MLB Injury Report for April 8

Michael Harris – OF Atlanta Braves

Harris was sent to the Injured List yesterday and is eligible to return on April 17. Overall this doesn’t seem like a serious ailment that should keep him out for long at all. Owners can make due for now with players from the waiver wire.

Kyle Wright – SP Atlanta Braves

Despite Wright’s velocity being down a lot, he felt encouraged by what he was able to do. Perhaps he was working on his mechanics and timing. Overall though, be prepared for his return later this week.

Kyle Bradish – SP Baltimore Orioles

He also played catch yesterday. Things are looking good for Bradish, who aims to make this a minimum-stay trip to the Injured List.

Seiya Suzuki – OF Chicago Cubs, Brandon Hughes – RP Chicago Cubs

Suzuki has been taking simulated at-bats. It’s likely that he has an extended rehab assignment here because he’s missed so much time. As for Hughes, he’s been throwing pain-free for quite some time and will test things out in games.

Aaron Ashby – SP/RP Milwaukee Brewers, Tyrone Taylor – OF Milwaukee Brewers

Ashby’s surgery was a success, but he might be out for the rest of the regular season. Things seem to be going from bad to worse for Taylor, who just cannot get himself healthy. He is expected to miss an extended period of time.

Joey Gallo – 1B/OF Minnesota Twins

Gallo’s pain has been an ongoing issue, and this imaging will hopefully get to the bottom of it all. Expect him to miss at least a game or two while things get organized.

Max Kepler – OF Minnesota Twins

It’s been a bizarre week here as Kepler has been out since April 3. If he goes on the Injured List, there will surely be some sort of retroactive dating happening, but a decision should happen soon.

Alex Kirilloff – 1B/OF Minneosta Twins

Kirilloff continues to be brought back at an incredibly slow pace, and owners everywhere need to exercise patience. It’s hopeful that a rehab assignment will begin soon.

Jorge Polanco – 2B Minnesota Twins

One of the next steps will be for him to be able to play every day, not every other day. That will come eventually, but for now, the good news is that he’ll be up to seven innings of work.

Omar Narvaez – C New York Mets

The team made it official yesterday, though it’s unclear why they didn’t put him on the 60-day Injured List.

Luis Severino – SP New York Yankees, Carlos Rodon – SP New York Yankees

Severino advancing to the bullpen is a good sign for him going forward. As for Rodon, the live BP is the next step before a rehab assignment. A return later in May seems possible right now.

Josh Donaldson – 3B New York Yankees

This likely opens the door for more playing for Isiah Kiner-Falefa or Oswaldo Cabrera.

Darick Hall – 1B Philadelphia Phillies

There is no timetable yet, however, some rumors have him missing two months. Either way, this is a serious injury that will require time before Hall is back in the lineup.

Joe Musgrove – SP San Diego Padres

Musgrove has worked hard to get to where he is in his recovery. Patience should be a virtue here for everyone involved. That said, it’s looking like he will return within the next week or so. Stay tuned for more updates after his next rehab start.

Mitch Haniger – OF San Francisco Giants

Looks like an extended stay on the Injured List for Haniger, who just can’t get himself better. Blake Sabol continues to get at-bats in his absence.

Joey Bart – C San Francisco Giants

Great news as Bart looks to return shortly. It sounds like a minimum stay on the Injured List is possible after all.

Lars Nootbar – OF St. Louis Cardinals

Great news for everyone involved. Be prepared.

Jake Odorizzi – RP Texas Rangers

Absolutely brutal news here. Look for Dane Dunning to take over mid-relief here and receive bulk-inning outings as a result.

Luis Garcia – 2B Washington Nationals

Consider him DTD until otherwise noted.
