MLB Injury Report for Monday, April 1, 2024

Eloy Jiménez – UT Chicago White Sox

Jiménez injured himself while running out a ground ball that he hit. He wound up gingerly hobbling to first base and missed the rest of the game. He has a long history of injuries, so this shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone. All that being said, we should know more today about his availability going forward. Hopefully, he won’t miss much time.

Toronto Blue Jays – Team Update

There is a lot to get to here. Swanson throwing a side session here is good news, though there wasn’t an indication of how many pitches he threw or the velocity readings. Regardless, he is progressing upward. Romano playing catch is great to see as well. His time on the Injured List is projected to be minimal, though he will need to begin ramping up soon. Jansen hitting off a tee is promising as he recovers from a fracture in his wrist. As for Votto, there hasn’t been much of an update at all.

Bo Bichette – SS Toronto Blue Jays

The team didn’t offer much in the way of news after the game, so chances are that he is the truest sense of a DTD player. Until we hear otherwise, he should be ready to play within the next day or so.

Justin Steele – SP Chicago Cubs

Steele exited his last game early with a hamstring strain. Luckily for him, it was of the mildest of grades, meaning he didn’t suffer anything too serious. Still, he will miss a significant chunk of time here with an expected return of May being in the cards. Assuming no delays or setbacks, a four-week minimum absence is something that the Cubs will need to fill. They hope that their farm system can shoulder the load.

Kenley Jansen – RP Boston Red Sox

This was an interesting interview, to say the least. Jansen is frustrated with himself and the situation. He said that he wanted to go out there, but his body wouldn’t allow it. He believed that missing a day or two now would help preserve his body and prevent a trip to the Injured List. Whether or not he’s ready to go out there next time there’s a save situation is tough to predict. Until he heads to the Injured List, which he might, he needs to be started. That being said, the team needs to make a decision about him and commit either way.

Nick Lodolo – SP Cincinnati Reds

This was originally part of the plan for Lodolo and the Reds, and it seems to be falling into place. Continue to have April 10 circled on your calendar.

Mitch Garver – C/UT Seattle Mariners

Garver has missed all weekend with back spasms. The good news is that he doesn’t foresee this lingering to the point where he needs a trip to the Injured List.

Walker Buehler – SP Los Angeles Dodgers

This was a very promising start for Buehler, who looked right at home on the mound. He threw everything that he had, he threw with velocity and he got hitters to chase pitches. This first start was about him getting out there and performing. There should be nothing to worry about concerning stats. Be happy and know that he’s closer to returning than he was before this start.

Kyle Bradish – SP Baltimore Orioles

Nothing substantial here, other than the fact that Bradish threw all of his pitches. It’s promising that he feels good, though a day or two afterward will be a better indicator of how his health going forward.

Alek Thomas – OF Arizona Diamondbacks

The team will know more when imaging is done later today. Stay tuned.

Lars Nootbaar – OF St. Louis Cardinals

Nootbaar is slowly progressing here with incremental steps in the right direction. With the plan being that he is to play on Tuesday and Wednesday, the team should have a better feel for whether or not he’ll return on Thursday when he’s first eligible to do so. Chances are that they slowly prepare his debut, but nothing is set in stone.

Edward Cabrera – SP Miami Marlins

This was a very promising start for Edard Cabrera, who physically felt good throughout and was able to get his fastball velocity up. The problem here was the command, as he did walk four batters. While he feels great physically, one has to wonder if they’ll keep him on the rehab start even when healthy to try and limit the walks. This was an off-season goal of the Marlins with him.
