MLB Injury Report for Tuesday, April 2, 2024.

Josh Jung – 3B Texas Rangers

Jung has had such bad luck concerning injuries. First, he missed time because of a thumb ailment to finish the 2023 season. Then, as soon as camp opened up this spring, he suffered a calf injury that cost him about a month of preparation. Now, with a fracture in his wrist, he’s bound to miss at least a month of the 2024 season. Rehabbing from these types of injuries can take a while to regain power too.

Alex Cobb – SP San Francsico Giants

There is no word on the length of this bullpen, but it’s still a good sign. He is still on track to return well before his original diagnosis would have suggested.

Seattle Mariners – Team Update

Big update here. First, Matt Brash mixing in a wide array of fastballs and breaking balls is good, and he will throw a bullpen later in the week. As for Gregory Santos, his MRI looked good. He will begin a progressional throwing program later in the week, though no timetable has been put in place. Finally, Bryan Woo resuming throwing is a great sign for him as he works to make his debut sooner rather than later. The team was adamant again that this was not a long-term injury but he will begin to ramp up slowly and carefully.

Alek Thomas – OF Arizona Diamondbacks

As expected, Thomas will head to the Injured List with a strained left hamstring. It was revealed that it was a high Grade 1 ailment, which would suggest a longer time away than the ten-day minimum. As you can see from the list above, the quality of players on the Injured List for the Diamondbacks is growing and significant.

Toronto Blue Jays – Team Update

There is a lot to digest here. First, Jordan Romano throwing a bullpen later today reinforces the preseason sentiment that his absence on the Injured List would not be long-term. That being said, he will still need to do this successfully and without any pain or setbacks. As for Erik Swanson, he has now thrown successfully on both Saturday and Monday, with both sessions going well. This shows that he is trending in the right direction. Manoah has a big day ahead of him today, as three innings is a lot of work for him and his shoulder. If his body responds well here, he could see a rehab assignment soon enough. Joey Votto’s defensive work is the first real update that there has been, so it has to be considered a good thing. Finally, Bo Bichette missed another game last night, but he responded well to some treatment throughout the day yesterday.

Eloy Jimenez – UT Chicago White Sox

After having an MRI, it was determined that Jimenez did not need a trip to the Injured List. The White Sox believe that he just needs some time on his own to heal and get better. The good news is that he has avoided anything major.

Miami Marlins – Team Update

Of note here, Braxton Garrett throwing 50 pitches is a great sign that he is closer to making his debut. As noted, however, he will begin his extended spring later today which could take some time. Eury Perez throwing a bullpen is also a good sign since Saturday’s bullpen was his first time on the mound. That means he felt fine afterward and is ready to do it again.

Dylan Carlson – OF St. Louis Cardinals

The hope was that Carlson would be back doing some form of baseball activity by now. When he received the injection, he was to be shut down for two to three days before beginning to ramp up. As of this morning, it will have been four days, which could suggest that he is behind schedule. Keep an eye on this to see if there is something more than just a minor delay.

Justin Verlander – SP Houston Astros

The plan was for him to throw these three innings today to move on to a rehab assignment next. We should get further clarification as to what’s next soon enough, as the team likely wants to see how his body responds to yesterday’s activity. Stay tuned.
