MLB Injury Report for Saturday, March 30, 2024

Rafael Devers – 3B Boston Red Sox

Cora said that Devers didn’t feel well throughout the entire day. During his workouts and BP, Devers said that he felt stiff, so the decision was made to take him out and “be safe about it”. The hope is that he will come into the clubhouse on Saturday and that things will be better. Stay tuned.

Juan Soto – OF New York Yankees

Soto was adamant that he would play in today’s game. He rolled his ankle last night and that’s why he was being attended to by trainers. The hope is that he is correct and that he can get back in there. Consider him DTD until we hear otherwise.

Gleyber Torres – 2B New York Yankees

Very good news that the X-rays came back negative. Torres himself said that it hurt and that he was worried about a fracture or break. That being said, he does feel better, which is great. Chances are that he misses another game or two before coming back, though nothing has been solidified.

Mitch Garver – UT Seattle Mariners

Garver was taken out of the Mariners lineup unexpectedly, and it turns out that it was because of back spasms. While it’s good news that he doesn’t foresee himself being held out of the lineup for long, it’s important to note that he does have an extensive injury history. For now, consider him DTD.

Kevin Gausman – SP Toronto Blue Jays

It’s fair to expect him to start for the Blue Jays before the end of Monday, which is great news. It’s unclear if he will be on a pitch count in his 2024 debut.

Danny Jansen – C Toronto Blue Jays

Jansen seems to be on the right track for a return, though the news above doesn’t accelerate his timeline. Rather, it’s just the next logical step in his progression. The hope is to have him back in the lineup by the beginning of May, as his history with injuries suggests that he is a quick healer.

Dylan Carlson – OF St. Louis Cardinals

We should know more about how well Carlson’s injection worked in the next few days. Stay tuned.

Sonny Gray – SP St. Louis Cardinals

It seems that we can seemingly put Gray’s Spring Training hamstring strain behind us as of Wednesday. Fingers crossed that it doesn’t resurface.

Tommy Edman – 2B/SS/OF St. Louis Cardinals

Edman continues to be on a slow path to recovery, and the hope is that this Wednesday’s MRI will take him to the next step. While it was originally believed that he would miss the first month of the season, there is a chance that he won’t return until at least the middle of May, even with good news this week. He will likely need a rehab assignment before making his 2024 debut.

Lars Nootbaar – OF St. Louis Cardinals

How Nootbaar handled the pain here will be a big indicator of how close he is to returning. Fingers crossed that it all works out well.

Royce Lewis – 3B Minnesota Twins

This is a major blow to the Twins and Lewis himself. He will need one month of recovery and then there’s the possibility of him resuming baseball activities. That’s a tough pill to swallow since there’s no guarantee that he will be ready next month. It’s just the latest in a rash of injuries that have halted the progression of Lewis who has superstar potential. He just can’t stay on the field to fulfill his legacy. Austin Martin got promoted as a replacement for him, while Kyle Farmer will see extra playing time too.

Sean Murphy – C Atlanta Braves

Murphy left the game after experiencing pain from a swing. It was later revealed that he had suffered an oblique injury. He is already on the Injured List, with Travis d’Arnaud taking on lead catcher duties. There is an MRI slated today to determine the severity of the ailment. Most obliques take at least four weeks to heal, but those are of the lowest Grade possible. Stay tuned.

Miami Marlins – Team Update

Of note here, Cabrera throwing a 20-pitch bullpen is a good sign of him progressing toward what should be a rehab assignment. No ETA has been set just yet for him. As for Garrett, this is a big weekend for him to see how his body responds to throwing two days apart and with bigger bulks of pitches. Finally, Perez is the farthest back of the aforementioned pitchers. He continues to stretch himself out and is trying to get back to throwing from a mound. The team will take their time with him.

Walker Buehler – SP Los Angeles Dodgers

Great news here, as Buehler will be on the mound for the first of four rehab starts. It will be interesting to see how he handles this during the game and how his body responds afterward. Either way though, this is a promising development.

Kodai Senga – SP New York Mets

It’s great to see that Senga’s progress has been good and steady. Within a week we should have more information on where he is headed concerning a throwing program and a potential 2024 debut. Stay tuned.

Alex Cobb – SP San Francisco Giants

It’s looking more and more like Cobb will be ready to go once he’s eligible to come off of the Injured List on April 9. Regardless of when, it seems like it will be early in the season, which is fantastic news given how quickly he’s recovered.
