MLB Injury Report for April 15

Madison Bumgarner – SP Arizona Diamondbacks

Bumgarner lasted five innings last night, but was all over the place and couldn’t keep the Marlins off of the bases. The average velocity on his fastball was down too. There’s a chance this could be something significant as he’s been awful this season.

Orlando Arcia – SS Atlanta Braves

The difference in location could be what extends this Injury List designation since it helps generate power. That said, we’ll know more in just under two weeks. For now, the Braves will stick with Grissom.

Kyle Bradish – SP Baltimore Orioles

He looks locked in and ready to go. There are some that believe he will start this upcoming Wednesday against the Nationals.

Masataka Yoshida – OF Boston Red Sox

Great news for fans everywhere. Be prepared.

James Paxton – SP Boston Red Sox

Paxton will likely make one more rehab start and then the team will look into getting him into their rotation.

Brayan Bello – SP Boston Red Sox

Bello looked great during his rehab. This might push Houck out of the rotation. Be prepared.

Trevor Story – 2B Boston Red Sox

This doesn’t necessarily change the timeline, but rather it’s a note of a significant next step. He’s still months away from returning.

Tim Anderson – SS Chicago White Sox

Great news that he is looking like an early return from his knee injury. Wishing him well with regard to the personal matter.

Yoan Moncada – 3B Chicago White Sox

Moncada and the team are looking like the 21st will be ready for his return. While that’s still a week away, anything can change before then. All that being said, it doesn’t sound concerning.

Elehuris Montero – 3B Colorado Rockies

It’s looking like Montero’s return is imminent. Any day now, he should be slotted back into the Rockies’ lineup.

Austin Meadows – OF Detroit Tigers

It’s great to see that the team is on the same page as Meadows. Support here is key as mental health and wellness are no joke.

Michael Lorenzen – SP Detroit Tigers

Be prepared.

Chas McCormick – OF Houston Astros

McCormick has had a tremendous start to the season. There is speculation that these vision issues were a result of crashing into a wall. That said, nothing is solidified just yet.

Jared Walsh – 1B Los Angeles Angels

Walsh has struggled to stay healthy, but this seems like a step in the right direction. He will likely need a lengthy rehab outing in order to get himself into game shape.

Will Smith – C Los Angeles Dodgers

Consider Smith DTD while he recovers, though he may need the weekend to do so.

Jorge Soler – OF Miami Marlins

Consider Soler DTD for now, and tomorrow he will see how his body responds. He’s likely out of the lineup today in order to get some extra rest.

Jesse Winker – OF Milwaukee Brewers

Winker has missed games all week due to an illness but apparently feels better. Be prepared.

Brandon Woodruff – SP Milwaukee Brewers

This is sounding like it’s a significant injury. Woodruff has been on the Injured List since April 11, and it’s not looking like he will be back within the fifteen-day threshold. Fantasy owners may want to make other plans at starting pitching while this gets itself sorted out.

Adrian Houser – SP/RP Milwaukee Brewers

Houser has been out for a while with a groin injury. The team will likely want cleaner innings before calling him back up, but it’s encouraging that he pitched.

Joey Gallo – 1B Minnesota Twins

Gallo hitting in his rehab assignment, as he aims to return after a ten-day window.

Alex Kirilloff – 1B Minnesota Twins

Kirilloff generating power with his wrist is a great sign, even if it’s at Low-A ball.

DJ LeMahieu – INF New York Yankees

Great news that LeMahieu’s old foot injury isn’t coming back at all. Be prepared.

J.D. Davis – 3B San Francisco Giants

Davis will likely miss today’s game and be labeled as DTD since it’s a bruise and nothing more.

Joc Pederson – OF San Francisco Giants

Pederson apparently received a cortisone shot in order to help alleviate the pain and avoid the Injured List. Time will tell if things improve, but consider him DTD for now.

Robbie Ray – SP Seattle Mariners

Ray apparently looks and feels good, so the likelihood of a throwing program being developed is high. That said, look for the official word after the weekend.

Adam Wainwright – SP St. Louis Cardinals

The conservative guess would be three rehab starts, as Wainwright hasn’t pitched and he’s quite old for a starter. Look for him back soon enough, but expectations should be tempered.

Jeffrey Springs – SP Tampa Bay Rays

The news so far has not been kind for the outlook of Springs. The fact that it’s more than a nerve issue is concerning, which could lead to a significant absence. Owners need to come to the realization that he may not pitch again this season, as second opinions aren’t usually for a good reason.

Jose Berrios – SP Toronto Blue Jays

Berrios took a comeback off of his knee, and there was some concern about a major injury. For now, it looks to be okay.
