UPDATES

Mark Trumbo (DH, Baltimore Orioles) – Trumbo opted for season-ending knee surgery. He will hope for a better 2019.

Yu Darvish (SP, Chicago Cubs) – Darvish will be shut down for the remainder of 2018.

Matt Shoemaker (SP, Los Angeles Angels) – Shoemaker began a rehab assignment and may be able to return to the rotation in early September.

Michael Pineda (SP, Minnesota Twins) – Pineda was on the comeback trail prior to a recent knee injury. He will hope to be back for the beginning of the 2019 season.

Christian Villanueva (3B, San Diego Padres) – Villanueva ended up with a fractured finger. He may be able to return in late September.

ADDITIONS

Anibal Sanchez (SP, Atlanta Braves) – Though no probable starter has been announced for Friday, and no update on Sanchez has been posted since 8-25-18, I presume he will be fine to take the ball as the cause of his hamstring tightness has been cited as dehydration.

Cedric Mullins (OF, Baltimore Orioles) – Mullins hopes to be in the lineup on Friday.

Mitch Moreland (1B, Boston Red Sox) – Moreland has been in and out of the lineup since injuring his knee last Thursday. I presume he will be able to play Friday, though he may continue to receive sporadic breaks.

David Price (SP, Boston Red Sox) – This feels like a DL stint is coming, though Price should only miss one start. The Red Sox will have until the weekend to make a retroactive move.

Tyler Chatwood (SP, Chicago Cubs) – Chatwood hit the DL though he has already begun a rehab assignment. He may not receive many more starts down the stretch, though the Cubs will likely give him ample time to work on things during this rehab assignment in the hopes he can be an effective reliever.

Amir Garrett (RP, Cincinnati Reds) – Garrett has been battling foot-related issues for much of the second half. If symptoms linger, it may make sense to shut him down for the remainder of the season.

Andrew Miller (RP, Cleveland Indians) – There is a chance that Miller could face a minimum DL stint depending on how he reacts to the cortisone injection he has received. External impingement occurs in the shoulder but outside of the shoulder joint itself.

Neil Ramirez (RP, Cleveland Indians) – This feels like a phantom DL stint as Ramirez has scuffled as of late. I suspect a rehab assignment will be completed and Ramirez will return in early September once rosters expand.

Tim Anderson (SS, Chicago White Sox) – Anderson is battling an ankle contusion, though he should be able to return to the lineup prior to the end of this weekend.

Wellington Castillo (C, Chicago White Sox) – Limited details are available, though it seems Castillo injured his shoulder during rehab games. He may be able to return in early September, though additional updates are necessary.

Jose Iglesias (SS, Detroit Tigers) – This should result in a DL stint, and may end Iglesias’ season if his progress is slow.

Charlie Morton (SP, Houston Astros) – Morton is expected to return during the first half of September as he rests and works through some mild discomfort in his right shoulder.

Daniel Hudson (RP, Los Angeles Dodgers) – After facing a minimum DL stint Hudson returned to the DL for the same ailment. I presume he will be out longer this time and may end of missing the remainder of the season.

Albert Pujols (1B, Los Angeles Angels) – Though this is a minimally invasive procedure, it will end Pujols’ 2018 season.

Elieser Hernandez (RP, Miami Marlins) – Hernandez should be able to return shortly after he is first eligible.

Jarlin Garcia (RP, Miami Marlins) – Garcia is dealing with a contusion, as x-rays came back negative. He should be able to return in early September.

Jorge Polanco (SS, Minnesota Twins) – Polanco has dealt with cramping that is likely due to dehydration. Continue to monitor his status, though I presume he will be ready to play on Friday.

Bobby Wilson (C, Minnesota Twins) – This feels relatively minor, and Wilson should be able to return at some point in early September.

Manny Pina (C, Minnesota Twins) – Pina required some stitches, though he should be ready to return to play shortly. He passed concussion testing.

Robert Gsellman (RP, New York Mets) – Gsellman is battling strep throat and hasn’t been eating much. He may remain out until early next week.

Devin Mesoraco (C, New York Mets) – The Mets feel that Mesoraco can avoid a DL stint, though he has a history of neck injuries. He may be able to return to action early next week, though additional updates are needed.

Brett Anderson (SP, Oakland Athletics) – Anderson hit the DL with a forearm strain and may miss the remainder of the regular season.

Sean Manaea (SP, Oakland Athletics) – As this was originally diagnosed as a shoulder impingement, I believe this to be tendinitis of Manaea’s supraspinatus muscle. This is a case where I think I’d prefer the impingement. If this is mild enough, Manaea may be able to return in time for the postseason, though I don’t believe that to be the likely outcome.

Justin Bour (1B, Philadelphia Phillies) – This appears to a minor strain, though it may still hold Bour out until mid-to-late September.

Edubray Ramos (RP, Philadelphia Phillies) – Ramos should be able to return in early September.

Clayton Richard (SP, San Diego Padres) – The type of surgery isn’t clear at the moment, but it will end Richard’s season regardless.

Marco Gonzalez (SP, Seattle Mariners) – Gonzalez is battling a neck strain that is reportedly mild. He should be able to return to the rotation in early September.

Jean Segura (SS, Seattle Mariners) – Segura’s x-rays came back negative, though additional imaging may be needed to adequately diagnose a bone bruise. Segura is DTD for now, and if he stays on that plan he may rejoin the lineup this weekend.

Steven Duggar (OF, San Francisco Giants) – Surgery has been recommended and will end Duggar’s 2018 season.

Matt Carpenter (1B, St. Louis Cardinals) – Carpenter should be able to return at some point this weekend.

Jedd Gyorko (3B, St. Louis Cardinals) – Presuming this is mild, Gyorko may return in mid-September. If this strain is Grade 2, his season could be over.

Kolton Wong (2B, St. Louis Cardinals) – This appears minor, and Wong may be able to return when first eligible.

Mike Mayers (RP, St. Louis Cardinals) – The severity of this ailment is unclear, though it may cost Mayers the remainder of the regular season if he is not able to quickly control the inflammation in his throwing shoulder.

Mallex Smith (OF, Tampa Bay Rays) – Smith is battling a viral infection though he has been discharged from the hospital. He should be able to return when first eligible.

Hanser Alberto (3B, Texas Rangers) – Alberto has a minor hamstring strain. He will likely miss just over the minimum.

Nick Gardewine (RP, Texas Rangers) – This is a procedural move, as Gardewine will miss the remainder of the 2018 season.

Matt Wieters (C, Washington Nationals) – Wieters has stated that trainers were able to assist him with the back tightness that caused his early exit on Wednesday. He should be able to play on Friday.

Bryce Harper (OF, Washington Nationals) – Harper is dealing with a minor illness and should return on Friday.

Kelvin Herrera (RP, Washington Nationals) – With surgery looming, it appears Herrera will miss the remainder of the 2018 season.

Hello,

I think the odds of him throwing in a game prior to the end of the regular season remain slim, and rushing him back doesn’t fit in with how Cleveland has managed injuries thus far this year. If anything, he may get one start prior to the playoffs to act as a rehab assignment (it would be against an AL Central team, so it may as well be a minor league squad) – but even then it’s likely a DLH.

With that said, the forward progress may make him a worthwhile DL stash if you have space and he was dropped.

Ryan

Feels like there have been waaaaay more injuries this year than in the past. I’ve regularly had 5-7 guys on the DL (guys I refuse to drop) not to count the guys who I lost for the year like C. Seager, G. Richards, J. Winkler or guys like G. Sanchez, K. Bryant, C. Martinez. D. LeMahieu who have all been on the DL multiple times this season. I’ve been playing FBB for nearly 2 decades and I’ve never seen this many injuries.

Jeff Davis

Hi Ryan,

This is the first year I’ve reported on injuries consistently, but I must say it has felt like a lot this year. I’m not sure if it’s random fluctuation, the 10-day DL, or teams being more conservative with their stars – or some combination of all three!

I often sit down to write this article, see the list of new guys who are hurt, and make some comment to myself about how we need to cover players in bubble wrap 🙂

Jeff Davis

Hi stevek,

He has not swung a bat, to my knowledge. The timetable provided may be optimistic, especially when considering that the longer he has been out the more rehab games he requires. I form timetables for cases like his where things drag on by thinking ‘what’s the soonest he could conceivably return should he reach the next recovery milestone prior to my next update’. Judge could return later than this timetable – there is difficulty projecting a return date for a guy who is behind schedule.
