MLB Injury Report for Monday, April 15, 2024

Bobby Miller – SP Los Angeles Dodgers

Miller was sent to the Injured List over the weekend with a shoulder injury. The news seemed devastating, but a day after that, rumors circulated that it was;t as serious as first expected. While all shoulder injuries shouldn’t be taken lightly, it is a good sign that the team sees this as a minor setback. Still, he is one of their prized possessions and will likely be treated with kid gloves. Anything done differently, and they risk a significant injury.

Emmett Sheehan – SP Los Angeles Dodgers

Not good. Already down with a forearm injury, Sheehand will now be shut down from throwing. While we don’t know the specifics, hearing the manager say that this is a longer team situation is most definitely bad news. Stay tuned.

Walker Buehler – SP Los Angeles Dodgers

There was some concern about him after being hit on the hand by a comebacker in his last outing. It would appear that any worries there are gone.

Carlos Correa – SS Minnesota Twins

We should know more about Correa’s recovery process soon enough. In the meantime, it’s reassuring that the injury is not as major as was first expected. For what it’s worth, he said that he was already feeling tight and achy in his sides after a week of being sic and blowing his nose.

Toronto Blue Jays – Team Update

This is big news for the team and in fantasy. While Swanson and Jansen have minimal fantasy impact on themselves, their return should offer some stability for their surroundings. Swanson being able to hold a lead and Jansen helping the rotation call a game will make his teammates better. This is a win for everyone. Meanwhile, Romano should immediately be plunged into the closer’s role and hold the fort when the time is needed.

Gerrit Cole – SP New York Yankees

Cole has now played catch twice and has felt great after each session. Doing this on flat ground from 60 feet is the beginning part of his long journey back. While it’s encouraging to see this out of him, it’s important to remember that there are many hurdles yet to come.

DJ LeMahieu – INF New York Yankees

LeMahieu has missed the entire season with a fractured foot, and his return so soon is somewhat surprising, given the reports. Even still, it will be interesting to see how he looks in any rehab assignment.

Kris Bryant – 1B Colorado Rockies

Bryant missed Sunday’s game, but manager Bud Black doesn’t think that he will miss much time.

Kyle Bradish – SP Baltimore Orioles

Interesting development here. He has felt nothing out of the ordinary while throwing bullpens, so the decision has been made to let him try a rehab assignment. He will likely need at least three outings before debuting for the Orioles, but it’s not inconceivable to see him take the maximum time allotted in any rehab start.

Josh Lowe – OF Tampa Bay Rays

Before a rehab assignment is official, he will participate in two more extended Spring Training games. As noted here, he will need a long rehab process, as he didn’t have a Spring Training. That said, it seems like he is close to healthy and that whatever he does in a rehab outing will be to help him get his timing back.

Shane Baz – SP Tampa Bay Rays

While it’s good news that Baz feels good, this is his second oblique injury since having Tommy John Surgery. They don’t just go away instantly, but instead take their time for any sort of recovery. That said, it’s a step in the right direction here.

Salvador Perez – C Kansas City Royals

The hope is that with further evaluation, Perez can avoid the Injured List. Stay tuned.

Jake Burger – 3B Miami Marlins

Not much else is known, but we should find out soon enough. Consider Burger DTD until we know more.

Framber Valdez – SP Houston Astros

While this seems rather quick, it does go in line with the initial assessment where both Valdez and the team believed that this was a minor setback. We shall see, and the hope is that he doesn’t rush back and injure himself even further.

Justin Verlander – SP Houston Astros

Be prepared.

Paul Sewald – RP Arizona Diamondbacks

Sewald is in the beginning stages of throwing but continues to progress. He still has a ways to go, but any and all progress should be considered a positive sign.

Rafael Devers – 3B Boston Red Sox

Devers sat out all weekend, as manager Alex Cora didn’t want to push him forward and risk long-term injury. He said that if this were later in the season he would be able to play through what he’s feeling right now. While that does seem somewhat encouraging, it doesn’t take away from him being unavailable now. With a very early game today, perhaps the plan was to start getting him ready a day ahead. Either way, if he doesn’t play on Monday, it seems rather likely that he will head to the Injured List.

Jameson Taillon – SP Chicago Cubs, Justin Steele – SP Chicago Cubs

Taillon could be ready to make his debut this week after throwing 68 pitches. Meanwhile, this is the first real development in Steele’s recovery.
