MLB Injury Report: No Story-book Ending in Boston

Here is the Fantrax MLB Injury Report for Wednesday, April 10, 2024. Inside, you’ll see the latest on Trevor Story’s season-ending surgery, Framber Valdez’s elbow, and a scary situation for the Phillies with J.T. Realmuto. All that and more in today’s Injury Report from Fantrax.

MLB Injury Report for Wednesday, April 10, 2024.

Yoan Moncada – 3B Chicago White Sox

The video of the injury is hard to watch, as Moncada pulls up limp and hobbles his way just short of first base. He had been battling a groin injury before this injury, and it looks like his body just gave up. He will likely head to the Injured List, depleting this White Sox lineup even further. Anyone reading this is highly advised to stream as many pitchers against this lineup as possible.

Framber Valdez – SP Houston Astros

This wasn’t a surprise, as it was reported that Valdez was injured a day earlier. The team hopes that he will only miss a few starts and then return since there hasn’t been any news on damage to the ligament itself. He will be shut down for a few days to help the inflammation go away. After that, he will be re-evaluated, at which time we should have a better idea regarding a diagnosis and a timeline.

Devin Williams – RP Milwaukee Brewers

The move here was done as a procedural one to open up a roster spot. This doesn’t change his original timeline of a mid-June return whatsoever.

Jhoan Duran – RP Minnesota Twins

Some good news here, as Duran is feeling better and ready to pitch. He said himself that he doesn’t feel pain in his oblique, which could indicate that a return is on its way. Either way, he is hopefully in the home stretch of his recovery process.

Kyle Bradish – SP Baltimore Orioles

Terrific news here, as it looks like Bradish is just about ready to get into game action. The original timeline set out by Baltimore staff was early in the first half of the season. Any rehab assignment now would likely lead to a mid-May debut for the Orioles.

Josiah Gray – SP Washington Nationals

Gray’s tendon looks good and the team will give him some time off to rest and get himself right. The team wants to strengthen the muscle and keep the tendon strong before returning. Gray himself said that he didn’t feel the greatest while playing catch, and the hope is that it was this admission to pain that will keep the injury at a minimum.

Trevor Story – SS Boston Red Sox

Story will miss the rest of the season with an unfortunate injury. He said in an interview that he heard the shoulder dislocate itself while he landed on it retrieving the baseball. It is a disappointing end to a season for a player who had spent so much time on the field while with the Rockies. Since arriving in Boston, he’s suffered injuries all over his body and hasn’t been able to contribute in the way that both he and the Red Sox imagined. Here’s hoping that he can somehow pull himself together and be the player he wants to be next season.

Nick Pivetta – SP Boston Red Sox

There was an initial fear that Pivetta’s injury would be serious, causing him to miss an extended amount of time. Now, it would appear that this ailment won’t keep him out of action for too long. Described as “mild”, this report has his absence at around the three-week mark, which could be surprising. While anything can happen, the team doesn’t foresee this to be a major concern. There was some speculation that Josh Winckowski was being stretched out yesterday to be ready as a starter for the team. While nothing is confirmed, it’s something to keep in mind.

Vaughn Grissom – 2B Boston Red Sox

Grissom could gain multi-positional eligibility soon after debuting this season. Doing this would only add to his value going forward. It’s been noted too that he will begin a rehab assignment this weekend.

Toronto Blue Jays – Team Update

Both Romano and Swanson will begin their rehab tomorrow. It would appear that Romano is the one who is on track to return first, but both are expected back before May. As for Jansen, he’s always been a quick healer. Once he gets to his rehab assignment, chances are that it’s short and sweet if his bat is ready.

J.D. Martinez – UT New York Mets

Martinez has had back problems for quite a while now. It has gotten to the point where an injection was needed to help the pain. With him being shut down for the next few days and needing a full ramp-up, likely, we won’t see him make his debut until the beginning of May, at the earliest.

Max Scherzer – SP Texas Rangers

This is fantastic news. If all goes well here, he could beat his projected timeline of June and be ready sometime in May. Fingers crossed.

Chase Silseth – SP Los Angeles Angels, Robert Stephenson – RP Los Angeles Angels

We should know more about Silseth in the coming days, but his immediate placement on the Injured List makes it seem like this is a serious issue. As for Stephenson, his return would likely put him as the team’s setup man once he is completely ready to go. As it stands, Carlos Estevez has pitched well and has the closer position locked down.

J.T. Realmuto – C Philadelphia Phillies

It was a scary situation, as Realmuto took a pitch off of his neck in the area of the throat. He was in a lot of pain and will be evaluated today. We should know more about the situation later today, and the hope is that he will be okay. Stay tuned.
