James Paxton – SP Boston Red Sox

Paxton has struggled with his command, so the team would like to see him work out some of the kinks before he’s called up. That said, one has to wonder who is out of the rotation once Paxton does get called back up to Boston.

Austin Hays – OF Baltimore Orioles

While it’s optimistic that the team dodged a bullet here with Hays, the outlook is that he’ll miss a handful of games before returning. The team hopes he won’t need a trip to the Injured List. Consider him DTD, but the possibility of him going to the Injured List is there.

Jameson Taillon – SP Chicago Cubs

Taillon has done this more than once and has thrown from flat ground as well. He still has a ways to go before returning, which includes mound work, but he seems to be on the right path.

Wil Myers – OF Cincinnati Reds

Myers was originally out this week due to back spasms, but will now miss time with an illness. Consider him DTD unless this virus gets stronger.

Triston McKenzie – SP Cleveland Guardians

Great news for Mckenzie and fantasy owners. He apparently threw from 75 just a few days ago and is now ready for mound work. The team has taken things slowly with him but may be prepared to see how things progress with a little more speed. He is eligible to return as of May 29.

German Marquez – SP Colorado Rockies

Marquez had just returned from forearm inflammation, and now will likely miss even more time once the MRI is completed. He himself noted that he was worried about the injury, and that’s never a good sign. Stay tuned.

Javier Baez – SS Detroit Tigers

Baez exited the game, and the x-rays on his hand came back negative. Consider him DTD.

Chas McCormick – OF Houston Astros

The longer that McCormick remains out of action, the more likely it will be that he needs a rehab assignment. That said, it’s been just over a week since he last played. The team should make a decision shortly.

Kris Bubic – SP Kansas City Royals

The news was posted on Kris Bubic’s Instagram account. He will miss the rest of this season and most of next season recovering from his injury.

Miguel Rojas – SS Los Angeles Dodgers, Will Smith – C Los Angeles Dodgers

Rojas has participated in drills on the field with the team but will require a handful of rehab games before returning. As for Smith, he’s been symptom-free for almost a week now, but the team wants him to do a few more things before returning. He should be back soon.

Joey Wendle – INF Miami Marlins

Wednle is getting close to a return but needs one final hurdle before doing so.

Kenta Maeda – SP Minnesota Twins

Maeda has had difficulty staying healthy this season, and any elbow ailments are concerning. Baldelli also said that Maeda would need some time off, so an IL stint is likely. Look for Bailey Ober to come in and take over his spot in the rotation.

Justin Verlander – SP New York Mets

Interesting development here from Verlander. With a rehab start slated for tomorrow, he could very well be ready by Wednesday of next week. There will be more news regarding this speculation and hope next week.

Ramon Laureano – OF Oakland Athletics

Laureano has been accelerating his recovery throughout his time on the Injured List, so a quick rehab is what’s likely to happen.

Paul Blackburn – SP Oakland Athletics

Blackburn’s hand just can’t seem to get right this year, but he’ll try again in a few days.

Taijuan Walker – SP Philadelphia Phillies

There were mixed reports, calling this injury ominous when it happened. Perhaps that was believing the worst, but for now, it appears to be okay. That said, anything can happen during today’s evaluation. Stay tuned.

Yu Darvish – SP San Diego Padres

Be prepared.

Robbie Ray – SP Seattle Mariners

Ray will finish the season on a disappointing note, missing the majority of it with an injury. It’s an unfortunate turn of events, as his pain never went away, despite him feeling better. While he believed that the area of concern was cleaned up, he went in for an evaluation only to find that there was significant damage done and that he’d need surgery to fix it. The saddening news is that, as of now, there’s no guarantee that he is ready for Spring Training. Simply awful.

Josh Jung – 3B Texas Rangers

From panic to relief, Jung’s X-rays showed no significant damage. Still, he should be considered DTD for now with the possibility of a trip to the Injured List.

George Springer – OF Toronto Blue Jays

The tweet says it all, the Jays dodged a bullet. The team is off today, so perhaps that’s all that Springer will need before returning. That said, he’s still DTD with the possibility of missing some time.
