Marcell Ozuna – OF Atlanta Braves

As stated, this is great news, all things considered. With last night’s game postponed due to rain, Ozuna may not miss any time after all.

Ryan Mountcastle – 1B Baltimore Orioles

This explains why Mountcastle hasn’t played in quite a while and why he’ll need more time now. With a date retroactive to June 10th, he should be back shortly if all goes well now.

Adalberto Mondesi – SS Boston Red Sox

Words can’t express the disappointment level here. Mondesi is unlikely to play much at all this year, as he just can’t get over last year’s huge injury. Anyone rostering him should drop him in all formats.

Ian Happ – OF Chicago Cubs

Consider Happ DTD until we hear otherwise.

Chicago Cubs – Team Update

A lot to unpack here. This is the third IL-stint for Hughes this season, and all have been left-knee related. He may need additional time to get things right. Bellinger went hitless in three at-bats with one strikeout. The hope is that he returns to the Cubs within a week. Boxberger will be brought back slowly after an injury scare about a month ago. Steele may not need a rehab assignment and is on track to return this weekend.

Liam Hendriks – RP Chicago White Sox

Hendriks is hopeful to return before the All-Star Break, and these shots will undoubtedly help that cause. He will likely be shut down for a while so that these shots can settle in and do their thing.

Eloy Jimenez – OF Chicago White Sox

Nobody is sure what ‘somewhat available’ means except the White Sox, who use their own language when diagnosing their players. Looking to get Jimenez into the lineup is a run-around way of saying that maybe he will be here, but it depends on him. White Sox fans must be fed up with this ridiculous jargon as the team is quite familiar with it.

Andres Gimenez – 2B Cleveland Guardians

We shall see if those expectations come to fruition later today. For now, consider Gimeenz DTD.

Alex Faedo – SP Detroit Tigers, Eduardo Rodriguez – SP Detroit Tigers

Both Faedo and Rodriguez are on tenuous timetables. Faedo should be back before Rodriguez, but it’s unclear as to what role he will have due to the other pitchers who will be returning.

Tarik Skubal – SP Detroit Tigers

This is a bug jump for Skubal, and he remains an option to return before we hit July.

Jose Urquidy – SP Houston Astros

Urquidy started a throwing program last week and is ready to advance to mound work. Good news here.

Jeremy Pena – SS Houston Astros

Pena seems to be on the mend, but he may not be ready for another day or two. Stay tuned.

Max Muncy – INF Los Angeles Dodgers

More will be known after the MRI, but Muncy will miss some time here. A trip to the Injured List is possible. Stay tuned, but keep him out of lineups today.

Trevor Rogers – SP Miami Marlins

Ugh, this isn’t good. It’s unclear as to how much time will be missed, but Rogers will now miss at least one more week. Stay tuned as we need to find out more about what happened with his non-throwing shoulder and what happens next.

Jazz Chisholm Jr. – 2B/OF Miami Marlins

This is a good news/bad news situation. Chisholm Jr. will need surgery after the season to repair his turf toe. However, he is planning on returning and playing now. Will his play be compromised? Will his return be delayed even longer? Will they limit his time in the field? So many questions.

Wade Miley – SP Milwaukee Brewers

Be prepared.

Kenta Maeda – SP Minnesota Twins

This could be his final game before coming back to Minnesota. That final sentence is the intriguing one as he has looked good while rehabbing. Keep him on your radars.

Byron Buxton – UT Minnesota Twins

Buxton was eligible to come back yesterday, but he’ll need a few more days as his pain continues to dwindle. Especially considering where he was hit, swinging a bat would be tough with any pain.

Pete Alonso – 1B New York Mets

This is good news that Alonso could do field work while recovering. He still has a ways to go though before returning.

Jose Quintana – SP New York Mets

This was a good first step for Quintana. It’s been said that he’ll need to be stretched out to five innings before returning.

Harrison Bader – OF New York Yankees

Be prepared.

Aaron Judge – OF New York Yankees

The team has said that they will offer a timeline at some point this week. While things seem to be getting better for Judge, he himself doesn’t seem to know when he’ll return. He has said that every day is better and better, so there’s that.

J.D. Davis – 3B San Francisco Giants

It’s unclear if Davis will need a trip to the Injured List. The above play looked ugly though. David Vilar and/or Luis Matos will be on the roster soon to help this and another major injury.

Mitch Haniger – OF San Francisco Giants

Haniger looked to be in a lot of pain, and this is why. It’s unclear how long he will be gone, but it will likely be a while. Look for Luis Matos to take over this spot and get the call. He’s worth an add.

Lars Nootbar – OF St. Louis Cardinals

Great news for Nootbar, who has been out for quite a while. Fingers crossed.

Toronto Blue Jays – Team Update

Belt will miss some time, despite him seemingly getting better recently. It’s unclear if this will be more than the ten-day minimum for him. As for Jansen, he was raking in the minors so his return isn’t a surprise.
