Injury Report 4/5: Every Player’s DL Situation

Hello and welcome!

The report for today was not as daunting as Nick made it sounds on a recent episode of First Pitch – which you should be listening to daily if you’re not already. Nick does a brief rundown of new injuries before I get the chance to dive in, so First Pitch should be your first place to go for new information. As well, the community Slack channel is a ton of fun and I try to provide information there whenever prompted to look into joining us in there!

We had some big names leave the table this week. Josh Donaldson learned to throw again Marcell Ozuna hit a ball to the moon so I feel they’re both up to speed. Joining them in leaving the report are Ian Desmond, Victor Reyes, Mitch Garver, Brandon Nimmo, and Adam Warren.

For the first time, we have more updates available than newbies to the report! Let’s dive in!

UPDATES

Steven Souza Jr. (OF, Arizona Diamondbacks) – Souza Jr. has begun hitting in the cage and has been ramping up his throwing program. He could beat his timetable by a week or two if he keeps this up.

Johan Camargo (3B, Atlanta Braves) – Camargo is beginning a minor league rehab assignment on 4-5-18 and could rejoin the club this weekend or the beginning of next week.

Kurt Suzuki – C, Atlanta Braves) – MRI came back negative. The Braves apparently expect Suzuki to return to a full workload shortly as they DFA’d Chris Stewart. Hopefully, he is able to see some game action this weekend.

Luiz Gohara (SP, Atlanta Braves) – Gohara threw two innings in a simulated game with no ankle discomfort. Look for him to build that workload up as he approaches a minor league rehab assignment.

Drew Pomeranz (SP, Boston Red Sox) – Pomeranz has thrown 5 innings in a minor league game and could join the Red Sox staff shortly. He currently lines up for a 4-7-18 or 4-12-18 debut. I’m leaning toward 4-12-18.

Eduardo Rodriguez (SP, Boston Red Sox) – Rodriguez threw in a minor league game on 4-3-18 and is apparently very close. He may debut as early as 4-8-18, and he’ll be present for the Sox series this weekend. Rodriguez could be a potentially powerful Sunday streamer if that’s the case (vs. TB). Depends on if you feel like risking the DLH.

Brandon Finnegan (SP, Cincinnati Reds)  – Threw approximately 80 pitches in a simulated game on 4-4-18. Potentially available for the Reds game on 4-9-18, though 4-14-18 may be more realistic.

Michael Lorenzen (RP, Cincinnati Reds) – Not throwing as of 4-3-18. Scheduled to see his doctor on 4-4-18, so he may get the all-clear to begin a throwing program shortly.

Michael Brantley (OF, Cleveland Indians) – Francona has stated that Brantley will likely be activated on Friday, 4-6-18.

Mike Fiers (SP, Detroit Tigers) – Fiers fired 83 pitches over six innings in a minor league start, and may join the Detroit rotation this weekend.

Yuli Gurriel (1B, Houston Astros)  – Gurriel was moved to the DL10 in order to get minor league reps prior to making his season debut. No setback occurred. He is expected to come off the DL when first eligible on 4-13-18.

Nate Karns (SP, Kansas City Royals) – Karns was slated to return when first eligible on 4-7-18 but he has recently felt his elbow act up again. We’re on standby until new information is available, but I wouldn’t plan to have it on your squad this weekend.

Andrew Heaney (SP, Los Angeles Angels)  – Heaney is slated to throw 80-90 pitches in a rehab game on Friday, and may be ready to return after that. He will line up with the 4-12-18 game against TEX if all goes well.

Tom Koehler (SP, Los Angeles Dodgers) – Moved to the DL60. Current estimated return of 6-1-18 is set for when he is first eligible to come off the DL – this obviously could change drastically in the next two months.

Justin Turner (3B, Los Angeles Dodgers) – Turner will reportedly begin swinging a bat next week. He remains on course for a mid-May return.

J.T. Realmuto (C, Miami Marlins) – Has begun catching drills. Some reports list 4-20-18 as a possible return. I will update the timetable as we get closer to that date.

Michael Conforto (OF, New York Mets) – Conforto is set to be activated from the DL prior to today’s game(4-5-18). Those who gambled on him should gain great profit from his ADP.

Wil Myers (1B/OF, San Diego Padres)  – Myers was put on the DL10 due to a nerve irritation in his right triceps. Triceps is innervated by radial nerve, so I’m assuming that is the issue until we hear otherwise. It’s difficult to discern if the muscle is mentioned here as being irritated or as a landmark for the odd sensation. If it’s the latter, we’re most likely talking ulnar nerve, which could lead to a long absence if not resolved (ulnar nerve transposition surgery). I’d keep a close eye on this one.

Nelson Cruz (DH, Seattle Mariners) – No MRI results reported – no news is good news. I’m presuming that no structural damage was noted and the Mariner’s decided to put Cruz on the DL to give him ample rest and to allow them a roster spot for their incoming interleague series (which makes sense considering they retro’d to 4-1-18). Expect him to return when first eligible on 4-11-18 unless we hear otherwise.

Mike Zunino (C, Seattle Mariners) – Expect Zunino to return this weekend or early next week.

Adam Wainwright (SP, St. Louis Cardinals)  – Waino will take the ball later today, and we lose Jack Flaherty for the time being.

Martin Perez (SP, Texas Rangers) – Perez says he’s ready to go after a 6 inning outing in a simulated game on 4-1-18. He could return prior to the initial 4-15-18 estimate.

ADDITIONS

Nick Ahmed (SS, Arizona Diamondbacks)  – Could be back as early as 4-5-18 depending how he’s feeling. ARI infield depth has already taken a hit with Lamb heading for the DL.

Jake Lamb (3B, Arizona Diamondbacks)  – It helps that this is his non-throwing shoulder and his back shoulder while hitting. I’ve set the approximate return at 3 weeks until we obtain more information.

Josh Ravin (RP, Atlanta Braves) – With little information available I’ve thrown out a modest 2 w timetable. It’s difficult to know if this truly warranted a DL stay or if ATL just didn’t want to be short a reliever for an upcoming Teheran start (good call).

Scott Schebler (OF, Cincinnati Reds)  – I watched this one happen immediately after I picked up Schebler off waivers. Basically he took a 95 mph Sean Doolittle fastball off his right funny bone. He could do little to get out of the way, but perhaps add an EvoShield, Scott.

Lucas Duda (1B, Kansas City Royals) – Duda is dealing with some hamstring tightness that appears mild. I’d expect him back on Friday.

Matt Shoemaker (SP, Los Angeles Angels) – Uh oh. I’m starting him on a 3-4 week timetable but this could escalate quickly depending on imaging. Shoemaker missed significant time last year due to a strained extensor in his right forearm which eventually required a radial nerve release. I haven’t been able to find reports indicating whether it’s a flexor or extensor issue this time around. I have him on my DL in the staff league for the moment, but I won’t hesitate to drop him if any additional negative reports come out.

Ben Heller (RP, New York Yankees)  – Heller will likely undergo an operation to have the bone spurs removed. The timetable will be effective from that date. I wouldn’t expect him to contribute until after the ASB.

Joe Musgrove (SP/RP, Pittsburgh Pirates)  – Well, I was worried about this. Musgrove endured a similar shoulder issue last season. He’ll be shut down from throwing for about a week. We’ll begin to get a better idea of his timetable then.

Austin Hedges (C, San Diego Padres) – Hedges is in the lineup on 4-4-18, but this is still worth monitoring as it can’t be fun to catch with a sore upper back. I’d expect him to get a day or two of rest prior to the start of next week.

Hunter Pence (OF, San Francisco Giants) – Bochy expects Pence in the lineup on Friday, so we’ll go with that until we hear otherwise. In the meantime, enjoy this classic.

Jedd Gyorko (INF, St. Louis Cardinals) – This appears mild as the Cards weren’t initially sure if they wanted to DL Gyorko. He missed approximately two weeks with a hamstring strain last year, so I’ve gone with a similar timetable until we hear how his rehab is going.

Aledmys Diaz (SS, Toronto Blue Jays) – Appears very mild as Diaz reportedly took BP today. The Jays are off on 4-5-18 but we could see Diaz in the lineup on 4-6-18. He will likely be on the bench for Stroman’s start on 4-7-18 anyway as the Jays seem to prefer Ngoepe at SS with Stro on the hill.

Matt Wieters (C, Washington Nationals)  – Reportedly mild, so Wieters may return when first eligible.
