MLB Injury Report for March 5

Brayan Bello

Since his early scare, Bello has surpassed any hill that he has been challenged to climb. While he is behind where he should be, chances are that he won’t miss much time during the regular season.

James Paxton and Garrett Whitlock

The trio of players in the tweet itself looks likely to miss Opening Day. Paxton, for one, has a minor hamstring strain, which will be tested through imaging. Whitlock has been ramping back up slowly since his off-season surgery. The aforementioned Bello was behind a bit after an early forearm scare, but he seems on track to be 100% and back soon enough.

Justin Dunn

Justin Dunn continues to struggle to gain health, but he might be at the end of the road to recovery. Still, he will miss some time to start the season.

Ryan Yarbrough and Taylor Clarke

Yarbrough missed some time due to various ailments last year with Tampa Bay. This needs to be a non-serious injury for him to make it to Opening Day. As for Clarke, he experienced his soreness during a bullpen session earlier in the week.

Nick Gordon

Nick Gordon looks to be ready to return to action within the next seven to ten days.

Alex Kirilloff

Alex Kirilloff is progressing well with his wrist. He aims to be into game action soon and competing for a spot on the 26-man Opening Day roster.

Andrew Painter

The update on Andrew Painter’s elbow is that there is no update. Unfortunately, fans and fantasy owners everywhere will have to wait until later today or possibly even Monday.

Tommy La Stella

Tommy La Stella remains sidelined with a shoulder injury. He has played in only 136 games over the last two seasons.

Dylan Carlson

Dylan Carlson will not throw a baseball until Monday due to arm fatigue. This isn’t good news for him in that he is supposed to be competing for a spot in the outfield.

Jack Flaherty

Jack Flaherty’s start was pushed back due to flu-like symptoms. This is different than what was previously reported.

Jacob deGrom

After a successful bullpen session yesterday, Jacob deGrom will progress to facing live batters later this week.

Vladimir Guerrero Jr.

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. has withdrawn from the World Baseball Classic due to discomfort in his knee. The injury showed minor inflammation, but no structural damage. This is less of a pain issue and more of a discomfort issue.
