UPDATES

Yoan Moncada (2B, Chicago White Sox) – The White Sox have chosen to be safe which makes all the sense in the world. Moncada isn’t currently expected to require more than a minimum DL stay.

Miguel Cabrera (3B, Detroit Tigers) – Miggy experienced a hamstring strain of an unknown degree, though the Tigers don’t appear to expect him back quickly. We should have a more concrete update in the first half of this week.

Hyun-Jin Ryu (SP, Los Angeles Dodgers) – Ryu tore muscle from bone, which he will require surgery to repair. He is done for the first half of the year.

Stephen Vogt (C, Milwaukee Brewers) – Vogt has experienced yet another setback and was pulled off his rehab assignment. We’re essentially in a holding pattern.

Jacob deGrom (SP, New York Mets) – The Mets report that this DL stint is mainly precautionary and they expect deGrom to come off the DL as soon as he’s able on 5-13-18.

Steve Pearce (OF, Toronto Blue Jays) – Pearce has been diagnosed with an oblique strain of an unknown degree and will miss at least a few weeks.

 

ADDITIONS

Dansby Swanson (SS, Atlanta Braves) – Examination revealed Swanson has not incurred any structural damage to his left wrist. He may return when first eligible on 5-14-18.

Adam Jones (OF, Baltimore Orioles) – X-rays came back negative on Jones’ right wrist/hand. Current estimates have him returning to the lineup on Tuesday.

Mookie Betts (OF, Boston Red Sox) – Mookie Betts took an errant throw off his right shoulder. I don’t expect this to hold him out for long at all.

Bradley Zimmer (OF, Cleveland Indians) – Zimmer had a run in with a wall on Saturday, and is a little banged up. He is currently expected to return to the lineup on Tuesday.

Nick Goody (RP, Cleveland Indians) – Goody suffered a non-descript elbow injury during his appearance Thursday. The official DL move lists a ‘right elbow strain’, though I’ve also seen elbow hyperextension mentioned. I can’t find a particular event to tie this to, but I’m leaning away from the hyperextension conclusion. An MRI revealed no structural damage.

Jeimer Candelario (3B, Detroit Tigers) – Candelario injured his left thumb – it appears he just jammed it. Look for him to be DTD and return in the middle of this week barring any additional news.

Clayton Kershaw (SP, Los Angeles Dodgers) – Tendinitis is difficult to gauge as it depends on the extent of damage to the tendon the potential cause of the inflammation. The Dodgers don’t seem overly concerned, so I’m leaning towards this being a mild case – those typically resolve in 1-2 weeks. We’ll get a better sense when Kershaw is next scheduled to throw, but he may only miss a start or two.

Jason Castro (C, Minnesota Twins) – I anticipate Castro will undergo surgery to repair the meniscus in his right knee, though the current plan is to receive a cortisone shot and attempt to return when first able. The timetable for return from that surgery is approximately 6-10 weeks, and he may be on the latter end of that timetable as he’ll need to return to catching which is very demanding on the lower body.

Zach Davies (SP, Milwaukee Brewers) – Davies is only expected to miss one start, so this seems like a minor case of inflammation. If he sticks to that, he will return on May 10th at COL. No one wants that.

Yoenis Cespedes (OF, New York Mets) – This one seems odd as the Mets stated it was a hip injury while Cespedes has said it’s his quad. Cespedes doesn’t seem confident that he’ll return to the lineup for Monday. This may be one where we need to sit and watch what happens, but he’s DTD for now.

Jean Segura (SS, Seattle Mariners) – Segura left Sunday’s game due to a migraine. As we’ve seen with a few examples thus far this season, migraine’s aren’t always clear-cut. Presume Segura will be in the lineup on Tuesday until differential information is released.

Reyes Moronta (RP, San Francisco Giants) – Moronta dealt with some form of back injury during his most recent outing. He should return sometime this week.

Dominic Leone (RP, St. Louis Cardinals) – Difficult to say what’s going on here. Leone experienced a nerve irritation in his right upper arm during a bullpen. A couple of different nerves could have been irritated in a variety of ways and we haven’t been provided any information on what he’s truly experienced. Some reports also list this as a biceps cramp. Either way, it seems acute enough that a May return is likely.

Yadier Molina (C, St. Louis Cardinals) – Bruising is when small blood vessels burst due to pressure, a hematoma is when that blood leaks into nearby structures and clots. Molina underwent a procedure to remove a hematoma he incurred due to a foul tip. He is projected to miss about a month, which seems reasonable.

Bud Norris (RP, St. Louis Cardinals) – Nud Borris is experiencing some tightness in his right triceps and will miss a few days. He is expected to return to regular play in the middle of this week.

Tommy Pham (OF, St. Louis Cardinals) – Pham has been battling this groin injury for over a week now. He continues to be DTD until we hear otherwise.

Aledmys Diaz (SS, Toronto Blue Jays) – Diaz was removed from Sunday’s game due to an ankle sprain. X-rays came back negative, so we’ve ruled out any concurrent fractures. MRI results should be coming within a day or two and will give us an idea of the degree of sprain and timetable. He’s considered DTD until we gain that information.

Curtis Granderson (OF, Toronto Blue Jays) – Granderson has missed a few games in a row due to hamstring tightness. Let’s hope the Grandyman can return to the lineup on Tuesday.

Ryan Zimmerman (1B, Washington Nationals) – I’ve seen this one called ‘stiffness’ and ‘a bruise’, so I’m not entirely sure what to think. Zimmerman expects to return to the lineup on Monday… hold onto your hats cause it’s the Nats.

Trevor Gott (RP, Washington Nationals) – I haven’t seen a report indicating which ankle is sprained (I’m guessing left). Either way, an MRI should be forthcoming and that’s when we’ll find out what Trevor’s Gott.

Jeff;

Great updates! Question: can you give a specific estimate as to when Tulowitski will be back? I read different estimates all along.

Jeff Davis

Hi Bbboston,

We can’t really get specific until he starts to do a bit more baseball-wise. I can tell you that he isn’t able to until 5-28-18 at the earliest. A return early in the second week of June is probable if he stays on his current track.

Thanks for reading!

Adrian

Once off the DL, do you think Britton and Andrus will be able to perform at their pre-injury level, or need more time?

Jeff Davis

Hi Adrian,
Andrus may have a tough time throwing at first, though he will get his work in a rehab assignment and likely work through it pretty quickly. I don’t anticipate his injury will affect his offensive profile at all once he’s returned.
With Britton, he appears to be overcoming his injury fairly well. I think there may be a mental barrier to overcome, like we saw with Wainwright after he tore the Achilles tendon of his landing leg. If he is favouring that landing leg he may experience some difficulty locating down in the zone. I wouldn’t panic though – he seems to be handling the mental aspect of his recovery well thus far.
Hope this helps, thanks for reading!
