MLB Injury Report

Michael Harris – OF Atlanta Braves

More uncertainty for Harris, whose absence was expected to be a short-lived one. It’s now been 13 days since he went on the Injured List and there is no end in sight for him. Still, one has to think that a return is close.

Jorge Mateo – SS Baltimore Orioles

It remains to be seen if this is just a one-day off sort of thing or if he’ll need time within the weekend. All that being said, it looks like he’s avoided anything major.

Yoan Moncada – 3B Chicago White Sox

It’s unclear as to when and where Moncada’s rehab assignment will happen. Until then, his return remains in limbo.

Spencer Steer – INF Cincinnati Reds

It’s encouraging to see that he was able to run at close to 100% today. He remains DTD but seems to be close to a return.

Trevor Rogers – SP Miami Marlins

Rogers left yesterday’s start after 58 pitches and lowered velocity. It’s concerning because of what the injury is and what it could be. There will be more updates today, but it’s looking like a trip to the Injured List is happening.

Corbin Burnes – SP Milwaukee Brewers

Some very positive news here, as it’s looking like a return from Burnes is on its way. Time will tell if he’s able to make his start, but it’s looking great.

Garrett Mitchell – OF Milwaukee Brewers

Mitchell himself said that it happened when he dove into third base. He didn’t feel a pop or anything like that in his shoulder but rather felt more of a shift through his thumb which made it hard to do anything. He was later able to put his arm over his head, leading him to believe it would be okay, but when he threw a ball it hurt again. He will undergo imaging today to determine the severity.

Tyrone Taylor – OF Milwaukee Brewers

Interesting timing here, as the team will likely lose Garrett Mitchell for a significant portion of time. Keep an eye on Taylor’s recovery.

Jorge Polanco – 2B Minnesota Twins

Fantastic news to hear that Polanco feels like it’s at 100% right now. What he’ll need to do is strengthen it in order to keep it as strong as it needs to be. He just elevated his rehab outing to Triple-A and seems to be ready to return soon.

Starling Marte – OF New York Mets

Marte was pulled from yesterday’s game, and it was revealed that this injury has been lingering. Perhaps a day or two will help things get to where they need to be. Consider him DTD.

Carlos Carrasco – SP New York Mets

The hope is that he can avoid surgery, but it’s on the fence as to whether or not that will happen. The team can seemingly ill-afford to lose another pitching piece for a long period of time, though their record would indicate otherwise.

Josh Donaldson – 3B New York Yankees

His return will continue to be delayed. DJ LeMahieu continues to take third base reps for the Yankees.

Carlos Rodon – SP New York Yankees

So far so good for Rodon, who looks to be on his way back, though the timeframe is still unclear.

Brent Rooker – OF Oakland Athletics

Initially removed for precautionary reasons, Rooker’s injury has now cost him two games. Time will tell if this is more serious than the early indications have us believe.

Trevor May – RP Oakland Athletics

Here’s hoping that May can get the help he needs and come back as strong as ever.

Ramon Laureano – OF Oakland Athletics

The severity is unknown, but it’s enough to keep him out of the lineup for a while.

Robbie Ray – SP Seattle Mariners

With the middle of May being an estimate, there’s no telling exactly when he will return, so pinpointing a time is futile. The fact is that Ray has yet to begin a throwing program. Until that happens, he remains a long-term return.

Jose Siri – OF Tampa Bay Rays

The end appears to be in sight here for Siri’s injury time.
