MLB Injury Report: Put These Big Bats Back Into Your Lineups!… maybe

Welcome to the Fantrax MLB Injury Report for Monday, June 10, 2024. In today’s edition, a lot of things have been left up in the air for tomorrow. Tyler O’Neill and Rafael Devers might return after a day off tomorrow, and the same can be said for Corey Seager and Nico Hoerner. Additionally, Trea Turner might be back this week while Juan Soto and Manny Machado could be back any day now. Essentially it’s the waiting game for some teams, which means it’s also the waiting game for fantasy owners in today’s Injury Report from Fantrax.

MLB Injury Report for Monday, June 10, 2024.

Juan Soto – OF New York Yankees (forearm)

It was a wild weekend of Juan Soto news. First, we learned about his imaging containing some inflammation, causing some concern regarding where he would be headed. Fortunately for him and the Yankees, it wasn’t considered major enough to warrant a trip to the Injured List. He then went through some workouts which included swinging a bat, but nothing from there was ever solidified as a big step forward. Finally, manager Aaron Boone made the statement that the team would have Soto available off the bench for Sunday’s game, but afterward, it was revealed that he probably wasn’t going to appear. The lesson here is twofold. One, don’t listen to Aaron Boone, and two, Soto is likely ready this week, but the exact date isn’t yet known.

Gerrit Cole – SP New York Yankees (elbow)

Cole wound up throwing 57 pitches in his last outing and struck out four batters. His lone run allowed came off a home run. He was able to throw all of his pitches and felt better and better as the game progressed.

Trea Turner – SS Philadelphia Phillies (hamstring)

Trea Turner is getting close to a return. He said that he feels more comfortable and loose, which is a far cry from how he felt weeks ago. He feels more confident in his body being able to return to full strength and playing the game effectively. Despite being away for so long, there is a legitimate chance that he avoids a rehab assignment altogether and joins the club this week. While it does feel a bit rushed, it’s good news nonetheless.

Tyler O’Neill – OF Boston Red Sox (knee)

The Red Sox believe that O’Neill not playing this weekend will give him enough time to come back at 100%. It remains to be seen if this is true, but fantasy owners need to be cognizant of the fact that a decision on his fate won’t be made until tomorrow.

Rafael Devers – 3B Boston Red Sox (knee)

This is something to monitor long-term. It doesn’t seem likely that Devers will head to the Injured List just yet, but if he can’t manage this properly, he just might.

Christian Encarnacion-Strand – 1B Cincinnati Reds (wrist)

Encarnacion-Strand received a second opinion on his wrist and was advised to rest for an additional five days. This contradicts what the team doctors had recommended, which was to start ramping up right away. This was one of the rare cases where a player opted to seek out an opinion to delay the progression. This could indicate that the problem is worse than we expected. Stay tuned.

Robbie Ray – SP San Francisco Giants (elbow)

This was a big step forward for Ray, who increased his workload from one inning the previous outing to two here. He’s looked effective, albeit against inferior competition, but he’s cleared every hurdle that’s been in his way.

Ty France – 1B Seattle Mariners (heel)

France will miss about a month or so with this injury and Tyler Locklear was called up as a result.

Edwin Diaz – RP New York Mets (shoulder), Francisco Alvarez – C New York Mets (thumb)

Both players have been rumored to being activated this Tuesday as they have been on the fast track to complete health. Of the two, it seems almost certain that Alvarez will be ready as predicted here. Diaz has had his original timeline bumped a bit, so there’s a chance that he will return later in the week. Either way, be prepared.

Nico Hoerner – 2B/SS Chicago Cubs (fractured hand)

This was the latest update from the weekend, though earlier it was revealed that he had a small fracture in his hand. What’s peculiar about the announcement is the fact that team doctors are comfortable with him trying to play through it and letting the swelling subside. With an off day today, we should know more tomorrow, as a trip to the Injured List is a big possibility. Stay tuned.

Manny Machado – 3B San Diego Padres (hip flexor)

Machado did take batting practice on Saturday and there was speculation that he would be back yesterday. Instead, he missed the remainder of his weekend series and will now look toward the Athletics. It is important to note too that he was apparently available to hit today, should the need have arisen. Stay tuned.

Alex Bregman – 3B Houston Astros (wrist)

It’s good news that Bregman’s X-rays came back negative. The second half of the post here is arguably the most important in that the ball missed the spot where he was just hit by a pitch. Either way, consider him DTD unless we hear otherwise.

Corey Seager – SS Texas Rangers (hamstring)

Another player listed here whose status won’t be updated until Tuesday. Stay tuned.
