MLB Injury Report

Michael Harris – OF Atlanta Braves

Note – there are mixed results when figuring out what’s happening with Harris. While this initial report states that could be cleared later today, a second report says that manager Brian Snitker claims Harris has yet to get better. Time will tell, but there’s no guarantee that he plays at all this week.

Raisel Iglesias – RP Atlanta Braves

Fantastic news that Iglesias is now throwing. His action had been minimal and/or next to none for quite some time so this throwing is a welcomed sight. He will likely need multiple bullpen sessions before ramping it up with a rehab outing.

Hunter Greene – SP Cincinnati Reds

The good news is that Greene hopes to make his next start. He’s said that it depends on how his body responds over the next few days. Stay tuned, but it seems like he’s avoided anything serious.

Lucas Sims – RP Cincinnati Reds, Spencer Steer – INF Cincinnati Reds’

Sims should return to the setup role once reinstated. He has a chance to get some saves, but the role belongs to Diaz. As for Steer, consider him DTD unless we hear anything more substantial.

Daniel Bard – RP Colorado Rockies

Bard is returning from anxiety early on but has looked sharp in rehab. He has a chance to come in and take over the closer spot in Colorado, but it’s unlikely to happen right away.

German Marquez – SP Colorado Rockies

Marquez is aiming to return from his Injured List designation within the minimum 15-day timeline. He will have to go through the rigors of showing that he is ready, starting with basic throwing.

Chas McCormick – OF Houston Astros

He did not pinch-run in that game, but the insistence of that being possible shows how close he is.

Kris Bubic – SP Kansas City Royals

Uh oh, definitely not a good sign here. Time will tell how serious this injury really is. He is likely to miss more than the minimum of fifteen days regardless of any diagnosis.

Chris Taylor – OF Los Angeles Dodgers

Consider him DTD until we know more. What we do know is that he injured his side while throwing and will undergo tests. Stay tuned.

Avisail Garcia – OF Miami Marlins

It’s looking like Garcia is close to a return from a wrist contusion.

Corbin Burnes – SP Milwaukee Brewers

The good news is that the injury to Brunes seems to be minor. There is talk that he will make his next start, though it’s all up in the air at this point. He himself said that he hurt it while stretching out to make a tag. He felt it cramp up afterward, saw his velocity drop, and knew it was time to exit the game. He’s not overly concerned and will get some later treatment today.

Jesse Winker – OF Seattle Mariners

Winker was available off the bench, so he can’t be that far off from returning. Consider him DTD.

Harrison Bader – OF New York Yankees

Light batting practice isn’t as optimistic as regular batting practice. That said, it’s a step in the right direction. Bader will still need a rehab assignment before returning.

Jace Peterson – INF Oakland Athletics

Consider Peterson DTD as he was available off of the bench.

Paul Blackburn – SP Oakland Athletics

Blackburn was returning from an avulsion on his nail, and now he has a blister. He will require additional time while he gets this better.

Luis Campusano – C San Diego Padres

Campusano jammed his thumb during a bullpen session and will need time to let it heal.

Joe Musgrove – SP San Diego Padres

Musgrove looks all but ready to return.

Mitch Haniger – OF San Francisco Giants, Joc Pederson – OF San Francisco Giants

It’s been a long time coming for Haniger, who will finally begin a (lengthy) rehab assignment. As for Pederson, it’s unclear as to whether or not he will require one himself.

Adam Wainwright – SP St. Louis Cardinals

Good to see that his return is inching way closer. It will be interesting to see how his body responds during these rehab outings.

Jose Siri – OF Tampa Bay Rays

Fantastic news, as Siri was having a mini-breakout prior to his injury. Time will tell when a return comes, but the light seems to be appearing at the end of the tunnel.

Zach Eflin – SP Tampa Bay Rays

Great news that he’s likely to return in less than a week….barring a setback. Be prepared.

Jacob deGrom – SP Texas Rangers

Jacob deGrom seems optimistic about this injury and that his exit was precautionary. The soreness he experienced was with him early in the game and he tried to pitch through it. As the game went on, it got worse and he didn’t want to create an even bigger problem for himself. We’ll know more later today, but for now, he may have evaded anything overly serious.
