later revealed that he heard his shoulder pop. Today’s imaging will decide the extent of his injury and the steps that the team should take. Ryan O’Hearn should take over at first base, though Heston Kjerstad was pulled from his minor league game last night and could be a replacement.

Kenley Jansen – RP Boston Red Sox

This might help explain Jansen’s absence as of late and his declining performance. He is wished well while he is gone.

Garrett Crochet – RP Chicago White Sox

Crochet continues to trend upward, though it remains to be seen if he’ll be back before the end of the season. During his three games at both levels, he has seven strikeouts and one walk over three innings of work.

Triston McKenzie – SP Cleveland Guardians

McKenzie, much like Bieber the other day, looked sharp in his first game back. It remains to be seen if he will return to the Guardians this season, but he may get one or two outings in before it’s all said and done.

Daniel Hudson – RP Los Angeles Dodgers

Hudson is running out of time, and any return might be for peace of mind over anything else.

Jazz Chisholm – 2B/OF Miami Marlins

Chisholm himself said that this came out of nowhere and that his knee hadn’t been hurting before. He didn’t seem concerned and expects to come in today and pinch-hit if necessary. While it’s encouraging to hear that, the medical professionals would be the ones whose opinion matters most. Either way, stay tuned.

Sandy Alcantara – SP Miami Marlins

From the sounds of it, the team would be wise to keep Alcantara out for the remainder of the season. Anything done too quickly could jeopardize the long-term future of him and his arm. That said, he is eligible to return this Tuesday and the team is in the midst of a playoff hunt.

Christian Yelich – OF Milwaukee Brewers

This is the fourth game in a row that Yelich has missed without being placed on the Injured List. With him considered as a pinch-hitter last night, perhaps the return is near. Either way, a decision needs to be made soon about him and this injury.

Minnesota Twins – Team Update

A lot to unpack here. First, Michael Taylor will be back soon, and the team could use his defensive skills in the outfield. As for Jose Miranda, his season is officially over as he could never get his shoulder quite right. There’s no word on his placement for the team next year. Joey Gallo will hopefully return to the Twins for a handful of games before the team heads to the playoffs. Finally, the news on Paddack is encouraging, as there’s a chance we see him pitch for the Twins before the season’s end.

Brett Baty – 3B New York Mets

There’s a chance that the Mets shut him down for the season and work on getting him right for 2024.

Ronny Mauricio – SS New York Mets

Look for Mauricio to return once he’s healthy and get some at-bats while he develops.

Starling Marte – OF New York Mets

It would be a feel-good moment for Marte if he could return before the end of the season. By being healthy, he could always be a trade piece for the Mets in the offseason.

Joe Musgrove – SP San Diego Padres

From the sounds of it, Musgrove will be shut down at some point soon. The team did the same with Yu Darvish, and it makes sense to continue that trend. Musgrove himself doesn’t seem able to take a big leap forward and extend himself to do more; this is fair, as nobody wants a long-term injury, especially with the team not competing for a playoff run.

Michael Conforto – OF San Francisco Giants

Be prepared.

Jarred Kelenic – OF Seattle Mariners

Kelenic fouled a ball off of his foot on Monday, but the good news is that it wasn’t his previously injured foot. The hope is that he can return on the weekend.

Dylan Carlson – OF St. Louis Cardinals

The writing was on the wall for a while, so this should come as no surprise. Carlson will look to be ready for next season.

Nolan Gorman – 2B St. Louis Cardinals

The team hopes that this won’t end his season, but there’s a legitimate shot that it does.
