ADDITIONS

Clay Buccholz (SP, Arizona Diamondbacks) – I’ve not seen the degree of strain or a particular affected muscle reported, but these factors will alter his timetable. It’s fair to assume we’ll see Buchholz for the start of next year unless we begin hearing about surgery.

TJ McFarland (RP, Arizona Diamondbacks) – McFarland has been told he can’t do any more damage to his elbow by continuing throwing, so he is hoping to pitch again this year. He will likely undergo surgery in the offseason.

Chance Sisco (C, Baltimore Orioles) – Sisco should be able to return at some point this week assuming he passes concussion testing.

Luis Ortiz (SP, Baltimore Orioles) – Ortiz strained his hamstring and will receive an MRI early this week. It sounds like his season is done.

Andrew Cashner (SP, Baltimore Orioles) – Cashner will be skipped on Monday. His next scheduled turn in the rotation would be this Saturday, though he may be shut down for the season prior to that date.

Mookie Betts (OF, Boston Red Sox) – Reports state that Betts is alright and is expected to return on Tuesday.

Hector Velazquez (SP, Boston Red Sox) – Velazquez is battling an illness but should be able to bounce back at some point this week.

Eduardo Nunez (2B, Boston Red Sox) – There haven’t been recent reports on Nunez’ knee, though it is fair to expect him to return at some point this week.

Tommy La Stella (3B, Chicago Cubs) – La Stella should be able to return at some point this week.

Pedro Strop (RP, Chicago Cubs) – Strop’s season is over following a hamstring strain he sustained running the bases.

Tyler Mahle (SP, Cincinnati Reds) – Mahle may be able to make another start this season, though it doesn’t make much sense for the Reds to push him at this point.

Lucas Sims (RP, Cincinnati Reds) – Sims isn’t likely to pitch again this season.

Edwin Encarnacion (DH, Cleveland Indians) – Encarnacion is dealing with a mild ankle sprain and should be able to return this week.

Seunghwan Oh (RP, Colorado Rockies) – Oh has missed time due to hamstring tightness but may be an option for the Rockies this week.

Michael Fulmer (SP, Detroit Tigers) – Fulmer is set to undergo an MRI on Monday and this sounds as though he will be shut down for the remainder of the 2018 season.

Jorge Lopez (RP, Kansas City Royals) – Lopez should be able to return in the latter half of this week or at some point next week.

David Fletcher (2B, Los Angeles Angels) – Degree of strain is currently unknown, but Fletcher is not likely to return this year in any case.

Zack Littell (RP, Minnesota Twins) – Littell is dealing with a D2 blister and should be available within a few days.

Nelson Cruz (DH, Seattle Mariners) – Cruz caught the Mariners flu. He should be able to return in the latter half of this week.

Brandon Belt (1B, San Francisco Giants) – Belt is battling a knee injury and it sounds as though he will continue to be a game-time decision to round out the season.

Jeremy Hellickson (SP, Washington Nationals) – Hellickson re-injured his wrist swinging. He is due for an MRI but isn’t likely to return in 2018.
