MLB Injury Report for Friday, May 17, 2024.

Taijuan Walker – SP Philadelphia Phillies (toe)

Walker got himself hit by a comebacker midway through his start on Thursday, and he was forced to leave the game early. He went in for X-rays and the results were listed above. There is still a chance that he will miss his next start or two with some time on the Injured List. Keep Spencer Turnbull in your back pocket as he could find his way back into the team’s rotation.

Emmet Sheehan – SP Los Angeles Dodgers (elbow)

Absolutely brutal news here for both Sheehan and the Dodgers. Sheehan has been on the Injured List all season long with a forearm strain and experienced setbacks while there. He will likely not be pitching until the 2026 season, as this will push back any progress he was set to have made for years.

J.P. Crawford – SS Seattle Mariners (hand, oblique)


Crawford was likely one game away from returning from an oblique injury but got hit in the hand by a pitch in that final game. Now, with a diagnosis unclear, he may miss extended time while recovering from his hand injury. There should be more details to follow, but this is an unfortunate series of events.

Kodai Senga – SP New York Mets (shoulder)


Great news here as Senga has taken yet another step forward with his recovery. He had been dealing with mechanical issues as of late, but those concerns are in the past. Now he seems destined for a rehab assignment to start anytime, though be warned that it will be a long one. Regardless of timing, this is all trending in the right direction for him and the Mets.

Branon Nimmo – OF New York Mets (illness)

Consider Nimmo DTD, but also be aware that there have been reports of this bug making its way through the clubhouse. Other Mets players may be sick in the coming days.

Byron Buxton – OF Minnesota Twins (knee)


Buxton just began his rehab on Wednesday but seems to be on track for a quick return to the Twins. If he has indeed played his final rehab game, he finishes 0-for-6 with three strikeouts and one run batted in, capping off an uneventful two-day sprint.

Sean Murphy – C Atlanta Braves (oblique)


This is a welcome sight for fantasy owners, as Murphy has been absent since Opening Day with this injury. It will likely be a lengthy rehab assignment given that he hasn’t played in such a long time.

Nico Hoerner – 2B Chicago Cubs (hamstring)


Hoerner went through a more vigorous pre-game warmup yesterday with running and agility drills. This is a stark difference from a day prior where Counsell said that he was instructed to do nothing at all. The team is taking things day-by-day and coming together through feedback from the trainers and the player himself. He has missed three days in a row now.
