MLB Injury Report – Good News on Corbin Carroll… and More Bad News

Welcome to the Fantrax MLB Injury Report for Tuesday, June 18, 2024. In today’s edition, we get a timeline for Mookie Betts, we get clearance for Corbin Carroll, and we get a ton of decisions needed by the Blue Jays. All of that and so much more in today’s Injury Report from Fantrax.

MLB Injury Report – Tuesday, June 18, 2024.

Corbin Carroll – OF Arizona Diamondbacks (side)

A bit of good news to start today’s report, as Carroll’s MRI came back clean. As such, he is en route to rejoining the team in Washington for their series at the Nationals. Fantasy owners can breathe a big sigh of relief as the recently surging Carroll can try to keep the momentum going. Since June 5, he is batting .318 with three stolen bases.

Mookie Betts – 2B/SS/OF Los Angeles Dodgers

We now have a timeline in mind for the length of Betts’ injury. Whether or not he returns to hitting as well as he had beforehand is a question due to the fact that wrist and hand injuries tend to sap power. That being said, an early August return looks to be in the cards here.

San Francisco Giants – Team Update

Big update here. Both Alex Cobb (hip, shoulder) and Triston Beck (arm) have been working on increasing their intensities of throws. Of the two, Cobb is expected to return first, as he has been throwing bullpens and feeling good coming out of them. His last outing was a 35-pitch session. Blake Snell (groin) is slated to throw a three-inning outing, and he continues to feel better and better with each passing day. Finally, Robbie Ray (elbow) surrendered three runs in just 1.2 innings of work in his last rehab outing but did strike out three batters. He felt well afterward and he could progress to a more difficult level of competition after this next outing.

Miami Marlins – Team Update

Sandy Alcantara (Tommy John) continues to rehab, and while that’s a very vague statement, it just means that he has had no setbacks. As for Edward Cabrera (shoulder), he will need to advance to live batters before heading out on a rehab assignment. There has been no indication on when that will happen. Finally, Sixto Sanchez (shoulder) is apparently feeling much better, but the team will likely take things slowly with him.

David Hamilton – SS Boston Red Sox (side)

Cora also said that Hamilton was feeling it before the game too, which is something that would have been useful to know then. It’s hard to gauge whether or not Hamilton will head to the Injured List as the Red Sox (specifically Cora) have been too optimistic about other injuries. Stay tuned.

Mike Tauchman – OF Chicago Cubs (groin)

Tauchman should be considered DTD for now until we know more. He will likely be sent for some sort of imaging to ensure there is no serious injury here. Stay tuned for updates.

Jacob deGrom – SP Texas Rangers (Tommy John Surgery)

Jacob deGrom continues to slowly progress as he makes his way back from Tommy John Surgery. He’s on track to debut late in the season.

Max Scherzer – SP Texas Rangers (back)

The likelihood of him returning is this weekend. Be prepared.

Yu Darvish – SP San Diego Padres (groin)

This is great news for Darvish and for Padres fans. His turnaround from injured to healthy is usually quick, so this could be a one-and-done sort of situation here.

Gerrit Cole – SP New York Yankees (elbow)

Be prepared.

Anthony Rizzo – 1B New York Yankees (arm fracture)

Absolutely brutal news here for Rizzo who has been so banged up with injuries for the past two years. This will cost him at least the next month of action. For now, DJ LeMahieru and Oswaldo Cabrera will get the bulk of playing time reps, while prospect Ben Rice is rumored to make the jump.

William Contreras – C Milwaukee Brewers (concussion)

Contreras avoided the worst and was available off the bench last night. While he didn’t end up playing, this bodes well for a return in the next day or two.

Michael Wacha – SP Kansas City Royals (foot)

Wacha looked great in his first rehab start. A reminder that this is an injury to his foot and not his arm, so he should be good to return as long as he can plant and use that foot as well as he had in the past.

TJ Friedl – OF Cincinnati Reds (hamstring)

Nice report here on Friedl, as he has a full range of motion with his hamstring with full strength as well. As worded here, the trust level of what players say right after an injury in a game is minimal because everyone feels ready to go. It’ll be interesting to see how he feels after a night of rest.

Toronto Blue Jays – Team Update

Lots to unpack here with some updates. First, Yimi Garcia (elbow) was later placed on the Injured List with ulnar nerve symptoms. He is set to miss at least fifteen days here, and the possibility of more is there as well. As for Jordan Romano (elbow), he extended his throwing distance with the hope of throwing from a mound tomorrow. He seems to be progressing well after his injection, but a reminder of that being his second injection in a matter of months. Finally, Yariel Rodriguez (back) looks to be activated on Friday. He has looked increasingly better in every rehab start that he has made.

Bo Bichette – SS Toronto Blue Jays (calf)

Bichette has now missed three games with this injury, and the decision of whether or not to place him on the Injured List is looming.
