MLB Injury Report – Two Down in Toronto

Welcome to the Fantrax MLB Injury Report for Thursday, July 11, 2024. In today’s edition, Yordan Alvarez has hip problems, the Phillies are playing it safe with Zack Wheeler, and the Blue Jays had a day to forget yesterday. All of this and so much more in today’s Injury Report from Fantrax.

MLB Injury Report for Thursday, July 11, 2024.

Yordan Alvarez – OF Houston Astros (hip)

Alvarez had already stolen second base prior to this, and he was already dealing with an injured knee. While there’s a chance that he misses a game or two, it doesn’t look like it’s serious enough to warrant a trip to the Injured List. That said, he is battered and bruised right now.

Bryce Harper – 1B Philadelphia Phillies (hand)

Harper missed yesterday’s game after injuring his hand from a Freddie Freeman line drive. The hope is that he can return and play later today.

Zack Wheeler – SP Philadelphia Phillies (back)

From the sounds of it, the team will likely hold him out until after the All-Star Break. The words “cautious” and “risk” seem to emphasize that having him return without being at full 100% health would be foolish.

Yimi Garcia – RP Toronto Blue Jays (elbow, neck)

This is now two days in a row where Garcia was unable to pitch because of neck stiffness. While it’s encouraging enough that he was able to throw a side session, this likely means that he won’t be returning to the Blue Jays until after the All-Star Break. The hope is that this neck ailment doesn’t turn into anything more serious than it already is.

Daulton Varsho – OF Toronto Blue Jays (leg)

Varsho landed and slid awkwardly while attempting to beat out an infield hit. The good news is that he was able to remain in the game for a while longer, so there’s a decent chance that this injury doesn’t put him on the Injured List at some point. It was later officially diagnosed as a leg contusion, so the hope is that he returns in short order.

Bo Bichette – SS Toronto Blue Jays (calf)

It was announced after the game that Bichette was undergoing an MRI on his calf and that the Blue Jays were considering calling somebody up to help with the club. This could mean a trip to the Injured List for Bichette, who has been nursing this for a while.

Gabriel Moreno – C Arizona Diamondbacks (back)

Seems like good news for Moreno as he will likely be playing in today’s game.

Giancarlo Stanton – OF New York Yankees (hamstring)

Stanton returning without a rehab assignment after the All-Star Break is vastly different news than what was projected for him about a week ago, but the news is good regardless. He has apparently been stimulating at-bats with the help of this machine, which is revolutionizing the way we think of rehab appearances.

Graham Ashcraft – SP Cincinnati Reds (elbow)

Ashcraft was originally optioned, but that was changed with this injury designation. He has struggled mightily this season and the strikeouts just haven’t been there for him. With a two-week shutdown period, it remains to be seen if he will throw again this season after that.

Joey Ortiz – INF Milwaukee Brewers (neck)

Ortiz is eligible to return this Friday, but he may just finish out the first half of the season on this rehab assignment and take into the second half next week. Stay tuned.

DL Hall – SP/RP Milwaukee Brewers (knee, forearm contusion)

Hall’s return will once again be delayed as he will be shut down for the foreseeable future.

Cincinnati Reds – Team Update

Matt McLain (shoulder) returning in September has been rumored for a while now. If he were to begin that rehab assignment on August 12, it would likely give him two weeks of gameplay before returning just before the calendar changes. As for Nick Martini (thumb), if all goes well, he could be back at some point in September. Finally, Jake Fraley (personal) is back after a family issue and all is wished well.

TJ Friedl – OF Cincinnati Reds (hamstring)

Good news here, as everything is looking good for Friedl, whose recent follow-up went about as smoothly as anyone would have wanted it to go.
