Welcome to the Fantrax MLB Injury Report for Wednesday, June 12, 2024. In today’s report, Bryan Woo got some ominous news, Ben Brown will miss some time on the Injured List, J.T.

MLB Injury Report for Wednesday, June 12, 2024.

Bryan Woo – SP Seattle Mariners (arm)

Woo was set to start last night’s game but was scratched due to soreness in his arm. It began a day prior where he wasn’t feeling as well as he should have, so the team decided to have an MRI done to determine the next steps. Keep in mind, that he missed time due to soreness in his elbow earlier in the season. This has an ominous tone to it and could lead to something significant. While it’s tough to speculate so soon, fantasy owners should be planning to be without the young star for quite a while as a worst-case scenario. Stay tuned.

Randy Arozarena – OF Tampa Bay Rays (hamstring)

Arozarena missed last night’s game after being a late scratch to the lineup. It was revealed that he is managing some hamstring tightness. From the sounds of things, he could be back in the lineup tomorrow.

Ben Brown – SP Chicago Cubs (neck)

Brown will miss the next two weeks with a neck issue that has been bothering him for quite a while. Luckily he was able to not just pitch through it, but also do so at an elite level. For now, his absence should be considered minimal, but over the next few days, we should be given more updates to confirm the severity.

Nico Hoerner – 2B/SS Chicago Cubs (fractured hand)

While it’s good to see Hoerner able to do the exercises required to show progress, it’s baffling to see that he has still not been placed on the Injured List. There is something broken in his hand, yet the team wants him to push through. Even if he returns to the lineup, his performance is something to monitor, as who knows how well he can actually hit.

J.T. Realmuto – C Philadelphia Phillies (knee)

Realmuto will miss approximately one month of action due to a knee injury that has been plaguing him for weeks on end. His results at the plate have sunk, and thus the decision was made to do this operation now. With the playoffs in mind and a World Series as their end goal, getting the operation done now and through the All-Star Break makes the most sense.

Christian Encarnacion-Strand – 1B Cincinnati Reds (wrist)

Encarnacion-Strand had been looking for a second opinion, something that he himself asked for and not the team. The injury must be a significant one, possibly even more serious than anyone previously imagined. A decision will be made in the coming days, but the chances of him returning are slim to none. Even if he doesn’t get the season-ending surgery, significant time sway is to expected and his production when he returns could be less than what was expected in the spring.

Jurickson Profar – OF San Diego Padres (knee)

Profar had his knee buckle on a swing-and-miss, which caused him to leave mid-game. Afterward, it was revealed that it was a re-aggravation of an injury he had been working through for quite a while. For now, consider him DTD with the hopes of returning this week.

Taylor Ward – OF Los Angeles Angels (back)

There should be more extensive updates on this situation. For now, consider Ward DTD, with a minimal shot at playing today.

St. Louis Cardinals – Team Update

Tommy Edman (wrist) hitting a full BP is a big step forward for him. It is something that has been delayed for quite some time but is monumental in that he can begin working his way back into games. When that happens is anyone’s guess as he has taken much longer to return than expected. As for Contreras, having him start a rehab assignment within a week has to be considered positive and exciting for fantasy owners and Cardinals fans everywhere.

Boston Red Sox – Team Update

Wilyer Abreu (ankle) seems to be almost fully recovered from an ankle injury that has kept him out of action for the last little while. It’s unclear if he will require a rehab assignment, but from the sounds of things he will not need one. As for Vaughn Grissom (hamstring), there is no timetable, but at least he’s progressing to some baseball activities. Finally, Triston Casas (side) was hoping to swing a bat, but he has not been cleared to do so. This should be considered a slight setback, though him doing so now was believed to be such an aggressive step forward.

Los Angeles Dodgers – Team Update

Bobby Miller (shoulder) has had an up-and-down rehab assignment, but his last outing was not only effective but also long in nature. That has given the team enough confidence to move forward should he be able to perform effectively yet again. As for Kershaw (shoulder), he could very well start a rehab assignment in a week or so and be back with the team just after the All-Star Break. That said, his return will likely be slow-played regardless of how well he looks and feels.

Zac Gallen – SP Arizona Diamondbacks (hamstring)

The good news here for Gallen is that a timeline seems to be set. It remains to be seen if he will need a rehab assignment, but due to the length of time away so far, chances are that he will.

Corey Seager – SS Texas Rangers (hamstring)

This was a very vague update on Seager. It was an answer that used a lot of words but didn’t really say much in the process. The only thing to gather from this situation is that he likely won’t play today either, since nothing of that nature was hinted at here.
