Last Update: July 24, 4:00 pm ET
Trevor Rogers (MIA) - The Marlins placed Rogers on the 10-day IL with lower back spasms. He'll be eligible to come off the IL late next week, but that's dependent on how his back feels.
Cody Bellinger (LAD) – Bellinger exited Friday night’s game prior to the eighth inning with hamstring tightness after running out a triple. There’s optimism he’ll be able to play in Sunday’s series finale, but the situation is a bit fluid right now.
Mookie Betts (LAD) – Betts missed a sixth straight game Friday night. They’re taking every precaution they can and they’re hopeful he plays on Sunday, but a more realistic expectation would be a return on Tuesday.
Gary Sanchez (NYY) – Sanchez exited Friday’s game against Boston with back spasms. He was not in Saturday’s lineup.
Stephen Strasburg (WSH) – Not the greatest news coming out of Washington. After Wednesday’s bullpen session, Strasburg reported some neck discomfort so they’ll be scaling back his rehab until he’s feeling better.
Eduardo Rodriguez (BOS) – E-Rod exited Friday’s start against the Yankees in the second inning with migraines. Alex Cora is optimistic it’s something they can contain and that it was hopefully just a rare occurrence.
Alex Cobb (LAA) – Cobb left during warmups ahead of the sixth inning Friday night with a blister on his index finger. He previously missed two weeks back in May with a similar injury.
Josh Rojas (ARI) – The Diamondbacks officially placed Rojas on the 10-day IL after dislocating his finger Wednesday night.
Last Update: July 23, 6:00 am ET
Jon Berti (R) (MIA) – Berti was hit in the back of the head by an 85mph off-speed pitch. He walked off the field under his own power and was diagnosed with a concussion.
Jazz Chisholm (MIA) – Chisholm has been getting work in defensively and the team believe he’ll come off the IL when eligible next Friday.
Travis d’Arnaud (ATL) – d’Arnaud has been out of action since the beginning of May with torn ligaments in his thumb but he’s been travelling with the team this week and recently started throwing and catching in the outfield.
Josh Rojas (L) (ARI) – Rojas dislocated his finger while sliding into second base. It’s a little unclear how much time he could miss at the moment, but expect an update on Wednesday.
Nick Castellanos (R) (CIN) – Castellanos has a microfracture in his wrist so he’s unable to swing a bat at the moment. He said he was going to take a couple days to rest it so we’ll see where he’s at following the weekend.
Mookie Betts (R) (LAD) – Betts was once again out of the Dodgers lineup on Wednesday which isn’t much of an update as he’s been dealing with a hip issue. Dave Roberts did acknowledge that he might need a trip to the IL.
Justin Upton (R) (LAA) – Upton made his first rehab start and hit a home run, although he’s also struck out four times. He’s missed a month with lower back tightness but there’s optimism he could be back by the end of the month.
Alex Kirilloff () (L) (MIN) – The Twins announced that their prized rookie would need surgery to repair a torn ligament in his wrist. This move will likely end the rookie’s season.
Zach Eflin (R) (PHI) – Eflin was placed on the 10-day IL on Tuesday with tendinitis in his knee. Eflin’s dealt with similar injuries in his career so hopefully he’ll come off the IL when he’s eligible to return.
Last Update: July 21, 5:00 am ET
Justin Turner (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). 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) (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.
Kris Bryant (R) (CHC) – Bryant left Tuesday’s game in the fifth inning due to hamstring fatigue. It’s not a strain, but it does sound like Bryant could receive an off day on Wednesday to rest up.
Alex Bregman (R) (HOU) – Bregman has been out with a strained hamstring for over a month, but he could head out on a rehab assignment starting this weekend.
Nick Senzel (R) (CIN) – Senzel had surgery on his knee back in May and he is slated to begin a rehab assignment next week at Triple-A, Louisville.
Aaron Civale (R) (CLE) – Civale has been playing catch for the last week and might start throwing off a mound next week as he works his way back from a fractured finger.
Last Update: July 20, 7:20 pm ET
Zach Eflin (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) (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) (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.
Brady Singer (R) (KC) - Singer's injury seems fairly serious considering its shoulder fatigue. The hope is it's nothing more than shoulder fatigue, but we will have to wait and see.
Chris Owings (R) (COL) - Owings has a mallet finger, a deformation of the finger, and has been placed on the 10-day IL.
Mookie Betts (R) (LAD) - Betts was NOT in the Dodgers lineup on Tuesday and this is approaching potential IL stint territory if he doesn't crack the LAD lineup on Wednesday.
Last Update: July 20, 4:30 am ET
Mookie Betts (R) (LAD) – Betts was scratched from Monday’s lineup with right hip inflammation. It’s the same injury that forced him to leave Saturday’s contest and miss Sunday’s game. For now, he’s still considered day-to-day.
Carlos Carrasco (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) (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) (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.
Dinelson Lamet (R) (SD) – Lamet is progressing toward a return from right forearm inflammation. Jayce Tingler indicated that when he does return, they will scale back his workload so they don’t overuse him.
Last Update: July 19, 8:00 pm ET
Gavin Lux (L) (LAD) - This is not good news for Lux. He's been placed on the 10-day IL due to a left hamstring strain. Dodgers manager Dave Roberts told reporters his recovery “could take some time."
Jazz Chisholm Jr. (L) (MIA) - The young infielder has been placed on the 10-day IL with a left shoulder contusion. The good news is that it sounds like it's just a bone bruise.
Garrett Cooper (R) (MIA) - Cooper has a sprained left elbow and has been placed on the 10-day IL. He had been playing extremely well recently, so that's a tough blow.
Brandon Crawford (L) (SF) - An oblique strain has caused the Giants to place Crawford on the 10-day IL. It seems as if it'll be a 10 to 14 day injury, but we'll find out more as the week goes on.
Alek Manoah (R) (TOR) - The talented rookie right-hander has been placed on the 10-day IL with a back contusion retroactive to July 16th. It was caused by a slip and fall down the dugout stairs.
Carlos Martínez (R) (STL) - Martinez, already on the IL, is likely done for the season now that he underwent surgery on his thumb.
Christian Arroyo (R) (BOS) - He hurt his hamstring on Sunday by stretching out for a baseball and will be placed on the 10-day IL because of it.
Ender Inciarte (L) (ATL) - Inciarte has been placed on the COVID-19 list. He tested negative with his first test, but will need to test negative multiple times before being eligible to return to the team.
Last Update: July 18, 11:45 am ET
Mookie Betts (R) (LAD) – Betts left Saturday’s game in the seventh inning with right hip irritation. He began to limp pulling into second base for his third double of the night. He also hit a home run. For now, he’s considered day-to-day.
Jacob deGrom (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.
Francisco Lindor (B) (CLE) – Lindor left Friday’s game after looking a bit uncomfortable swinging the bat in the fifth inning. The Mets are labeling it an oblique strain and he was officially placed on the 10-day IL Saturday afternoon.
Kevin Gausman (R) (SF) – There’s no injury to Gausman but he was placed on the family medical emergency list due to a personal matter.
Clayton Kershaw (L) (LAD) – Kershaw isn’t playing catch as of Saturday and there’s no timetable for his return.
Anthony Rendon (R) (LAA) – Rendon’s hamstring isn’t healing as fast as the organization anticipated and he will be out for another two-to-three weeks at minimum.
Nick Castellanos (R) (CIN) – Castellanos was hit by a pitch on the wrist Friday and left the game. X-rays came back negative and he’s listed as day-to-day.
Luke Voit (R) (NYY) – After being placed on the 10-day IL, the Yankees stated that Voit will undergo a lubricating injection in his knee and there’s no timetable for his return.
Ian Anderson (R) (ATL) – The Braves placed Anderson on the 10-day IL on Friday with shoulder inflammation. He won’t be throwing for the next seven-to-ten days so one can expect that is when he will be re-evaluated.
Jack Flaherty (R) (STL) – Flaherty hasn’t pitched in almost two months as he recovers from an oblique strain. The Cardinals hope he can start a rehab assignment in the next three-to-four weeks.
Brandon Crawford (L) (SF) – Crawford grabbed his leg during an at bat in the eighth inning of Friday night’s game. He was diagnosed with a hamstring cramp so he’s day-to-day for now.
Last Update: July 16, 4:15 pm ET
Luke Voit (R) (NYY) - Voit has been placed on the 10-day IL with a bone bruise in his left knee.
Chris Sale (L) (BOS) – Sale made his long-awaited minor league rehab debut on Thursday and worked three innings while throwing 39 pitches. His fastball topped out at 97mph and the next step in his rehab will be Tuesday night with Double-A Portland.
Tyler Glasnow (R) (TB) – Glasnow has a partially torn UCL and a flexor strain but he is starting to play light catch, which the Rays are deeming as a good sign .There’s still not clear time frame for his return, but he’s probably a couple months away.
Last Update: July 12, 10:30 pm ET
Yu Darvish (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.
Ryan Weathers (L) (SD) – Weathers had to leave Sunday’s game after colliding with Jon Gray (R) on the first base line. He planted his leg awkwardly and left with an Achilles injury. MRI results showed no structural damage in his leg or ankle, but it does sound like he could be out until early August.
Merrill Kelly (R) (ARI) – Kelly left Sunday’s start with some leg cramps. Torey Lovullo did comment that he doesn’t believe Kelly will miss his next start.
Ian Anderson (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) (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) (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) (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.
Carlos Correa (R) (HOU) – Correa was placed on the 10-day IL prior to Friday’s series opener against the Yankees due to health and safety protocols.
Clayton Kershaw (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) (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.
Mitch Garver (R) (MIN) - Garver caught a bullpen session on Friday, signaling he’s close to a return. He’s likely going to start his rehab assignment next week and could potentially be back soon after the All-Star break.
Tommy La Stella (L) (SFG) - The rehab assignment is set to begin as the infielder has had an injury plagued season that has disappointed by many accounts. La Stella is coming back from a hamstring and hand injury.
Buster Posey (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) (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
Last Update: July 9, 6:15 am ET
Sonny Gray (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.
Justus Sheffield (L) (SEA) – Sheffield was placed on the 10-day IL with a forearm strain and the club revealed he’s also battling an oblique strain as well. There’s no timetable for when he could return.
Eloy Jiménez (R) (CHW) – The White Sox announced on Thursday that Jimenez would begin a rehab assignment on Friday. This is great news as he’s ahead of his recovery window. There’s no official word on when he could join the big league club, but it’s welcome news from fantasy owners as long as he doesn’t suffer a setback.
Eddie Rosario (L) (CLE) – Rosario has been placed on the 10-day IL with an oblique strain he suffered on Monday.
John Means (L) (BAL) – Means started his rehab assignment earlier this week. He’ll likely need two more starts in the minors before he’s brought back up to the O’s.
Chris Sale (L) (BOS) – Sale is scheduled to toss a simulated game on Saturday. If everything goes well he’ll be sent out on a rehab assignment that could start as early as next Thursday.
Last Update: July 8, 5:20 am ET
Kris Bryant (R) (CHC) – Bryant left Wednesday’s game early with hamstring tightness. There’s no word yet on if he’ll need a stint on the IL but the Cubs might be cautious and hold him out of the lineup for a few days.
Ozzie Albies (B) (ATL) – Albies was removed from Wednesday’s game in Pittsburgh with a stiff neck. The team doesn’t believe it’s overly serious and they do think he’ll be back in the lineup on Friday.
Matt Chapman (R) (OAK) – Chapman was excluded from Wednesday’s lineup as he’s been experiencing a case of the stomach flu.
Alex Bregman (R) (HOU) – Bregman is nearing a rehab assignment as he’s been taking batting practice and running at about 85-90% full speed.
Carlos Martínez (R) (STL) – Martinez suffered a torn ligament in his thumb while fouling a ball off in the Cardinals’ recent series against the Rockies. Mike Schildt acknowledged that they don’t expect Martinez back anytime soon.
Last Update: July 7, 6:35 pm ET
Clayton Kershaw (L) (LAD) - Kershaw has been placed on 10-day IL with left forearm inflammation. A corresponding move has not yet been announced.
Yasmani Grandal (B) (CHW) – Grandal was placed on the 10-day IL with a torn tendon in his knee. The injury will likely keep him out for four-to-six weeks. The White Sox have had their share of injuries in 2021 but they will get some key pieces back as the summer progresses. For now they recalled Seby Zavala (R) from Triple-A who will get some action behind the dish.
Michael Pineda (R) (MIN) – Pineda will be activated off the IL to make Wednesday’s start against the White Sox.
Anthony Rendon (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.
Mike Trout (R) (LAA) – Trout hit on the field on Monday and it’s likely he’ll be activated after the All-Star break.
John Means (L) (BAL) – Means recently started his rehab stint over the weekend and he’ll likely make two more rehab starts before returning after the All-Star break.
Gregory Polanco (L) (PIT) – Polanco has been out for over a week as he’s dealing with a strained adductor so the Pirates opted to place him on the 10-day IL.
Travis d’Arnaud (ATL) – d’Arnaud is still working out and going through drills, but he doesn’t have a return date after having surgery on his hand.
Last Update: July 5, 11:45 pm ET
Sixto Sánchez (R) (MIA) – Sanchez will undergo season-ending after a MRI revealed a slight tear of his posterior capsule in his shoulder.
Buster Posey (R) (SF) – Posey has been diagnosed with a left thumb contusion and he’s currently day-to-day. He was removed from Sunday’s game after taking a foul tip off his hand and he removed himself shortly thereafter.
Nelson Cruz (R) (MIN) – Cruz has been dealing with a really bad chest cold that led to violent coughing that resulted in a stiff neck. The team sent him to see a doctor and held him out of the lineup on Monday.
Josh Donaldson (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) (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.
Carlos Carrasco (R) (NYM) – Carrasco’s still attempting to rehab back from his torn hamstring. He’s been working in bullpen sessions and more recently started getting involved with defensive drills. If he doesn’t experience any setbacks the current timetable is to have him back with the club by the end of the month.
Lorenzo Cain (R) (MIL) – Cain is currently with the big-league club but is set to go out on an extended rehab stint that’ll last until well after the All-Star break.
Mitch Garver (R) (MIN) – The Twins believe Garver will return sometime after the All-Star Break. He’s recovering from groin surgery but they’ve been increasing his baseball activity over the last couple weeks.
Last Update: July 4, 5:15 am ET
Kyle Schwarber (L) (WSH) – Schwarber had to exit Friday’s game in the second inning. He single to center and came up gingerly as he got to first base and as it turns out he injured his hamstring. He was diagnosed with a significant hamstring strain and he will miss some time.
Josh Donaldson (R) (MIN) – Donaldson was removed from Saturday’s game against the Royals after coming up lame with some hamstring tightness. The move was precautionary and he’s listed as day-to-day.
Zac Gallen (R) (ARI) – Gallen exited his start on Friday with hamstring tightness and was placed back on the 10-day IL.
Trea Turner (R) (WSH) – Turner injured his finger on Wednesday while getting his third career cycle. He jammed it sliding into third base for a triple and he was kept out of Thursday and Friday’s lineups.
Yasmani Grandal (B) (CHW) – Grandal left Friday’s game in the fifth inning with calf tightness. He’ll likely get the weekend off to rest the injury.
José Ramírez (B) (CLE) – Ramirez was scratched from Friday’s lineup as he’s been dealing with elbow soreness. The good news is that Cleveland at least got Franmil Reyes (R) back after he missed a month.
David Peterson (L) (R) (NYM) – Peterson is dealing with an oblique strain that’ll keep him out for over a month. It’s likely he returns mid-to-late August.
Last Update: July 2, 5:00 am ET
Ronald Acuña Jr. (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) (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) (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) (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) (SD) – Snell was placed on the 10-day IL with what is being described as “stomach stuff.”
José Urquidy (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) (MIN) – Pineda has been out since June 13th, but he was recently sent out on a rehab assignment.
Willie Calhoun (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) (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) (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) (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) and Anthony Rizzo (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) (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) (WSH) – It was a big birthday for Trea Turner (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) (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.
Last Update: June 30, 6:00 am ET
No significant injuries of note from Tuesday, but there are a few updates on some players mentioned in the past few days worth touching on.
José Urquidy (R) (HOU) - Urquidy's shoulder flared up in Tuesday's start and he was forced to leave the game. We'll know more about the severity on Wednesday.
Willie Calhoun (L) (TEX) – Calhoun was hit by a pitch in the forearm and was placed on the IL with a fractured ulna. He will require surgery, so a lengthy absence is what we’re looking at.
Ketel Marte (B) (ARI) – Marte has been placed on the 10-day IL with a hamstring strain. These are injuries you try not to mess with or come back too soon from. They’re easy to re-aggravate and everyone recovers from them at a different pace.
Dinelson Lamet (R) (SD) – Lamet was formally placed on the 10-day IL with forearm inflammation but don’t be surprised if he requires a longer stint on the IL. It’s not his first IL stint after all.
Michael Fulmer (R) (DET) – Fulmer was placed on the 10-day IL a few days ago with a strained cervical spine. Right now it does sound like it’s more of a muscular issue at the moment so the Tigers are being cautious and a bit vague with how they’re handling this process.
Last Update: June 29, 5:00 am ET
Mike Trout (R) (LAA) – The Angels transferred Trout from the 10-day IL to the 60-day IL. This isn’t indicative of a setback in his rehab process or anything of that nature. He’s been out since May 17th and signals that he won’t be back until after the All-Star break in a couple weeks. The move was to create room on the 40-man roster.
José Abreu (R) (CHW) – After being hit by a pitch on the knee on Sunday, Abreu has told the team he feels good and ready to play. He’ll be re-evaluated before Tuesday’s game against Minnesota.
Alex Bregman (R) (HOU) – Bregman’s been dealing with a quad strain and hasn’t been able to provide many updates on his injury status, but it doesn’t sound like he’ll be back before the All-Star break.
Brandon Nimmo (L) (NYM) – Nimmo’s return to the team will be delayed just a few days as the team looks to get him some more reps in the minors. He should return in time for this weekend’s series against the Yankees.
J.D. Davis (NYM) – Davis will begin a rehab assignment on Wednesday. He’s been battling some discomfort and inflammation to his hand for the last month.
Kyle Freeland (L) (COL) – Freeland left Monday’s start after five innings after experiencing a hamstring injury. Luckily the injury was just a cramp and not a strain.
Colin Moran (L) (PIT) – Moran is listed as day-to-day after leaving Monday’s game after being hit by a pitch in the wrist. He has some bruising but it looks like he will avoid time on the IL.
Brett Anderson (L) (MIL) – Anderson got a bullpen session in on Monday and shouldn’t miss too much more time after sustaining a right knee injury while running the bases over a week ago.
Brandon Belt (L) (SF) – Belt’s going to seek a third opinion on his knee, but it looks like he doesn’t have much structural damage in his knee and will avoid surgery. No word yet on when he could begin rehabbing.
Tommy La Stella (L) (SF) – La Stella has been rehabbing his hamstring at Triple-A but will be shut down for a couple weeks after fracturing his thumb. Expect his return to be delated about two weeks.
Corey Seager (L) (LAD) – Seager has been experiencing some discomfort in his injured hand while taking batting practice swings. He will likely not be meeting his early July return date.
Anthony Rizzo (L) (CHC) – Rizzo left Sunday night’s game against the Dodgers with lower back tightness. He’s considered day-to-day.
Victor Robles (R) (WSH) – Robles was hit by a pitch in the knee on Sunday and is still dealing with some soreness. He didn’t start on Monday but he was available to pinch hit.
Last Update: June 27, 6:45 pm ET
José Abreu (R) (CHW) – Abreu was hit by a pitch in the knee on Sunday and he departed shortly thereafter. He’s considered day-to-day with a left knee contusion.
Josh Naylor (L) (CLE) – Naylor had to be carted off the field on Sunday after a collision in right field with Ernie Clement (R). No word yet on the severity of the issue, but it’s never a good sign when a player is carted off.
Zach Plesac (R) (CLE) – Plesac will officially begin a rehab assignment on Tuesday at Double-A Akron. He’s scheduled to pitch two innings.
Last Update: June 27, 5:40 am ET
Dinelson Lamet (R) (SD) – Lamet spent the offseason recovering from a UCL strain and unfortunately, he departed his start on Saturday in the third inning after allowing four runs and six hits. It wouldn’t be too surprising if he landed back on the IL.
Jesse Winker (L) (CIN) – Winker exited Saturday’s game with a hip contusion after making a diving defensive play. He doesn’t expect it to be a serious issue that could impact him long-term, but don’t be surprised if he gets Sunday off for some rest.
Tejay Antone (R) (CIN) – After coming off the IL on Tuesday, Antone went back to the IL on Saturday. This isn’t the greatest news for Cincinnati considering Lucas Sims (R) recently went on the IL as well.
Bryce Harper (L) (PHI) – Harper exited Saturday’s game after a pitch from Jacob deGrom (R) bounced off the dirt and hit him in the leg. The Phillies expect to have more information on the injury Sunday morning.
Ketel Marte (B) (ARI) – Marte exited Saturday’s game after drawing a single off Dinelson Lamet (R). As he rounded first base, he motioned to the dugout that he needed to be withdrawn. Marte previously missed over a month of action earlier in the year with a hamstring injury.
Zack Britton (L) (NYY) – After being removed from Friday’s game with a hamstring injury, the Yankees formally placed Britton on the IL.
Carlos Carrasco (R) (NYM) – Carrasco has started throwing from the slope of the mound, but he’s still a long way from returning to action as he needs to go through a full Spring-Training regimen to build up his strength.

Stephen Strasburg (R) (WSH) – Strasburg has started throwing from 150-feet with good intensity, but he still has a long way to go. Strasburg’s been haunted by injuries his entire career so the team doesn’t want to bring him back until he’s 100% ready to go.

Joey Lucchesi (L) (NYM) - To piggyback off a report from earlier today, Lucchesi will infact undergo Tommy John surgery. His 2021 campaign, and likely some or most of '22 as well, is over.

Brett Anderson (L) (MIL) – Anderson exited his start on Monday in the second inning with knee discomfort. He’s likely heading to the 10-day IL.

Last Update: June 20, 9:45 am ET

Carson Kelly (R) (ARI) – Kelly was hit by a pitch and suffered a wrist fracture. He was raking prior to going down with an injury earlier in the season so the wrist fracture certainly won’t help.
Joey Lucchesi (L) (NYM) – Lucchesi was placed on the 10-day IL on Saturday with left elbow inflammation. The team didn’t feel he’d be ready for his next start after he complained of some pain in his arm. It’s still possible he’ll be ready to return when eligible.

Jacob deGrom (R) (NYM) – Sadly it seems like deGrom will be making the Injury Report on a regular basis. He tossed three stellar innings and recorded eight strikeouts before being lifted with shoulder soreness on Wednesday night. Treat him as day-to-day for the time being.
Michael Conforto (L) (NYM) – Conforto started a rehab assignment with Triple-A Syracuse and was slated a couple at-bats and five innings of defensive work. There’s no set timetable yet for his return to the big-league club.

Bryce Harper (L) (PHI) – Always a victim of some form of a nagging injury, Harper left Tuesday’s game with some discomfort in the fourth inning. The team said that he tweaked his back so it wouldn’t be too surprising if they gave him a day or two off.

Tucker Davidson (L) (ATL) – The Braves rotation took another hit on Tuesday after Davidson left early in his start. He surrendered a pair of home runs in the first inning to the Red Sox and he departed in the third inning with forearm tightness.

Eloy Jiménez (R) (CHW) – Jimenez tore a pectoral muscle in Spring Training and he’s been cleared to resume all baseball activities. He’s still over a month away from returning. He needs to basically go through an accelerated Spring Training and then go out on rehab assignment. He likely won’t return until August.

George Springer (R) (TOR) – After missing the first few months of the season, Springer is finally heading out on a rehab assignment. The Blue Jays will be careful given he’s re-aggravated the quad strain previously in his rehabilitation, but this is a massive step in the right direction.

Andrew Benintendi (L) (KC) - A tough blow for the Royals and Benintendi as he hits the IL due to a rib injury. What's significant about this is that a rib injury kept him out of the lineup in 2020 as well, so hopefully there is no correlation here.
Luke Voit (R) (NYY) - Voit is starting a rehab assignment so it shouldn't be long until he's back with the Yankees. It's been an injury riddled season for Voit who's already been on the IL twice.
Mitch Haniger (R) (SEA) - After fouling a ball off his leg over the weekend, the Mariners came out and said that this isn't anything serious and it's nothing more than a deep bone bruise.

Last Update: June 9, 7:50 am ET
