MLB Injury Report: More Pitcher Injuries, Plus a Bit of Good News

Here is the MLB Fantrax Injury Report for Thursday, April 18, 2024. Down below, you’ll see a lot of injury news on pitchers that unfortunately cannot stay healthy: Yu Darvish with his neck, Eduardo Rodriguez has his designation changed and Robert Stephenson has his season over and done with. All of that and so much more in today’s Injury Report from Fantrax.

MLB Injury Report for Thursday, April 18, 2024.

This was a promising start for Bradish, who was making his first rehab appearance. Throwing 44 pitches with that velocity was a good sign. Reports came in the day after stating that he felt great and was looking forward to making his next appearance. This was the first start and he will likely need at least two more before making his debut for Baltimore.

Robert Stephenson – RP Los Angeles Angels

We will know more details today, but this is a very disappointing outcome. It would appear that Carlos Estevez is the clear-cut closer with not a lot of competition in sight.

Brett Baty – 3B New York Mets

Great news in that it would appear that Baty will avoid the Injured List. With the Mets not playing today, he will get an extra day of rest before a weekend series that he hopes to participate in at some point.

Tyler O’Neill – OF Boston Red Sox

Be sure to keep O’Neill out of your lineups as it’s looking like he won’t return as expected.

Garrett Whitlock – SP Boston Red Sox

The fact that Whitlock tried to fight the team to let him play could mean that he will miss the minimum number of games and be back soon enough. Here’s hoping that his passion and desire to play don’t interfere with proper healing. All that being said, there are reports of this being precautionary in measure.

Kris Bryant – 1B Colorado Rockies

Both Bryant and the Rockies were hopeful that the Injured List could be avoided, but alas, here we are. Bryant is a slow healer, as indicated by his plantar fasciitis issues from last year. We shall see if he will be ready when he’s first eligible to return next week.

Justin Verlander – SP Houston Astros

Be prepared.

Eduardo Rodriguez – SP Arizona Diamondbacks

The team’s slow playing his injury, and was a key reason for this transfer over to the 60-day Injured List. Lovullo also said later on that he expects Rodriguez to return sometime in June.

Yoan Moncada – 3B Chicago White Sox

Moncada was originally set to miss the remainder of the season but now seems poised to return at some point past the All-Star Break.

Yu Darvish – SP San Diego Padres

Darvish said that his neck started hurting just before his last start. He said that it wasn’t an overall bad feeling, but this designation gives him two weeks to get better.

Jake Cronenworth – 1B San Diego Padres

Interesting comments were made here the other day. Shildt indicated that Cronenworth’s injury is not necessarily a calf injury, but perhaps more of a hamstring injury. He also noted that the team is still in the process of figuring things out. While the team doesn’t foresee this as a long-term issue, it is somewhat concerning that all is not known and that it could be a multiple-body-part issue. All that being said, the team hopes that with today’s day off, he will be ready to go for the weekend.

Jameson Taillon – SP Chicago Cubs

Be prepared.

Gerrit Cole – SP New York Yankees

Cole continues to slowly progress forward and succeed with every step he takes. Throwing on back-to-back days is a big way to move forward and will only help him as he builds himself up to a starter’s workload. Keep in mind that none of this has in any way shape or form moved his debut date closer to what it is.
