2023 Fantasy Baseball MLB Injury Report Week 14

Updated: July 7

MLB Injury Updates Hitters 

Thairo Estrada 2B San Francisco Giants (Wrist)

Estrada fractured his hand and he'll be out of action for at least the next month to let it heal up. It wouldn't be surprising to see him sidelined for two months with the injury. Casey Schmitt has been starting at second base for the Giants for the last few days.

Jazz Chisholm Jr. Jr. OF Miami Marlins (Oblique)

Chisholm is back on the injured list with a strained oblique and he'll need a few weeks to recover. He shouldn't have to miss the same amount of time he missed previously when he was out in the spring. With Miami dealing with multiple injured outfielders, we saw Jesus Sanchez, Bryan De La Cruz and Dane Myers in their previous game.

Jonathan Davis OF Miami Marlins (Knee)

Davis had knee surgery and he'll be out for a few months possibly ending his season after hurting it a few days ago while in the field. 

Shohei Ohtani Util, SP Los Angeles Angels (Finger)

Ohtani made it through five innings of his previous start and then he was taken out because of a blister, but it didn't keep him out of the lineup the following day. He'll pitch next once play resumes after the all-star break. No injured list stint for him. 

Mike Trout OF Los Angeles Angels (Hand)

Trout had surgery on his hand after he fractured it and he'll be out for at least the next month. The timetable for his recovery is a bit loose and he could very well be sidelined for the next two months depending on how fast he recovers. 

Anthony Rendon 3B Los Angeles Angels (Shin)

Rendon hurt his shin earlier in the week and he sat out a game to let the pain go away and he's considered day-to-day and should be back in the mix this weekend. 

Brandon Drury 2B Los Angeles Angels (Shoulder)

Drury hurt his shoulder and the Angels placed him on the injured list and he won’t be back until after the all-star break. Eduardo Escobar and Luis Rengifo have been filling in at second base while Drury has been sidelined.

Austin Hays OF Baltimore Orioles (Hip)

Hays hasn't played since last weekend due to hip pain, but the pain isn't severe enough at this point to require an injured list stint and hopefully, he can play over the next few days prior to the all-star break in the Orioles series against the Twins. 

Aaron Hicks OF Baltimore Orioles (Achilles)

Hicks has a sore achilles and he sat out for the Orioles last game. Colton Cowser was called up to play the outfield. Hicks is currently day-to-day.

Ji Hwan Bae 2B Pittsburgh Pirates (Ankle)

Bae was put on the injured list Sunday with an ankle injury and he’ll miss at least the next 10 days of action. It’s been a poor June from a production standpoint for Bae.

Royce Lewis 3B Minnesota Twins (Oblique)

Lewis has a pretty badly strained oblique and it isn't looking like we'll see him back on the field until August. Jose Miranda has been the primary fill-in option at third base since Lewis got hurt. 

Corbin Carroll OF Arizona Diamondbacks (Shoulder)

Carroll experienced pain in his shoulder while at the plate in Arizona's previous game and he's now day-to-day and will undergo testing on it to make sure there's no severe damage. It wouldn't be surprising to see him out for the next game or two and hopefully, the tests reveal that he's just experiencing soreness. 

Jose Altuve 2B Houston Astros (Oblique)

After missing over a month to start the season, Altuve is back on the injured list with a strained oblique and we won't see him on the field for the next couple of weeks. Mauricio Dubon has filled in at second base over the last few days.

Tommy Edman OF St. Louis Cardinals (Wrist)

Edman has missed the last couple of games because his wrist is sore. Nothing is broken or fractured, but he may need another game or two to rest and recover. He's day-to-day.

Andrew Knizner C St. Louis Cardinals (Groin)

Knizner hurt his groin and he's now on the injured list and the Cardinals called up Ivan Herrera to back up Willson Contreras behind the plate. 

Esteury Ruiz OF Oakland Athletics (Shoulder)

Ruiz hurt his shoulder a couple of games ago while on base and he sat out for the Athletics previous game. The major league baseball steals leader may need another game or two to let the pain subside, but he hasn't been placed on the injured list yet.

Ryan Noda 1B Oakland Athletics (Illness)

Noda is sick and he missed his last game and we'll have to see if he's feeling well enough to be on the field with his teammates for the start of the Athletics weekend series versus the Red Sox.

Carlos Perez C Oakland Athletics (Thumb)

Perez is on the injured list with a fractured thumb and while he's out Manny Pina will be the second option at catcher behind Shea Langeliers

Riley Greene OF Detroit Tigers (Fibula)

Greene fractured his fibula at the end of May and we haven't seen him on the field in over a month but he's getting close to returning and we could possibly see him back in the Tigers lineup this weekend. They might as well give him a few additional days to recover with the all-star break coming up. 

Akil Baddoo OF Detroit Tigers (Quad)

Reports are out that Baddoo's quad has healed up and he's ready to return to the lineup and should be on the field with his teammates this weekend. 

Rowdy Tellez 1B Milwaukee Brewers (Forearm)

The Brewers put Tellez on the injured list a couple of days ago due to swelling in his forearm. Owen Miller has filled in for him at first base for the last few days.

Dansby Swanson SS Chicago Cubs (Heel)

Swanson hurt his heel a couple of games ago and missed the Cubs last game and he's currently day-to-day with heel soreness. Nico Hoerner played shortstop for the Cubs in their last game and could continue filling in if Swanson can't make it back for their weekend series versus the Yankees.

Nick Madrigal 3B Chicago Cubs (Hamstring)

Madrigal strained his hamstring and he's on the injured list and we don't know when we'll see him back on the field. He will very likely be out until at least the end of the month. 

Brett Baty 3B New York Mets (Hamstring)

Baty has a sore hamstring and he sat out the Mets last game against Arizona. It's undetermined whether he'll be available for the start of the Mets series against the Padres this weekend. 

Jake Bauers OF New York Yankees (Shoulder)

Bauers hurt his shoulder and he'll likely be out through the all-star break to heal up. The Yankees have a few injuries in the outfield.


MLB Injury Updates Pitchers 

Shane McClanahan SP Tampa Bay Rays (Back)

After dealing with an ongoing back issue, McClanahan was put on the injured list over the weekend and he won’t return to the mound until the second half of July. McClanahan tried to play through the pain, but it was too severe, and the Rays will let him rest and recover. 

Clayton Kershaw SP Los Angeles Dodgers (Shoulder)

Kershaw ended up getting placed on the injured list earlier in the week due to swelling in his shoulder and he made comments that the pain isn't bad, but who knows how truthful he's being. He could be downplaying the injury. 

Dustin May SP Los Angeles Dodgers (Elbow)

May's season is over after making nine starts in 2023. He will have surgery on his elbow and we won't see him back until 2024.

Daniel Hudson RP Los Angeles Dodgers (Knee)

A few days ago, Hudson sprained his knee and he's on the injured list. He was just activated off the injured list and has made three appearances this season before hurting himself. 

Framber Valdez SP Houston Astros (Ankle)

Valdez had been experiencing ankle pain throughout the week, but the pain is gone and he's slated to start this weekend against Seattle.

Michael Kopech SP Chicago White Sox (Shoulder)

The White Sox put Kopech on the injured list as he continues to experience swelling in his shoulder. We won’t see him pitch again until later in July. 

Bryce Miller SP Seattle Mariners (Finger)

The Mariners put Miller on the injured list with a deep blister on his finger a couple of days ago. 

Garrett Whitlock P Boston Red Sox (Elbow)

Whitlock has a bruised elbow and the Red Sox put him on the injured list and we won't see him back on the hill for a bit. 

Triston McKenzie SP Cleveland Guardians (Elbow)

McKenzie was transferred to the 60-day injured list and the Guardians won't have him available to pitch for another month. McKenzie has made just two starts this season. 

Michael Wacha SP San Diego Padres (Shoulder)

Wacha has been experiencing swelling in his shoulder and the Padres put him on the injured list. He sits with a 2.84 ERA. He has 73 strikeouts for the season.

Anthony DeSclafani SP San Francisco Giants (Shoulder)

DeSclafani has been suffering from shoulder pain and the Giants put him on the injured list and he'll be out through the all-star break. 

Ben Lively P Cincinnati Reds (Chest)

We're hearing reports that Lively should make a start prior to the all-star break as his injured chest has healed up. The Reds face the Brewers this weekend. 

Alex Faedo SP Detroit Tigers (Finger)

Faedo is ready to return to action after missing over a month. He'll be on the mound facing the Blue Jays Friday evening. 

Joe Kelly RP Chicago White Sox (Elbow)
