MLB Injury Report: Bryce Harper and Kyle Schwarber Both Injured?

Welcome to the Fantrax MLB Injury Report for Friday, June 28, 2024. In today’s edition, Bryce Harper injured his hamstring, Kyle Schwarber injured his groin, Carlos Correa injured his wrist, and Adley Rutschman injured his hand. All of that and so much more in today’s Injury Report from Fantrax.

MLB Injury Report for Friday, June 28, 2024.

Bryce Harper – 1B Philadelphia Phillies (hamstring)

Harper said that he felt his hamstring start to flare up while he was running up the line towards first base. Watching him struggle to put pressure on it afterward makes it seem significant, but time will tell. He himself said that this is his first soft-tissue injury so this is unknown territory for him. Stay tuned for updates today.

Kyle Schwarber – OF Philadelphia Phillies (groin)

Schwarber injured his groin in last night’s game on an errant throw. The hope is that this was done as a precaution, but it could be enough to keep him out of the lineup for at least the weekend. Of note, this was his second game in the past week in the outfield, so perhaps that was a contributor. Either way, we will know more soon enough.

Philadelphia Phillies – Team Update

Spencer Turnbull (lat) was placed on the Injured List yesterday, and his return doesn’t appear to be happening anytime soon. The team will want to take their time with him because they have postseason and World Series aspirations. As for Taijuan Walker (finger), he should be back much sooner, but just not before the All-Star Break. That being said, both of these injuries are big blows to an already depleted rotation. One has to wonder if they will look to bolster their starting pitching at the trade deadline.

Carlos Correa – SS Minnesota Twins (wrist)

Correa was hit on the wrist by a pitch in yesterday’s game. While the immediate numbness is somewhat alarming, the overall consensus here is good news as there is no break whatsoever. Consider him DTD with the possibility of him missing this weekend at worst.

Adley Rutschman – C Baltimore Orioles (hand)

This isn’t considered to be anything serious, but there was a mention post-game that he could miss today’s game if there is swelling overnight.

Cincinnati Reds – Team Update

Jake Fraley (calf) only has four at-bats this week and hasn’t played consistently in about a week. We should know more about the extent of his injury in the near future once the results of the MRI have been revealed. As for Jeimer Candelario (knee), his absences keep adding up. He may add to that total with a trip to the Injured List with an injury that continues to persist. Perhaps some time off will help alleviate the pain and push it into the background.

Gavin Williams – SP Cleveland Guardians (elbow)

The velocity, pitch count workload, and overall results are encouraging, but the walks and innings worked are things that will likely keep him in the minors rehabbing. Once he becomes as sharp as we’re accustomed to seeing from him, he should return.

Will Brennan – OF Cleveland Guardians (oblique)

There was no indication as to the level of severity on this oblique, but it is enough to warrant a trip to the Injured List. Chances are that he misses at least one month of action.

San Diego Padres – Team Update

Good news regarding Yu Darvish (elbow), as there was some concern about an inflamed elbow there. However, now with a clean slate, he may be able to return soon enough, though the team would be wise not to rush anything. As for Louis Arraez (hand), the hope is that his ouchie doesn’t escalate into an owsie after the oopsie he sustained.

San Francisco Giants – Team Update

Great news here on Alex Cobb (hip, shoulder), who has had a roller coaster ride of emotions going from injured to almost healthy and then having some setbacks. His original timeline of returning in the second half may come to fruition after all. As for Kyle Harrison (ankle), he will look to get back to the Giants soon enough, but will likely need a rehab assignment first.

Chicago Cubs – Team Update

A lot to unpack here. First, Javier Assad (forearm) headed to the Injured List after two weeks of pain. It was most evident in his last outing where he lasted just one inning while surrendering four runs and striking out no batters. The hope is that the All-Star Break will give them some extra time before having to make an even bigger decision. As for Ben Brown (neck), the team will take the cautious route here, as he is seen as a big piece of their future. There is a chance that he is suffering from a stress reaction, which could lead to significant time away. Stay tuned. Finally, Jordan Wicks (oblique) suffered a Grade 2 oblique strain, so his absence extending through the All-Star Break is no surprise.
