MLB Injury Report for March 27

Kyle Wright – SP Atlanta Braves

After being shut down earlier this spring due to shoulder soreness, Wright finally returned healthy about a week ago. He was able to pitch through four innings of work but still requires time to work out the kinks. This will give him what he needs to ramp up his arm while also figuring out his command. He looks likely for a minimum stay on the Injured List, but anything can happen.

Kenley Jansen – RP Boston Red Sox

It was great news to see him back at the ballpark and ready to go. Later today will be a big day for him to just pitch without any side effects.

Yoan Moncada – 3B Chicago White Sox

Moncada has been battling through injuries since his 2019 breakout season. It’s the hope of many that this is insignificant and that he’ll be ready for Opening Day.

Joey Votto – 1B Cincinnati Reds

Votto has been battling through a rotator cuff injury but has still been able to play this Spring. He later said in the same interview that he wants to be 100% ready physically so that he can perform for the fans. It’s possible that he won’t require a long stint on the Injured List due to his participation this spring, but nothing has yet been announced.

Triston McKenzie – SP Cleveland Guardians

Definitely not what anyone wants to see so close to the start of the season. It’s the hope of many that this precautionary removal did in fact alleviate all concerns going forward. Stay tuned.

Hunter Brown – SP Houston Astros

That’s an interesting development. The big test will be the simulated game that he throws. Should everything check out fine, he could be in line to start the season with the team and not miss any starts.

Jazz Chisholm Jr. – 2B/OF Miami Marlins

The hope is that this precautionary removal is a temporary thing. Chances are his new position might have something to do with this and he is just getting used to it. That is pure speculation, but it’s all we have right now.

Adrian Houser – SP Milwaukee Brewers

Houser has dealt with this before, including at the end of the 2022 season. This is something to monitor, and a trip to the Injured List can’t be ruled out at this point.

Luis Severino – SP New York Yankees

The fact that it’s a low-grade strain is somewhat positive. That said, none of this is ideal, given the track record for health that Severino does not have. The Yankees’ rotation has been demolished by injuries already and the season hasn’t even started.

Paul Blackburn – SP Oakland Athletics

Great news that his nail is recovering nicely and that he’ll be able to throw again.

Austin Nola – C San Diego Padres

Apparently, Nola is a robot whose physical stature doesn’t get damaged like all of us. He’s already won the award for Spring Perseverance.

Juan Soto – OF San Diego Padres

It looks as if today is a big day for Soto, as it could determine his Opening Day status. Stay tuned.

Mitch Haniger – OF San Francisco Giants, Alex Cobb – SP San Francisco Giants

Haniger has been fighting to come back, but will ultimately start the season on the Injured List. That is not a surprise to anyone who has been following along his journey. As for Cobb, it’s great that his body responded well to his Saturday bullpen, so this is the next step forward. It’s unclear if he’ll be ready for Opening Day, as he may need time to ramp himself back up.

Wander Franco – SS Tampa Bay Rays

The team has yet to rule out Franco, as these favorable results spawn optimism. The team is hopeful that having three days off will give him what he needs to be ready. Stay tuned to see if this actually works.
