MLB Injury Report for March 7

Justin Turner – 3B Boston Red Sox

After being hit in the face with a Matt Manning pitch, Justin Turner has been receiving medical treatment at a local hospital. He will continue to be evaluated for any and all injuries. It was a nasty accident, and above anything else, the world hopes for his safe return to the game.

Adalberto Mondesi – SS Boston Red Sox

Adalberto Mondesi underwent some follow-up testing yesterday to see how far along he is in his recovery. With the season approaching soon, the team wants and needs to assess all of its options. This will help them figure out exactly where they are with the talented shortstop. Expect an update later today.

James Paxton – SP Boston Red Sox, Connor Wong – C Boston Red Sox

Updates on both injured Boston players, whose status for Opening Day is in jeopardy. While it’s encouraging to see them further along than expected, time is running out before decisions need to be made.

Yordan Alvarez – OF Houston Astros

Some encouraging news on the consensus first-round pick of Yordan Alvarez. If this is the case and he does start swinging over the weekend, he will have a shortened Spring in which to prepare. It’s unclear if this will alter his early season numbers. That said, having him back soon is good news for everyone involved.

Jose Quintana – SP New York Mets

This seems eerily similar to the Chris Sale situation last year, which caused him to miss time until July. That said, there’s been no indication that this is the same exact issue since this fracture is a small one. Still, one has to assume that Quintana will miss some time to begin the season as he’ll need to ramp up his pitch count. In the meantime, David Peterson remains a viable option for the team.

Oswald Peraza – SS New York Yankees

This looks to be a precautionary measure as he seems poised to return within the week. Something to monitor, but (for now) nothing to fret about.

Andrew Painter – SP Philadelphia Phillies

An interesting note here as the team assesses what to do about their rotation. This is the first substantial update that’s been seen regarding Painter, but it’s by no means the final word. It wouldn’t be surprising if he doesn’t pitch for quite a while in order to make sure he can do it injury-free.

Andrew McCutchen – OF Pittsburgh Pirates

Andrew McCutchen was removed from a game yesterday after getting hit by a pitch on the hand. Lucky for everyone involved, that decision was merely precautionary and his hand is okay.

Joe Musgrove – SP San Diego Padres

Joe Musgrove has been using a hyperbolic chamber in order to try and shorten the length of his injury timeline. In doing this, it is hoped and believed that his body would create stem cells that would help the healing process. He has also been on a strict diet that is designed to help the body recover. Fantasy owners everywhere should still stick with the original timeline, but not be surprised if something comes of this. This is merely a note of how he’s working hard to get back.

Juan Soto – OF San Diego Padres

Great news out of San Diego, as superstar Juan Soto appears to be ready to get back onto the field. It’s been noted too that if this were the regular season, he’d be playing by now.

Leody Tavares – OF Texas Rangers, Jake Odorizzi – SP Texas Rangers, Jon Gray – SP Texas Rangers, Jose LeClerc – RP Texas Rangers

Leody Tavares was removed from playing after experiencing discomfort in his left side and it’s hopeful that this is nothing serious. Expect more updates today. As for the pitching trio, all of them threw bullpen sessions as they work to get back into the lineup for the Rangers.
