Injury Report: Sept. 14

Multiple season-ending injuries this week.

This has been an interesting week for injuries. At this point in the season, most injuries will be season-ending injuries. Let’s take a look at the biggest names in this week’s injury report.

 

Eric Hosmer – Finger Fracture

 

Eric Hosmer will be on the shelf for the rest of the regular season after fracturing his finger on a bunt attempt.

Return Date: 2021

 

Andrew Benintendi – Rib Strain

 

Andrew Benintendi will miss the remainder of the 2020 season after battling through a rib strain for most of the season. This is a great move by the Red Sox, it’ll allow Benintendi to recover and be 100% by the start of spring training.

Return Date: 2021

 

Max Fried – Low Back Spasm

 

Max Fried was placed on the IL with spasms in his low back. This isn’t too concerning and I would expect Fried to return in short order. Once he returns I would start him without hesitation.

Return Date: End of the week

 

Tommy Milone – Elbow Inflammation

 

Tommy Milone will miss some time due to elbow inflammation. The severity of this injury isn’t fully known, but I would expect him to miss the rest of the regular season. If Milone is able to return, I wouldn’t want to put him in my lineup.

Return Date: Last road trip

 

Matt Chapman – Hip Surgery

 

Matt Chapman was featured on last week’s injury report due to a hip strain. Less than a week later, we had season-ending hip surgery. Chapman should be 100% by the time Spring Training rolls around, and I would not downgrade him going into this upcoming draft season.

Return Date: 2021

 

Sonny Gray – Back Strain

 

Sonny Gray was placed on the IL with a back strain Friday. This will force him to miss the next week, and we will see if he is able to return. If he is able to return, I wouldn’t be worried about starting him. I think his latest struggles can be contributed to this injury.

Return Date: September 22-24

 

Shin-Soo Choo – Hand Sprain

 

Shin-Soo Choo was placed on the IL with a hand sprain, retroactive to last Tuesday. I’m going to go out on a limb and say Choo will be out of the rest of the season. There really isn’t a point in rushing Choo back with where the Rangers are in the standings.

Return Date: 2021

 

COVID-19: This week we did not have new positives around the league. After getting off to a rough start it seems that MLB finally got things under control, which is great news for the league.

 

As always, if there is someone else you have a question about, leave me a comment or send me a tweet (@Jake_Rob17)! I will get to them as I’m able to. Be sure to check back next week for the latest injury report!

    Do Chris Paddack and Tanner Rainey have anything to contribute these last two weeks? Will Paddack start this week vs MIA?

    • Avatar Jake Robinson says:

      I think Rainey is done. Forearm strains are something I try to stay away from. Word on the street is that Paddack should start this week, so I’m cautiously optimistic about him.

    Are you starting Realmuto in 2-catcher weekly leagues this week?

    • Avatar Jake Robinson says:

      Personally, I wouldn’t. I think best case scenario he is out until Thursday. But I would be shocked if he is back this week.
