Injury Report 8/20: Every Player’s DL Situation

Hello and welcome!

There are few updates today as not much has happened. We continue to wait for Aaron Judge to swing a bat before we can accurately project his return. As well, quite a few players have experienced setbacks and have been moved to ETAs in 2019. Those players were mostly not relevant for this season, so I didn’t devote time to writing on each of them.

The following players off the list as they were either activated or optioned: Ronald Acuna, Sam Freeman, Craig Gentry, Ian Kinsler, Leury Garcia, Antonio Senzatela, George Springer, Daniel Hudson, Ryan Braun, Robbie Grossman, Jay Bruce, Steven Matz, Starling Marte, Sean Rodriguez, Roenis Elias, Hunter Strickland, Matt Carpenter, Luke Weaver, Adrian Beltre, and Nomar Mazara.

Let’s check out the table:

UPDATES

Yu Darvish (SP, Chicago Cubs) – Darvish is set to undergo an MRI after experiencing discomfort during a recent rehab start. This may be the end of 2018 for Darvish.

ADDITIONS

Mark Trumbo (DH, Baltimore Orioles) – Trumbo continues to battle a knee injury. He is headed back to Baltimore to be evaluated, and this sounds like it may lead to a DL stint. We should have the results of that examination within a day or two which will help to inform a timetable.

Chris Sale (SP, Boston Red Sox) – Sale returned to the DL with continued shoulder inflammation. It didn’t appear to affect him in his recent start, but it seems he is continuing to battle some discomfort. The DL move was made retroactive to 8-15-18, which leaves some hope for an early return (8-25-18 would be the earliest he is eligible). Last time, Sale spent 2.5 weeks on the DL.

Rafael Devers (3B, Boston Red Sox) – Devers returned to the DL as it seems his hamstring hadn’t recovered fully. He will likely require more than a minimum stint this time around.

Mike Montgomery (RP, Chicago Cubs) – Montgomery felt discomfort in his left shoulder during his bullpen session last week. He is on the DL and may miss more than the minimum.

Joey Votto (1B, Cincinnati Reds) – Votto hit the DL with lingering soreness after a HBP from 8-4-18. This should be a minimum DL stint.

Blaine Hardy (SP, Detroit Tigers) – Hardy hit the DL with what has been described as “elbow tendinitis – I presume it’s the triceps tendon that is inflamed though I’ve not seen that explicitly stated. This injury has the potential to end his 2018 season – we will have to see how he responds to conservative treatments.

Manny Machado (SS, Los Angeles Dodgers) – X-rays came back negative and Machado states he expects to play on Monday.

Erik Goeddel (RP, Los Angeles Dodgers) – This elbow inflammation shouldn’t be related to Goeddel’s recent lat injury, though the timing is suspect. He may be evaluated further once the inflammation has some time to subside and respond to conservative treatments.

Hansel Robles (RP, Los Angeles Angels) – Robles is dealing with a shoulder impingement, and a 4-6 week timetable appears realistic at this time.

Ervin Santana (SP, Minnesota Twins) – Santana returned to the DL with recurring symptoms from his previous finger injury. Given his ineffectiveness, he may embark on a rehab assignment once able.

Bobby Wahl (RP, New York Mets) – This has been described as a Grade 1 strain, so Wahl may return closer to the 2-week end of his timetable.

Brandon Nimmo (OF, New York Mets) – I have a feeling that Nimmo will end up with a retroactive DL stint and a minimum stay, though the Mets have yet to make a move.

Didi Gregorius (SS, New York Yankees) – All reports have this as a contusion thus far, though I’ve not seen X-ray or MRI results at this point. If that diagnosis changes or if pain lingers a DL stint may be warranted.

Austin Davis (RP, Philadelphia Phillies) – This doesn’t sound overly serious, and Davis should be able to contribute out of the Phillies pen again this season.

Aaron Loup (RP, Philadelphia Phillies) – Loup is battling a forearm strain, and will likely be out until early-September.

Hunter Renfroe (OF, San Diego Padres) – X-rays negative, and Renfroe is expected to be in the lineup on Tuesday.

Chris Herrmann (C, Seattle Mariners) – Herrmann should be able to return in the first half of this week.

Dereck Rodriguez (SP, San Francisco Giants) – Rodrigeuz should be able to return from his Grade 1 strain around the beginning of September.

Bartolo Colon (SP, Texas Rangers) – Colon is battling some back stiffness and was scratched from his Sunday start. He is hoping to take the ball on Monday, though I don’t believe that’s been confirmed as of writing this report.

Delino DeShields (OF, Texas Rangers) – DeShields fractured the phalanx of his right middle finger. He was able to show full finger extension during the on-field examination so I don’t believe his terminal extensor tendon or the distal interphalangeal joint are compromised. He has a chance to return in late September if the surgery is a simple fracture, as these observations indicate.
