MLB Injury Report: Kyle Tucker on Crutches?

Welcome to the MLB Injury Report for Tuesday, June 4, 2024. In today’s edition, Kyle Tucker may have escaped a significant injury after fouling off a ball yesterday. Also, Francisco Alvarez has an estimated return date, and the Diamondbacks could get some reinforcements in their rotation soon. All that and more in today’s Injury Report from Fantrax.

MLB Injury Report for Tuesday, June 4, 2024.

Kyle Tucker – OF Houston Astros (shin)

Tucker fouled a ball off of his right shin in the same manner that he did years ago. The good news is that his X-rays came back negative and that nothing is broken. That said, he was in a significant amount of pain, and the chances of him returning to action today are slim. We should know more closer to game time regarding his imminent future and a projected timeline for a return.

Jose Urquidy – SP Houston Astros (elbow)

Absolutely brutal news here. Urquidy’s first Tommy John surgery was back in 2017, and this would undoubtedly keep him out of action until at least the beginning of the 2026 season. While nothing is yet official, whatever happens here will be a major and likely season-ending surgery to Urquidy, who struggled all last season. The Astros are in need of another starter.

Arizona Diamondbacks – Team Update

Massive update here with a lot of information. First, Geraldo Perdomo (knee) has now played in three games for the Diamondbacks’ Rookie Affiliate team and has one hit over eight at-bats. He seemingly has a ways to go before returning. As for Zac Gallen (hamstring) and Merrill Kelly (shoulder), both are taking big steps forward by beginning this throwing progression. That being said, Gallen will likely progress faster as his injury just happened recently. Finally, Alek Thomas (hamstring), is trending in the right direction, albeit slowly.

Los Angeles Angels – Team Update

Big update here, though not much relevance for fantasy in the short term. Anthony Rendon (hamstring) resuming baseball activities is a big step forward since his hamstring injury was a partial tear. He is a slow healer, so expectations need to be set here at a minimum. As for Mike Trout (knee), he will continue doing what he’s been doing, which is exercises that help stabilize his lower half. Finally, Brandon Drury (hamstring) might be in the final stages of his recovery before a rehab assignment. There is no timetable for a return, however.

Robert Gasser – SP Milwaukee Brewers (elbow)

Second opinions are rarely a good thing. He is one of their best young players and will likely be treated with kid gloves here. Depending on the outcome of this opinion, expect him to be out of action for a while. Stay tuned.

DL Hall – SP Milwaukee Brewers (knee)

This is one of the more confusing injuries to speculate on since Hall will be getting examined and then returning to the team. The meeting might just lay out a treatment plan, but could also have some sort of surgery on tap as well. We should have a clearer picture of what is to come after the meeting.

Jordan Romano – RP Toronto Blue Jays (elbow)

Romano is going through the motions similar to what he did earlier this year. The fact that he’ll have had two injections on two separate occasions within three months of each other is concerning for his long-term health.

Yariel Rodriguez – SP Toronto Blue Jays (back)

It looks like Rodriguez is slated to become a bullpen option for the Blue Jays upon his arrival back with the team. That said, given his workload increase here, chances are that he will be deployed as a long reliever.

Luis Arraez – 1B/2B San Diego Padres (shoulder)

The team doesn’t seem overly concerned regarding Arraez’s shoulder, but it’s worth noting that he did not enter last night’s game for whatever reason.

Masataka Yoshida – OF Boston Red Sox (thumb)

Yoshida has been accelerating his capabilities for the last little while since he announced that he is feeling better. There has been no indication as to how much or little his assignment will be in length, but one would venture to say at least a week.

Vaughn Grissom – 2B Boston Red Sox (hamstring)

Once the team knows the extent of the injury, they should be better able to gauge exactly how to deal with it and how to structure a timeline for a return. Until then, one can only speculate.

Ranger Suarez – SP Philadelphia Phillies (hand), Brandon Marsh – OF Philadelphia Phillies (hamstring)

This is great news for Suarez, whose major concern should be his readiness for this weekend’s series in London. The team will have to make a decision soon since he will be flying across the pond for this. If there are any issues, it would seem that Spencer Turnbull would get the start instead. As for Marsh, it would appear that his absence will be minimal in length.

Kris Bryant – 1B Colorado Rockies (back)

This is another example of Bryanbt’s inability to stay in the field. He has missed an incredible amount of time in his Rockies’ tenure with more to come.

Francisco Alvarez – C New York Mets (thumb)
