MLB Injury Report for Saturday, March 11

Trevor Story – 2B/SS Boston Red Sox

A very interesting point was made there by manager Alex Cora. If Trevor Story wasn’t going to play this year why get out there and field those ground balls? Story himself said that it was a necessary mental health break for him to do this in order to not just feel like a rehabber. The rest of the included article goes over his daily routine and is worth a read.

Aaron Bummer – RP, Chicago White Sox

Great news that he is progressing here, but it’s important to see how his body feels afterward. If it responds well, he could be back from his lat tightness around the time of Opening Day.

Joey Votto – 1B, Cincinnati Reds

While this is nice to see, there’s no guarantee that he will be ready anytime soon. After rotator cuff surgery at such an old baseball age, chances are that Votto will miss significant time this season.

Nick Senzel – OF, Cincinnati Reds

Great news as Senzel will be looking to start the season playing baseball and not on the Injured List. That said, given his injury history, all excitement should be tempered.

Charlie Blackmon – OF, Colorado Rockies

The severity of this injury is unknown, but it would seem that the elder statesman of the team will miss some time before coming back. More updates should be available soon.

Detroit Tigers Medical Update


A very informative graphic here detailing the major injuries that the team is suffering. Of note, Matt Vierling’s injury seems minor due to the fact that he will be undergoing baseball activities this weekend. It’s great that both Casey Mize and Tarik Skubal are playing catch multiple times a week, but they both seem far from in-game action.

Yordan Alvarez – OF, Houston Astros

Good to see Yordan Alvarez hitting without any issues. The next step will be with regular pitching and not soft-tossed throws. Still, a positive, albeit slow first step.

Michael Brantley – OF, Houston Astros

Here’s hoping that the family issue ends up well for him and that he can concentrate on getting better as quickly as possible.

Tony Gonsolin – SP, Los Angeles Dodgers

Gonsolin suffered the sprain earlier in the week during a team drill. He had x-rays done, but there was no fracture. The team took things slow with Gonsolin last year for a different reason, but seems to be doing so again now.

Garrett Mitchell – OF, Milwaukee Brewers

Fantastic news, as Mitchell should be back in games sooner than expected.

James Kaprielian – SP, Oakland Athletics

James Kaprielian did well earlier in the week during a simulated game. He felt no issues in his ailing shoulder afterward and looks to be ramping up for the season now.

Andrew Painter – SP, Philadelphia Phillies

Rest is what’s needed for Painter as it is believed that doing so will help the healing process. He apparently spoke with teammate Aaron Nola who advised him to be upfront and honest with the team, since he (Nola) went through this many years ago. The Phillies would be wise to take things slowly with their prized prospect.

Ranger Suarez – SP, Philadelphia Phillies

Playing in the WBC, Suarez himself wanted to get this checked out in case of anything major. As of now, it is not believed to be of a serious nature, but updates should clarify that in the coming days.

Drew Pomeranz – RP, San Diego Padres

Pomeranz has taken considerable time off since suffering a flexor tendon injury in his throwing arm. Advancing to live batting practice is a big next step toward a return.

Mitch Haniger – OF, San Francisco Giants

Unfortunately, this is something to monitor for two reasons. First, oblique injuries are tricky and can linger. Second, Haniger hasn’t had the best track record for health. More updates should follow.

Yandy Diaz – 3B, Tampa Bay Rays

Great news after an unfortunate HBP on Yandy’s hand. He’s likely DTD now.

Mitch White – SP/RP, Toronto Blue Jays

Mitch White will likely need to do this again before attempting to pitch in a game this spring. He is vying for a spot in the team’s rotation, though he could be a multi-inning reliever as well.

Alejandro Kirk – C, Toronto Blue Jays

Great news as Kirk looks to prepare himself for the season. He was gone from the team while awaiting the birth of his child.

Victor Robles – OF, Washington Nationals

A big relief that Robles is only DTD with a bruise and nothing more. No word on exactly when he’ll return.
