Fantrax Injury Report: April 9, 2023 – d’Arnaud out, Murphy in

Here is the Fantrax Injury Report for Sunday, April 9, 2023.

Your league didn’t use Fantrax this season? Preposterous! Check out all that Fantrax has to offer and we think your entire league will make a change for next season.

MLB Injury Report for April 9

Travis d’Arnaud – C Atlanta Braves

Sean Murphy will be the team’s primary catcher now with d’Arnaud about to miss about one week of playing time. There’s no guarantee that he will be back within the minimum missing time either.

Jorge Mateo – SS Baltimore Orioles

Consider Mateo DTD for now until otherwise told. Gunnar Henderson slid over to shortstop while Ramon Urias played third base in his absence.

James Paxton – SP Boston Red Sox, Brayan Bello – SP Boston Red Sox, Garrett Whitlock – SP Boston Red Sox

The plan is for Paxton to pitch four innings in this start, while Bello’s goal is to reach six innings. This could be the final start for Bellow before getting called up, but nothing is set in stone. As for Whitlock, be prepared to insert him into your lineups.

CJ Cron – 1B Colorado Rockies

Consider Cron as DTD while he battles through these symptoms. Mike Moustakas took his place at first base in his absence.

Austin Meadows – OF Detroit Tigers

This is obviously something that is bigger than baseball, and thus, time away from the game is what’s best. Here’s hoping that Meadows gets what he needs and can be the happy and healthy person that he can be. Whether or not that’s in the game of baseball is beside the point.

Miguel Rojas – SS Los Angeles Dodgers

Rojas has been sidelined for the better part of April, so a return here would be welcomed.

Adrian Houser – SP Milwaukee Brewers

Houser will begin his work as a multi-inning reliever in his rehab assignment. The plan is for him to carry over that role when he’s here with the Brewers too. There is no timetable for a return, however.

Max Kepler – OF Minnesota Twins

After a week of uncertainty, Kepler officially gets the Injured List designation. Only time will tell if his patellar tendinitis can be healed within the minimum ten-day timeframe.

Joey Gallo – 1B/OF Minnesota Twins

Not the biggest update, but it’s all we have to go on. We’ll see if anything comes of this on Sunday, but for now, he’ll likely remain out of the lineup.

Harrison Bader – OF New York Yankees

Bader has been out all year with an oblique strain, so the rehab assignment will have to be a lengthy one. It’s not looking promising that he will return before the month of May.

Jonathan Loaisiga – RP New York Yankees

Essentially shut down for up to a month, there is fear of a significant injury here. Stay tuned.

Josh Donaldson – 3B New York Yankees

The good news is that it doesn’t seem like a serious injury at all. Still, with it being Donaldson, one never knows.

Paul Blackburn – SP Oakland Athletics

Blackburn continues to feel better and better after his finger avulsion. He’s looking to return as soon as possible.

Joey Bart – C San Franciso Giants

The Giants will need the services of Bart as soon as possible, given the fact that Roberto Perez was placed on the 60-day Injured List. It’s looking like a minimum stay on the Injured List for Bart based on how quickly he’s recovering.

Jose Siri – OF Tampa Bay Rays

Deflating news for someone who came into the year with such promise. The hope is that he can return in ten days, but with hamstrings, you never know.
