Scott McGough – RP Arizona Diamondbacks

McGough is one for two in saves this season and will miss the next few days. Congrats to him and his family.

Travis d’Arnaud – C Atlanta Braves

Great to see that d’Arnaud is feeling better, but he is still without a timetable to return. Sean Murphy continues to be the lead catcher.

Ian Anderson – SP Atlanta Braves, Max Fried – SP Atlanta Braves

Anderson will miss the next two seasons of any sort of fantasy relevance as he works to recover from this major surgery. As for Fried, this is a big change from yesterday’s report where he was to miss the next two weeks at minimum. Stay tuned as things change rapidly.

Dansby Swanson – SS Chicago Cubs

Apparently, Swanson was feeling cramping as he was with his wife in the hospital all night. This is great news for owners who were worried for much worse. He seems to have avoided any major injury but may need another day off just to be safe.

Tim Anderson – SS Chicago White Sox

He is set to miss up to a month with soreness in his knee. Elvis Andrus will likely get some reps at shortstop now in his absence. Not ideal at all.

Eloy Jimenez – OF Chicago White Sox, Yoan Moncada – 3B Chicago White Sox

Jimenez is eligible to return as of this Saturday, but nothing is close to being official. He has been quick in his recovery and feels great apparently. As for Moncada, he has been out for the last two games and is expected to miss all of the series against the Twins. He’s aiming to return this weekend as well.

Daniel Bard – RP Colorado Rockies

Bard feels comfortable taking his time, which is what needs to be done. It’s positive that he was facing live hitters today as he aims to return as confident as ever.

German Marquez – SP Colorado Rockies

Both Marquez and the team were happy and relieved with the results of the MRI, noting that this could have been a lot worse. While there’s no timetable for a return, he could have been out for much longer had the results been different.

Elehuris Montero – 3B Colorado Rockies

Consider him DTD until told otherwise.

Brandon Woodruff – SP Milwaukee Brewers

Woodruff heads to the Injury List as a precautionary measure to give him extra rest. His body wasn’t responding and recovering quite like it should have so he’s going to get extra time to feel better. He himself said that he is dealing with typical things that he usually has later in the year. He also said that had he gone out and pitched this Thursday, he would have done more damage and needed time off. The hope is that it will be a minimum stay on the Injury List.

Jesse Winker – OF Milwaukee Brewers

There you have it, Winker is sick. Consider him DTD until he feels better.

Joey Gallo – 1B/OF Minnesota Twins

Gallo had been working hard to get back to game action, but alas it became too much for him. He will miss the next ten days (at minimum) and return when he’s ready. Edourard Julien was called up in his place.

Alex Kirilloff – 1B Minnesota Twins

Kirilloff started last night at first base and went 1-3 with a single. His rehab will likely be a lengthy one to fully test out the wrist.

Carlos Correa – SS Minnesota Twins

Kyle Farmer continues to get extra playing time in his absence. By the looks of it, the team is hopeful to get him back into games before the weekend.

Jose Quintana – SP New York Mets

Quintana has been rehabbing, as part of the plan. He isn’t expected back until at least July.

Gleyber Torres – 2B New York Yankees

The move sounded precautionary, especially with no extra tests in place at this time. That said, it’s all dependent on how his body responds. It wouldn’t be surprising to see him get today off, especially with the team having an early start.

Luis Severino – SP New York Yankees

Severino threw on Monday and recovered nicely with no problems whatsoever. He will attempt to do so again before taking the next step.

Carlos Rodon – SP New York Yankees

Rodon has seem to have avoided any major setbacks with his back stiffness earlier in the month. He’s also recovered nicely from this forearm strain, though the April return seems out of the question now. Things are looking good for Rodon, though owners should still be a little cautious.

Seth Brown – 1B/OF Oakland Athletics

Terrible news that will keep the team’s best hitter in Brown on the shelf for quite some time.

Bryce Harper – OF Philadelphia Phillies

Very encouraging that Harper is ready to hit in a game, but an overlooked aspect is that of sliding. While it’s easy to tell him not to slide, the team needs to be prepared for this. Otherwise, all of the progress made over the last little while will be gone and they’ll have to start over again. It’s been noted too that his glovework in taking ground balls does not mean that Haper will play first base. Harper has a follow-up appointment at the end of April to determine what’s next for him. Some say that a return in late May is a possibility.

Ranger Suarez – SP Philadelphia Phillies

Very encouraging development here as Suarez seems to be ready to move on to a rehab assignment. Look for the team to make an announcement later today. Stay tuned.

Mitch Haniger – OF San Francisco Giants

It’s the injury that won’t seem to heal. Haniger’s debut gets delayed even more.

Robbie Ray – SP Seattle Mariners

Definitely not the best news as he hasn’t even been throwing. Ray has been out since April 1 and will continue to miss time while he recovers from a Grade 1 flexor strain. He will likely need a rehab assignment.

Adam Wainwright – SP St. Louis Cardinals

Wainwright hopes to make his season debut before the end of April.

Dylan Carlson – OF St. Louis Cardinals

Carlson felt spasms in his neck and needed treatment yesterday. He’ll be listed as DTD until told otherwise.

Yandy Diaz – 1B/3B Tampa Bay Rays

Diaz is confident that he’ll play later today. Keep an eye on the official word from the team, but this is encouraging nonetheless.

Tyler Glasnow – SP Tampa Bay Rays

This was Glasnow’s first time throwing since he went on the Injured List. While it’s encouraging to see him throwing, he’s behind the projected 6-8 week timeline. Look for him to build on this soon.

Zach Eflin – SP Tampa Bay Rays

The good news is that the testing done for Eflin’s back came clean. It might be a tolerance issue or something that just requires extra rest.

Corey Seager – SS Texas Rangers

Not much else is known right now. There will be updates today informing us of what’s exactly wrong. There could be tests done or he could just need rest.
