UPDATES

Ronald Acuna Jr. (OF, Atlanta Braves) – It seems initial expectations for Acuna were too optimistic, as he’s not begun hitting off a tee yet. This seems a stark contrast to hearing he was running days after his injury. I’ve pushed his ETA back about a week – we will see how he progresses.

Mookie Betts (OF, Boston Red Sox) – Betts is doing well, but I pushed him back a day or two as he reportedly wants to go on a rehab assignment to regain his timing. The Red Sox have no reason to rush their star player.

Daniel Gossett (SP, Oakland Athletics) – Gossett is dealing with a flexor strain in his right forearm, and will likely be sidelined for more than a month.

Matt Joyce (OF, Oakland Athletics) – Joyce also hit the DL, and will undergo an MRI on his back which will give us a better idea of how long he will be on the shelf.

ADDITIONS

Julio Teheran (SP, Atlanta Braves) – Teheran suffered a thumb contusion during an at-bat on Monday. X-rays came back negative. I can’t anticipate a contusion keeping him out for more than a minimum stay, but it is his throwing hand so we’ll need to see how long he is shut down.

Drew Pomeranz (SP Boston Red Sox) – Pomeranz has been experiencing some biceps tendinitis – the same ailment that kept Kershaw out for about 25 days earlier this year. I’ve listed Pomeranz estimated return at about 3 weeks, but that is without having an understanding of the severity.

Jeimer Candelario (3B, Detroit Tigers) – Candelario jammed his finger when fielding on Tuesday. X-rays came back negative, and he should return within a day or two. He is reportedly an option off the bench on Wednesday night.

Andrelton Simmons (SS, Los Angeles Angels) – Simmons is hoping for the minimum here, but I think he might spend a bit of extra time on the DL just due to the sprain being diagnosed as Grade 2.

Albert Pujols (1B, Los Angeles Angels) – Pujols has been sidelined due to knee soreness but appears to be on track to return on Friday.

Logan Morrison (1B, Minnesota Twins) – Lomo was a bench option on Wednesday night, so he will likely return prior to the weekend.

Jordy Mercer(SS, Pittsburgh Pirates) – Mercer should be back in the lineup prior to the weekend.
