MLB Injury Report for March 17

Mark Melancon – RP, Arizona Diamondbacks

Melancon had an outside shot of getting saves for the committee crew that is the Diamondbacks. Instead, he’ll miss the first few months of the season and likely be eased back into playing. At the age of 37, he should be off of any radar for the time being.

Kyle Wright – SP, Atlanta Braves

After a scare to start the spring, Wright seems to be on his way back to being solidified in the Braves’ rotation. It’s hopeful that his shoulder woes are in the rearview mirror.

Mike Soroka – SP, Atlanta Braves

This is encouraging because his hamstring would need to be healed in order to do these drills. That said, he hasn’t pitched in a game yet, so he may need some time to ramp up to being game ready. While this all seems well and good, he’s been made to look healthy before, so owners shouldn’t hold their breath just yet.

Garrett Whitlock – SP/RP, Boston Red Sox

The tweet says it all. While it’s important to see how his body responds to this, all looks good for now with Whitlock.

Edwin Diaz – RP, New York Mets

Devastatingly unsurprising news here, as the Mets will now scramble for relief help. One has to think that David Robertson will get the lion’s share of saves here, though nothing has been confirmed. Above all else, here’s hoping that Diaz can heal quickly and be back as soon as possible. The timeline for this type of injury is anywhere from six to eight months. What that means is that if he can recover quickly, there’s a chance that we see him in the postseason.

Ranger Suarez – SP, Philadelphia Phillies

Unfortunate news, but it seems that he’s destined to miss one or two starts if any. The Phillies will need help at the back of their rotation, so getting Suarez healthy is what’s important. Bailey Falter remains an option for the team for now.

Bryce Harper – OF, Philadelphia Phillies

Great news here as he continues to progress. This should help him work on his timing before they speed up the pitches.

Andrew McCutchen – OF, Pittsburgh Pirates

Nothing from this seems overly serious, so the hope is that some rest will heal all. Keep an eye on this situation just in case things get worse or don’t go away.

Mitch Haniger – OF San Francisco Giants

The biggest problem in Haniger’s career has been his inability to stay healthy. The talent is there, but his body just hasn’t been able to consistently showcase it. Here’s hoping that additional rest now will help keep him on the field later.

Dylan Moore – OF, Seattle Mariners

Not good news at all, considering he was recovering from core muscle surgery this offseason. The swinging in the cages was supposed to be a big step forward which has instead transformed into a potentially big step backward. Stay tuned.

JP Crawford – SS, Seattle Mariners

The positive news is that Crawford sees the end in sight for his shoulder woes. Time will tell if he’s ready or not.

Jacob deGrom – SP Texas Rangers, Nathan Eovaldi – SP Texas Rangers

Something to monitor for both Rangers’ pitchers here going forward. This puts the bullpen in quite a predicament for the time being. Owners need to be aware of this pitch count and how their bodies respond to gameplay in the first few weeks.

Cade Cavalli – SP Washington Nationals

Horrible news for Cavalli and the team. The Nationals have been snake-bitten for a while with their pitching, and things continue to get worse for them. They may need to wait until the 2025 season to see what they have in Cavalli.
