UPDATES

Jake Lamb (3B, Arizona Diamondbacks) – Lamb has been diagnosed with damage to his left rotator cuff and season-ending surgery has been listed as an option. He is currently seeking additional opinions, though surgery is the likely conclusion.

Shelby Miller (SP, Arizona Diamondbacks) – Miller was transferred to the DL60 and is not eligible to return prior to the middle of September. It feels as though his season is over, though not officially reported.

Dustin Pedroia (2B, Boston Red Sox) – Dave Dombrowski stated he does not anticipate Pedroia to return this season, which helps to explain the Ian Kinsler addition.

DJ Lemaieu (2B, Colorado Rockies) – Lemahieu expects to be activated on Thursday which seems very early.

Daniel Gossett (SP, Oakland Athletics) – Gossett is set to undergo Tommy John surgery and will miss the remainder of the 2018 season.

Johnny Cueto (SP, San Francisco Giants) – Cueto is set to undergo Tommy John surgery, ending his 2018 season.

Lourdes Gurriel Jr. (SS, Toronto Blue Jays) – Gurriel hit the DL with concurrent knee and ankle sprains and will likely be out until September.

ADDITIONS

Peter Moylan (RP, Atlanta Braves) – I’ve slotted Moylan at about the two-week mark as he missed 12 days earlier this year with the same ailment. Keep in mind that forearm flexor strains or tightness are often the body’s response to elbow medial instability.

Sam Freeman (RP, Atlanta Braves) – The move was made retroactively which gives some optimism that Freeman can return quickly. However, the Braves may give him plenty of rest and a rehab assignment as he has scuffled of late and they recently supplemented their bullpen.

Xander Bogaerts (SS, Boston Red Sox) – Bogaerts is dealing with a hand contusion – X-rays negative. He is likely to miss Thursday’s game, though I suspect the Red Sox will push for him to be in the lineup for the remainder of the weekend against the Yankees.

Chris Sale (SP, Boston Red Sox) – The hope is that Sale will only need to miss one start. We should have further updates in a few days. For now, this appears to be mild inflammation.

Mike Fiers (SP, Detroit Tigers) – Fiers should be able to make his next start. X-rays came back negative.

George Springer (OF, Houston Astros) – Springer is dealing with shoulder soreness after a collision with the wall on Tuesday. It sounds as though he was available off the bench on Wednesday, and will likely be able to play on Friday.

Ross Stripling (SP, Los Angeles Dodgers) – This could be mild turf toe (which would make sense in the right foot of a RHP), though I don’t want to speculate as it could also just be a way for the Dodgers to manage Stripling’s workload. He is currently expected to start on 7-9-18 or 7-10-18.

Philip Evans (3B, New York Mets) – I saw a brief video of this incident from only one angle so I could very well be wrong on this one. I saw a bent knee and contact below the knee that didn’t look like it should cause a significant injury to the knee itself. Evans will undergo an MRI on Thursday and further details should be available prior to the weekend. Hopefully, he avoided major injury.

Steven Matz (SP, New York Mets) – Matz is having his forearm examined on Thursday. I presume a DL stint is coming either way, which should at least buy him some rest. This seems independent of his previous elbow difficulties (which was discussed as potential osteoarthritis), but we need to worry about his UCL at this moment. Thursday will likely include an MRI.

J.A. Happ (SP, New York Yankees) – Happ is the second NY pitcher to come down with this odd condition. The current plan is to have Happ start on Saturday against the Red Sox.

Eric Lauer (SP, San Diego Padres) – I’ve not seen any MRI results mentioned yet, but I presume they will be available prior to the weekend.

Ryon Healy (1B, Seattle Mariners) – Healy is DTD for the moment with lower back tightness, though a DL stint may be necessary. Monitor for updates.

Roenis Elias (RP, Seattle Mariners) – Approximately three weeks of absence appears appropriate here as the DL move came days after Elias last pitched but was not done retroactively. His absence may be extended if a rehab assignment is deemed necessary.

Carlos Martinez (SP, St. Louis Cardinals) – I didn’t notice anything different in CarMart’s mechanics comparable to previous outings to indicate he was favouring his previously injured R oblique in any way. Velocity drop in his final inning makes me lean towards anterior shoulder strain which would likely be unrelated to the oblique injury. MRI indicated a mild R shoulder strain though the specific muscle involved was not mentioned. The Cardinals are currently expected a 2-3 start absence, though this could extend into September.

Luke Gregerson (RP, St. Louis Cardinals) – Gregerson hit the DL with a R shoulder impingement which may conclude his disappointing 2018 season.

How seriously do you take the press releases? I am not a doctor but I just assume that whatever the teams says it is is complete nonsense. They have no obligation to be honest I dont think. There may be some rules in place but certainly no enforcement. Teams have every incentive to downplay the severity of everything. The only time it makes sense to say that an injury is severe is preceeding a dl stint and the ‘tears’ only come before surgery. Do you think I am very far off on this?

Jeff Davis

Hi Kraken,

You’re not too far off, and teams definitely over or under report as they see fit and for a variety of reasons (competitive edge, appease a fanbase, service time issues, etc.). Part of what I feel I’m able to offer in this role is some insight into whether what is reported is reasonable or not. It is difficult as I don’t have access to any of the diagnostic imaging or the player themselves to conduct an evaluation but I can compare what is reported to both evidence and experience and create an informed opinion to share.

Long story short, you’re not far off at all and not everything reported should be taken as gospel.

Thank you for reading!
