MLB Injury Report – March 4, 2023

Here is the Fantrax Injury Report for Saturday March 4, 2023.

The season is not here yet, but why not get a head start and jump in a Fantrax Classic Draft contest? Get a jump on the season with a Best Ball league or maybe a Draft and Hold. Or put some green on the line with a new season-long league to try and conquer. There’s no better time than now to get your baseball on!

James Paxton, SP, BOS

James Paxton tweaked his hamstring and will be day to day. The team has plenty of options within their rotation, so filling the spot shouldn’t be a problem. Paxton’s injury history makes this a curious one nonetheless.

Connor Wong, C, BOS

While a Grade 1 strain isn’t overly concerning, it’s something to monitor. Jorge Alfaro and Reese McGuire likely lead the way for all catching candidates.

Nick Senzel, OF, CIN

A positive sign that he’s progressed to this point, as he looks to be on his way to getting into real game action soon. Still, he’s been prone to suffering injuries over the years, so this isn’t something new.

Michael Brantley, OF, HOU

Michael Brantley’s absence from the team is nothing injury-related, but rather a personal matter. Here’s hoping all will be well and that he can be back to getting himself ready for the season soon.

A.J. Puk and Tanner Scott, RP, MIA

A.J. Puk recently suffered an abductor injury, while Tanner Scott had some biceps discomfort. Things seem to be trending in the right direction for both pitchers. Here they are back on the mound, taking the next step to being back in the mix for saves in Miami.

Nick Gordon, Inf/OF, MIN

Unfortunate news here, as Gordon hurt himself trying to make a throw to first base. This is something that would have likely placed him on the 10-day Injured List if it was during the season.

Jose Miranda, 1B/3B, MIN

Jose Miranda has been hampered by a sore shoulder, and he could be limited to begin the season.

Juan Soto, OF, SD

Juan Soto is still experiencing tightness in his calf and has been out of action for some time. While the team isn’t overly concerned with this situation, it’s definitely something to monitor.

Paul Goldschmidt, 1B, STL

Paul Goldschmidt is away from the team for a personal matter. Here’s to him and wishing him all the best.

Yandy Diaz, 1B/3B, TB

Yandy Diaz is suffering from a hip flexor that will sideline him for a few days. He isn’t expected to be back in the lineup until at least next Thursday.

Jon Gray, SP, TEX

Jon Gray’s start yesterday was scratched due to back tightness. It is a situation worth noting due to his history of injuries.

Vladimir Guerrero Jr., 1B, TOR

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. left yesterday’s game with right knee discomfort. While this isn’t considered serious at all, it’s something to monitor despite his clean bill of health while in the majors. Still, he’s likely to be fine and will be in the World Baseball Classic soon enough.

Mitch White, RP, TOR

Mitch White will take a big step forward this weekend to see how ready he can and will be for the start of the season.
