Injury Report 7/23: Every Player’s DL Situation

Jeff Davis updates the massive table of all injured players in today's edition of the Injury Report.

Hello and welcome!

The following players off the list as they were either activated or optioned: Andrew Cashner, Chris Tillman, Rafael Devers, Nick Delmonico, Avisail Garcia, Edwin Encarnacion, Antonio Senzatela, Leonys Martin, Brady Rodgers, Jake Junis, Jim Johnson, Nick Tropeano, Ryan Braun, Manny Pina, Logan Morrison, Asdrubal Cabrera, Gary Sanchez, Luis Garcia, Sean Rodriguez, Felix Hernandez, Mike Zunino, Harrison Bader, Matt Duffy, Alex Claudio, Carlos Perez, Lourdes Gurriel Jr., Koda Glover, Stephen Strasburg, and Ryan Zimmerman.

As I discussed on the most recent episode of On the List with host Austin Bristow II, Shoehei Ohtani has been cleared to resume a throwing progression. He likely does not have time to return to a starter’s workload and I still feel that Tommy John is in his future at some point but he is making some forward progress. Be sure to check out that episode of On the List (and the preceding episodes if you haven’t yet) as it was a ton of fun and something I look forward to doing again in the future!

Let’s check out the table:

UPDATES

Nate Jones (RP, Chicago White Sox) – Jones suffered a setback and will be shut down from throwing for approximately two weeks. He may not return until September at this rate.

Chad Bettis (SP, Colorado Rockies) – Bettis experienced a recurrence of his blister issues and will likely be sidelined for another week.

Carlos Correa (SS, Houston Astros) – Correa has returned to baseball activities and is currently on schedule to return in the first week of August.

Ian Kennedy (SP, Kansas City Royals) – Someone came to their sense and the Royals are no longer rushing Kennedy back.

Justin Turner (3B, Los Angeles Dodgers) – Turner is likely to return to the DL10 as he re-aggravated his groin injury. MRI results or additional news may be forthcoming, but for the time being expect Turner out until mid-August.

Yoenis Cespedes (OF, New York Mets) – Cespedes was back for a brief period before heading back to the DL. He is receiving an MRI which will help to identify how long he will be out. This feels like heel bone spurs which won’t really resolve without a season-ending operation but I’ll wait for imaging results to confirm. There is a chance that he is dealing with some sort of inflammatory condition that he could receive a cortisone shot to carry him through to the offseason, but I don’t feel that’s probable at this point. If I’m a Cespedes owner I’m very worried at the moment.

T.J. Rivera (1B, New York Mets) – Rivera experienced a setback in his surgically repaired right elbow UCL and it is difficult to expect him back prior to September if he is to return at all this year.

ADDITIONS

Ozzie Albies (2B, Atlanta Braves) – Though Albies will miss a few games I currently expect him back prior to the latter half of this week.

Brock Holt (2B, Boston Red Sox) – Holt was spiked, suffering only a contusion. He should be able to return in the first half of this week.

Anthony Bass (RP, Chicago Cubs) – Bass went back to the DL after only a few days, this time with a back injury. He should return around the middle of August.

Brandon Morrow (RP, Chicago Cubs) – While MRI results haven’t been clearly reported this appears to be a biceps strain. At this point, mid-August appears reasonable though a degree of strain hasn’t been explicitly stated.

Alex Blandino (2B, Cincinnati Reds) – Blandino tore the ACL in his right knee in an awkward play and will miss the remainder of the 2018 season.

DJ Lemahieu (2B, Colorado Rockies) – Lamhieu went down with an oblique strain of an unknown degree and will miss an extended period.

Michael Fulmer (SP, Detroit Tigers) – No degree of strain has been communicated, though I’m slightly optimistic that it is minor as the Tigers caught it in the pen pre-game. Updates are required, but count Fulmer out for an extended period at this point.

Brent Suter (SP, Milwaukee Brewers) – Suter is likely to hit the DL once again as he had a recurrence of his left forearm strain. He will undergo an MRI in the coming days to determine the severity, though he should be counted out for at least a few weeks at this point.

Jesus Aguilar (1B, Milwaukee Brewers) – Aguilar dealt with some cramping which doesn’t appear to be much of a concern. I expect him to return in the early half of this week.

Noah Syndergaard (SP, New York Mets) – Syndergaard is likely to return within a week after he is first eligible. This is just an odd and unfortunate scenario but nothing to be concerned about.

Mark Canha (OF, Oakland Athletics) – Canha should return in the first half of this week.

Edubray Ramos (RP, Philadelphia Phillies) – I’ve given Ramos a conservative timetable though no degree of strain has been reported. If this is a more severe case and surgery is required his 2018 is over.

Carlos Martinez (SP, St. Louis Cardinals) – The Cards are optimistic that CarMart will only miss one start with his oblique strain. I’m inclined to agree with them as the injury occurred playing the field and not pitching and is to the oblique that is not stressed during a right-hander’s pitching motion.

Kevin Kiermaier (OF, Tampa Bay Rays) – The Rays are expecting Kiermaier to return on Monday, though this may be optimistic.

Joey Gallo (OF, Texas Rangers) – This ankle injury appears minor and the exit was reported as precautionary. Gallo is currently expected to play on Monday.

Nomar Mazara (OF, Texas Rangers) – I’ve not seen surgery mentioned as an option so this feels like a minor sprain. Mazara may be able to return when first eligible though early-August may be more reasonable.

    If Darvish just got dropped in your points league and you’re in second place, would you drop your worse pitcher for him?? What’s the latest on him?

    • Avatar Jeff Davis says:

      Hi Alex,

      This ultimately depends on your league settings and who your worst SP is at the moment, as well as if you have a free DL spot but Darvish is finally trending in the right direction. He should throw off a mound soon and we will see how he feels after that. If he stays on his current course we could see him return in late-August or early-September.

      Best of luck!

    What are you hearing about Johnny Cueto’s elbow. It sounds like he could be on the verge of surgery and is just trying to gut it out.

    • Avatar Jeff Davis says:

      Hi Dodgertom,

      I’ve not seen anything conclusive, though it is certainly possible he is experiencing difficulty due to his right elbow sprain. He saw Dr. James Andrews (THE guy for Tommy John) in May who did not recommend surgery at that time. It’s possible that this continues to be something that Cueto is trying to work through. At this point, it’s difficult to say whether he is dealing with injury or if 2017 is the Cueto we should expect (FB velocity is down, though it has been declining for years. BB% is up comparable to April though in line with his 2017 numbers).
