MLB Injury Report – Astros Lose Their All-Star

Welcome to the Fantrax MLB Injury Report for Saturday, June 8, 2024. In today’s edition, Kyle Tucker is placed on the Injured List, Juan Soto might very well avoid it, and both Seiya Suzuki and Tyler O’Neill may revisit it soon enough. All of that and more in today’s Injury Report from Fantrax.

MLB Injury Report for Saturday, June 8, 2024.

Kyle Tucker – OF Houston Astros (shin)

Tucker apparently didn’t heal as well as he had hoped, and the decision was made to place him on the Injured List. This move is retroactive to Tuesday, June 4, so he is able to come off of the Injured List next Friday. The move also gave way to Joey Loperfido to return to the club. The hope is that this move is minimal in length and gives Tucker a chance to come back healthy soon.

Seiya Suzuki – OF Chicago Cubs (oblique)

The team was being extra cautious with his early removal from the game. That said, given his history with obliques, it was the safest and best choice to be made. There should be more announced today on his status, but chances are that he will miss the rest of this weekend’s series at Cincinnati to ensure that his past issues don’t resurrect themselves again.

Nico Hoerner – 2B Chciago Cubs (hand)

Hoerner got hit in the hand by a pitch on Thursday. He not only stayed in the game but was aggressive on the basepaths with a steal. It didn’t look significant at the time, but apparently, things felt bad enough yesterday that X-rays were warranted. It’s peculiar that the word inconclusive was used, but chances are that we get clarity today.

Tyler O’Neill – OF Boston Red Sox (knee)

The team has said that they need to be careful with this as it’s been a recurring problem for a while now. There is a legitimate chance that O’Neill ends up on the Injured List to give his knee a chance to fully heal itself.

Kodai Senga – SP New York Mets (shoulder)

Senga trending in the right direction is obviously a good thing. Fingers crossed that this time it’s for good.

Edwin Diaz – RP New York Mets (shoulder)

His weekend progress is one to monitor, but if all goes well, be prepared.

Jack Flaherty – SP Detroit Tigers (back)

Fantastic news here. Let’s hope it all goes well.

Juan Soto – OF New York Yankees (forearm)

Good news overall. His imaging came back clean while showing only inflammation. Soto himself said that his forearm hasn’t really bothered him too much, and we can see that his production on the field confirms that. While there’s always a chance that he aggravates it even further, for more it would appear that the Yankees have dodged a bullet.

Gerrit Cole – SP New York Yankees (elbow)

All eyes will be here to see if Cole can build on his first impressive start.

Manny Machado – 3B San Diego Padres (hip)

From the sounds of it, Machado is day-to-day and has not been running close to full strength. The hope is that he can avoid the Injured List, but it has not yet been ruled out of the question. The confusing part of anything is the pinch-hit that he had the day after the injury.

San Francisco Giants – Team Update

Robbie Ray threw one scoreless inning earlier in the week where he struck out three batters. Fingers crossed that he can successfully get through two innings here. Also, it’s definitely good news that Blake Snell (groin) is now throwing from flat ground. If he can advance to a mound as planned, he should be ready for a rehab assignment shortly afterward. That being said, because of the injuries and delays this season already, the team may slow-play his return to ensure that this doesn’t happen again. Finally, LaMonte Wade Jr. (hamstring) still has a lot of boxes to check before returning, but this is a good step forward.

Milwaukee Brewers – Team Update

It’s very odd that both DL Hall (knee) and Robert Gasser (elbow) are flat-out ignoring the opinions of these medical professionals. They didn’t get the answers that they wanted and are now picking and choosing one that suits their needs. Both players could see some setbacks or even some performance lapses in the future if they’re not careful. As for Gasser, there is no new structural damage in his elbow, but rather additional damage in the back of the elbow.

Corey Seager – SS Texas Rangers (hamstring)

Seager came in on Friday, did some jogging, and did some drills, but still didn’t feel quite right. The team isn’t overly concerned, but it’s definitely something to monitor. Manager Bruce Bochy said that he expects Seager to miss two to three days before returning.

Max Scherzer – SP Texas Rangers (back)

This will be Scherzer’s second time around trying to go through a rehab assignment. The hope is that he can do so unscathed. The team would be wise to slow-play this in order to avoid any serious injuries. The last time felt rushed and his body gave way.

Jacob deGrom SP Texas Rangers (elbow)

This is great news, as deGrom is beginning his ascension back to the Rangers’ rotation. His history with injuries suggests that the team will take things slowly and be extra cautious with him. That said, an August debut seems likely if all goes right.
