Garrett Cooper (MIA) – Cooper’s season is done as he’ll undergo surgery to repair a tear of his UCL in his non-throwing elbow.
Rafael Devers (BOS) – Devers experienced some quad tightness in the second game of Wednesday’s doubleheader. He’ll likely receive an off day on Thursday.

Last Update: July 21, 5:00 am ET
Justin Turner (R) (R) (LAD) – Turner took a pitch to the knee and remained in Tuesday’s game for a couple innings, but was ultimately replaced by Matt Beaty (L) (L). It sounds as if he’ll receive an off day on Wednesday and then be re-evaluated later in the next couple days.
Max Muncy (L) (R) (L) (R) (LAD) – Like his teammate, Muncy was also hit in the pitch and departed with a contusion in his shoulder. It sounds like he’ll also be off on Wednesday but the Dodgers might see how he’s feeling prior to Wednesday’s game.

Last Update: July 20, 7:20 pm ET
Zach Eflin (R) (R) (PHI) - The Phillies don't believe this will be a long-term injury, but Eflin has hit the injured list with patellar tendinitis in his right knee. It's worth noting Eflin has a long history of injuries in this same knee.
Spencer Turnbull (R) (R) (DET) - Turnbull's 2021 has come to end as it's been announced he will undergo Tommy John surgery. Turnbull had the highest of highs this year throwing a no-hitter and now the lowest of low's with his season-ending with the dreaded TJ surgery.
Danny Duffy (L) (L) (KC) - This guy just can't stay healthy. He just came off the IL on June 23rd and due to a left flexor strain, he's back on. He was being brought up in trade rumors, but this smushes that.

Carlos Carrasco (R) (R) (NYM) – Carrasco is set to make his final rehab start on Tuesday and if all goes well he could rejoin the Mets this weekend. He hasn’t been stretched out as a starter in his rehab appearances, but this will be a welcome sign for a team being dealt injuries on a daily basis.
Luis Robert (R) (R) (CHW) – Robert has been out since May with a flexor strain, but he’s scheduled to begin his rehab assignment in Wednesday.
John Means (L) (L) (BAL) – Baltimore plans to activate Means to start Tuesday’s game against Tampa. Means has been out for about six weeks with shoulder discomfort so I wouldn’t expect him to pitch too deep into this contest.

Last Update: July 19, 8:00 pm ET

Jacob deGrom (R) (R) (NYM) – More of the same for deGrom at the moment. He feels tightness in his forearm but there is no structural damage. The Mets are shutting him down from throwing until the tightness goes away and they will be placing him on the 10-day IL.

Last Update: July 12, 10:30 pm ET
Yu Darvish (R) (R) (SD) – Darvish has been dealing with some back and hip tightness and the club placed him on the IL retroactive to July 8 so he may only miss one start as long as there are no setbacks.

Ian Anderson (R) (R) (ATL) – Anderson was absolutely rocked in his start on Sunday as he couldn’t make it out of the third inning. There are concerns that it could be a shoulder injury and the prized pitching commodity is set to undergo further testing on Tuesday.
Last Update: July 11, 8:30 am ET
Ronald Acuña Jr. (R) (R) (ATL) – Atlanta’s worst fears have been confirmed. Acuna tore his ACL and will miss the remainder of the 2021 season. His recovery window is about nine months so it’s possible he misses the start of 2022 as well.
Salvador Perez (R) (R) (KC) – Perez is day-to-day and will be re-evaluated on Sunday after experiencing some tightness in his back. With the All-Star Break coming up it would make sense to give him an extra day of rest.
Zack Greinke (R) (R) (HOU) – Greinke left Saturday’s start against the Yankees after four innings with shoulder soreness. He has said he’s been dealing with this injury for a while now so it’s worth keeping an eye on to see how they approach it following the break.

Clayton Kershaw (L) (L) (LAD) – The Dodgers caught a break after Kershaw’s MRI revealed no structural damage in his left forearm. Kershaw’s just battling some inflammation and luckily gets the All-Star break at the right time to rest up.
Last Update: July 10, 6:45 pm ET
Ronald Acuna (ATL) - It was tough to see the young star outfielder go down with an apparent leg injury and have to be carted off the field. Things you hate to see? That. If it’s not serious, we’d be shocked. We should expect to move forward in our fantasy baseball seasons without him.
Yan Gomes (R) (R) (WAS) - After leaving Friday’s game with an oblique injury, Gomes was instantly placed on the 10-day IL. This is a tough loss for Washington as Gomes’ has posted a 102 wRC+ and the average for a catcher is 89. He’s been very good offensively.

Buster Posey (R) (R) (SFG) - Posey has been placed on the 10-day IL, retroactive to July 6th. He was injured due to a foul tip and it was clearly a case of whether or not his thumb would heal fast enough. The answer? No. He shouldn’t be out for too long after the All-Star break.
Asdrúbal Cabrera (B) (B) (ARI) - Cabrera has been placed on the 10-day IL with a strained right hamstring. This could be a slight blow to Arizona’s ability to maximize his trade value as we head towards the deadlin

Sonny Gray (R) (R) (CIN) – The Reds placed Gray on the 10-day IL on Thursday due to a rib cage sprain. It doesn’t sound like he’ll miss his next start after the All-Star break. The timing of his IL stint gives him some extra days of rest so this isn’t too big of a deal right now.

Anthony Rendon (R) (R) (LAA) – Rendon was placed on the 10-day IL on Monday, his third trip of the season. The move is retroactive to Monday and there’s no official word on when he’ll return since he’s dealing with a hamstring issue.

Josh Donaldson (R) (R) (MIN) – Donaldson was still held out of Monday’s lineup with hamstring tightness he experienced in Saturday’s game. There’s no clear timetable for when he could return, but if the team hasn’t put him on the IL they must feel like he doesn’t need an elongated absence.
Zach Plesac (R) (R) (CLE) – Plesac threw a bullpen session on Monday and the general belief is that he’ll be able to start against Kansas City Thursday night, but don’t expect him to pitch too deep into that game.

Last Update: July 2, 5:00 am ET
Ronald Acuña Jr. (R) (R) (ATL) – Acuna missed a couple games last week with back tightness and he was a late scratch for Thursday’s game against the Mets. He did enter later in the game recording a single and a walk.
Yoán Moncada (B) (B) (CHW) – Moncada left Thursday’s with a hand injury. There was reportedly some swelling so don’t be too surprised if he gets the weekend off.
Kolten Wong (L) (L) (MIL) – Wong missed Milwaukee’s previous four games due to a calf injury but he did crack Thursday’s lineup. Sadly the return was short-lived as he left after just two innings.
Bobby Dalbec (R) (R) (BOS) – Dalbec has missed Boston’s last two games with some hamstring tightness, but there’s a possibility he returns for this weekend’s series.
Blake Snell (L) (L) (SD) – Snell was placed on the 10-day IL with what is being described as “stomach stuff.”
José Urquidy (R) (R) (HOU) – Urquidy was placed on the 10-day IL with shoulder discomfort. Neither he nor the organization think it’s a serious issue so he should likely return when eligible to come off the IL next week.
Michael Pineda (R) (R) (MIN) – Pineda has been out since June 13th, but he was recently sent out on a rehab assignment.
Willie Calhoun (L) (L) (TEX) – Calhoun underwent surgery on Wednesday for his fractured forearm. There is no timetable for his return.
Last Update: July 1, 4:50 am ET
Shane Bieber (R) (R) (CLE) – Bieber had an evaluation on his should a couple days ago and it went quite well. He’s been out the past couple weeks but will likely be ready to return in three weeks if all goes well.
José Ramírez (B) (B) (CLE) - Ramirez fouled a ball off his cheek and while he initially kept playing through it, some swelling developed and he was taken to the hospital for further evaluation. Terry Francona acknowledged that everyone thinks he's fine but they didn't want to mess around with this type of freak accident.
Madison Bumgarner (L) (L) (ARI) – Bumgarner has thrown a simulated game and a couple bullpen sessions topping out at right around 30 pitches. He’ll need a rehab assignment but there is a possibility he returns following the All-Star break.
Kris Bryant (R) (R) and Anthony Rizzo (L) (L) (CHC) – Might as well lump these teammates in together as Bryant is dealing with a side issue, and for Rizzo it’s his back. The team is off on Thursday, but both are set to return on Friday after a few days of rest.
Luis Robert (R) (R) (CHW) – It sounds like Robert is about four weeks away from a rehab assignment. He’s still unlikely to return before August and even a mid-August return is a bit optimistic. But he should be back in time for a late playoff push in September.
Trea Turner (R) (R) (WSH) – It was a big birthday for Trea Turner (R) (R) as he hit for the cycle, but he did have to leave the game early with a finger injury. It doesn’t sound like anything too serious as of right now. Hopefully he didn’t make it worse celebrating his birthday.
David Peterson (L) (R) (L) (R) (NYM) – Peterson’s hot streak came to an end on Wednesday as he struggled right out of the gate. He gave up a lot of contact and was pulled after just three innings with a side injury. We’ll know more about the severity on Thursday.
