Welcome to the MLB Injury Report for Saturday, June 22, 2024. In today’s edition, there is information on Fernando Tatis Jr.’s injury scare, Bo Bichette’s next step and Max Muncy’s slow progression. All of that and more in today’s Injury Report from Fantrax.

MLB Injury Report for Saturday, June 22, 2024.

Fernando Tatis Jr. – OF San Diego Padres (elbow)

Tatis Jr. was hit by a pitch on the elbow and left the game on Friday. The good news is that it is a contusion and nothing more. He should be considered DTD for now until we’re told otherwise. Tatis Jr. owners can breathe easy.

Jurickson Profar – OF San Diego Padres

The hope here is that Profar didn’t do even more damage to his already injured knee. That would derail what was otherwise a successful bounce-back season for the veteran. Stay tuned.

Arizona Diamondbacks – Team Update

Gabriel Moreno (thumb) was pulled late in the game after injuring it while sliding. It’s good news that the x-rays came back negative and that he has all but avoided something serious. As for Lourdes Gurriel Jr. (elbow), he injured himself during an at-bat, but with no x-rays needed, he has likely avoided anything serious as well. The belief is that both players will avoid the Injured List.

Gleyber Torres – 2B New York Yankees (groin)

This news is reassuring to the fact that Torres was pulled in an overly cautious move. It seems like he will return to the Yankees lineup any day now, and rumors are that he was available on Friday. That said, if things start to linger, then we may have a problem.

Miami Marlins – Team Update

Edward Cabrera (shoulder) struck out four batters in that outing, and his velocity and full arsenal were all intact. His next outing will be based on improving his workload. As for Bryan Hoeing (hamstring), his last outing was his fourth, and that was the only one where he struggled. He looks close to being ready to return nonetheless. Finally Jesus Luzardo (back) experienced tightness in his back in his last start and may require a trip to the Injured List if this persists. For now, he could pitch next week, but nothing has been finalized.

Wilyer Abreu – OF Boston Red Sox (ankle)

Though this is speculation, fantasy owners should be prepared for his return sooner rather than later.

Bo Bichette – SS Toronto Blue Jays (calf)

This is good news, as there was no news on any progress regarding Bichette. The fact that he is not only taking part in baseball activities but also targeting a return date is good news. Hopefully, this comes true and he is back early next week.

Max Scherzer – SP Texas Rangers (back)

This news came out of nowhere, and more details need to come. This puts a dent in the plans of fantasy teams that have Scherzer in any H2H leagues. It might be best to sit him this weekend regardless of the outcome of this evaluation.

Josh Jung – 3B Texas Rangers (wrist)

In four games this week, Jung has gone 4-for-17 with five strikeouts and no walks. Regardless of performance there, he is very close to being ready to return to the Rangers. Your chance to buy-low on him is likely gone, but still worth a shot.

Patrick Sandoval – SP Los Angeles Angels (forearm)

Sandoval himself said that the pain he felt was like nothing he had ever felt before. It was also noted that everything seemed ominous and negative with no optimism whatsoever. There is a legitimate shot that he requires immediate season-ending surgery. Stay tuned.

Tyler Stephenson – C Cincinnati Reds (undisclosed)

It’s hard to make sense of injuries when they are undisclosed like this. More should be known in the coming days. Stay tuned.

Max Muncy – 3B Los Angeles Dodgers

As stated, Muncy has a long way to go before returning from an oblique injury that has kept him out of action for quite some time. He has just started taking ground balls, which is a minor step forward. It’s quite possible that he doesn’t return until August.
