MLB Injuries

Updated Pos Name Rating Team Status Body Part Injury Details
8:08 pm UTC, 2/20 SP J.C. Ramírez N/A LAA 60 Day Disabled List Los Angeles Angels starter JC Ramirez faced hitters for the first time this spring on Tuesday. He said he felt normal, and that he is scheduled to pitch in his first game on March 1. Ramirez is returning from stem cell therapy used to treat his damaged UCL. The right-hander had a 4.15 ERA and 105 strikeouts last season, his first in the Angels rotation. He will be competing for a spot in LA's six-man rotation this season, and is worth a look in deep mixed and AL-only formats.
8:08 pm UTC, 2/20 SP J.C. Ramírez N/A LAA 60 Day Disabled List Los Angeles Angels starting pitcher J.C. Ramirez (elbow) faced hitters Tuesday for the first time this spring. Ramirez was shut down last August with a partial tear of the ulnar collateral ligament in his elbow, but he opted for stem cell treatment over surgery (similar to teammate Garrett Richards) and said he felt normal Tuesday. He is lined up to make his Cactus League debut on March 1 as he attempts to win a rotation spot.
6:55 pm UTC, 2/20 LF Daniel Nava N/A PIT 60 Day Disabled List Pittsburgh Pirates outfielder Daniel Nava (back) was held out of Tuesday's workouts due to lower back discomfort. Nava also dealt with back problems last year, so the team will play it cautious early in camp. The veteran outfielder hit well with the Phillies last year (.301/.393/.421), but he was fortunate with a .357 BABIP. He has value to the Pirates as a fourth or fifth outfielder and could see starts in left field against right-handed pitchers. Nava's fantasy value is minimal without guaranteed at-bats.
2:44 pm UTC, 2/20 SS Troy Tulowitzki N/A TOR 60 Day Disabled List This is a little too early for injury worries, even for the frequently-hampered Toronto Blue Jays shortstop Troy Tulowitzki. Tulo is dealing with a chronic bone spur in his right heel, and told the media he's unsure if he'll be ready for Opening Day. Of course, Tulo also missed the last two months of the 2017 season due to ligament damage in his right ankle, so it sounds as if he has quite a lot going on there. For fantasy purposes, Tulowitzki is all name value at this point. He hasn't been an overly productive player in years, and the continuous mounting of injuries certainly hurts whatever inkling there was to draft him. In the event Tulo does miss time, new Blue Jays' Yangervis Solarte and Aledmys Diaz should fill the spot, and just might perform even better than him.
12:43 pm UTC, 2/20 DH Victor Martinez N/A DET 60 Day Disabled List Veteran slugger Victor Martinez of the Detroit Tigers battled heart-related health issues throughout the season last year, but is reported to be healthy for the start of the new year. Martinez told reporters he was able to complete his usual off season training program without issues. The switch-hitting DH amassed just 392 AB during the 2017 campaign, and is a bounce-back candidate this year if he can stay off the disabled list. His bat will be desperately needed in a young and rebuilding Tigers offense.
9:51 pm UTC, 2/19 SP Steven Wright N/A BOS 60 Day Disabled List Boston Red Sox starting pitcher Steven Wright (knee) threw on flat ground Monday, according to Jen McCaffrey of MassLive. Throwing with starters Drew Pomeranz and David Price, Wright continued to work his way back from a knee injury. Wright had cartilage-restoration surgery on his left knee in May and missed most of the 2017 season. He was an All-Star in 2016 but only threw 24 innings for the Red Sox in 2017 due to injury, posting an 8.25 ERA. Wright could also be suspended for an offseason domestic-abuse charge.
9:13 pm UTC, 2/19 RF N/A OAK 60 Day Disabled List Oakland Athletics outfielder Dustin Fowler got through Day 1 without any issues, according to Jane Lee of MLB.com. According to Fowler, "Running in the outfield, hitting, everything, it feels just like when I left." He is preparing for some soreness in knee tomorrow, but that is to be expected. Fowler suffered a gruesome right patella tendon rupture in his major league debut last June when he was with the Yankees, but he is right on schedule with his recovery. The A's plan to ease him into things at the beginning of spring training, but all signs point to him being ready to roll come Opening Day. The situation is worth watching closely in spring training, as Fowler is an interesting power/speed guy who hit .293/.329/.542 with 13 homers and 13 steals in 70 Triple-A games before being called up last season.
6:47 pm UTC, 2/19 SS Troy Tulowitzki N/A TOR 60 Day Disabled List Toronto Blue Jays shortstop Troy Tulowitzki (heel) took groundballs and hit without any setbacks Monday in camp, but the team wants to be cautious with him. Manager John Gibbons said he doesn't expect Tulowitzki to play in the first couple of spring games. The injuries just keep coming for Tulo, who was limited to just 66 games in 2017. This injury doesn't appear to be too serious, but it's just a reminder that while Tulo's skills appear to be eroding, he's also an extreme injury risk. Let someone else take on this headache.
5:46 pm UTC, 2/19 DH Victor Martinez N/A DET 60 Day Disabled List Detroit Tigers designated hitter Victor Martinez (heart) said he had a normal offseason training program and wasn't limited in any way. V-Mart missed the final month of last year with an irregular heartbeat and needed surgery to fix it. Unfortunately for fantasy owners, the 39-year-old doesn't have much left to offer with his bat. He doesn't strike out much and walks a fair amount due to his excellent hitting eye, but his power is extremely lacking at his advanced at, and injuries will probably remain an issue. The fact that he's only available in a utility spot for fantasy owners further decreases his value.
11:16 pm UTC, 2/18 SP Aaron Sanchez N/A TOR 60 Day Disabled List Toronto Blue Jays starting pitcher Aaron Sanchez (finger) has been "very sharp" so far this spring, Blue Jays pitching coach Pete Walker said on Sunday. Walker noted that they were treating it like it was a normal spring for Sanchez and that there are currently no limitations regarding his recurring blister issues or the ligament damage to his right middle finger that bothered him throughout 2017. The 25-year-old right-hander makes for an intriguing bounce-back candidate this season.
11:06 pm UTC, 2/18 RP Koda Glover N/A WSH 60 Day Disabled List Washington Nationals relief pitcher Koda Glover (shoulder) has yet to do anything throwing in Nationals camp. Glover dealt with shoulder (and back) issues last season and had a recent MRI that showed he still has some inflammation. "We're going to give him some time," manager Dave Martinez said. Glover has the potential to be a shutdown reliever, but the injury issues are worrisome.
6:53 pm UTC, 2/18 SS Chris Owings N/A ARI 60 Day Disabled List Arizona Diamondbacks infielder Chris Owings (finger) and outfielder Socrates Brito (pinkie) are slightly behind their teammates in camp, according to manager Torey Lovullo. Owings needed a second surgery on his fractured right middle finger in November, but he's on track for Opening Day. Brito injured his finger in winter ball in the Dominican and is "a little behind everybody else." Owings profiles as a super-utility player for the Snakes this year, but he doesn't walk enough to provide a strong average for owners. Owings has decent power and speed, though, so if he manages to win the starting second base job, he could be worth targeting in deeper leagues. Brito has never really been healthy in the major leagues, but he could win the fourth outfield job this spring. Brito doesn't bring much to the table for fantasy owners at the plate.
6:46 pm UTC, 2/18 LF Yasmany Tomás N/A ARI 60 Day Disabled List Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder Yasmany Tomas (hernia) has been cleared for workouts in camp by the team's medical staff after a pair of core muscle/sports hernia surgeries last year, according to manager Torey Lovullo. Tomas likely was never fully healthy in 2017, and his season officially ended in July, as he finished with a .241 average, eight home runs and 32 RBI in just 47 games. Tomas is still just one year removed from a 31-homer campaign and he should be the team's starting left fielder if healthy, meaning there is plenty of value potential for the slugging outfielder in drafts. He'll likely need to improve on his defense, though, in order to be a mainstay in the 2018 lineup.
6:11 pm UTC, 2/18 SP Robbie Erlin N/A SD 60 Day Disabled List San Diego Padres starting pitchers Robbie Erlin (elbow) and Colin Rea (elbow) are taking things cautiously in camp this year as they come back from Tommy John surgery, but they are both among the 10 candidates vying for the team's five starting rotation spots. "Both of those guys, we like where they are right now," said manager Andy Green. "And we like that they're heading back to pitching for us on, hopefully, a consistent basis. They're in the hunt for rotation spots right now." Erlin, a 27-year-old lefty, doesn't blow hitters away with velocity, so it could take him some time to settle back in as an effective starter in 2018 if he's given an opportunity. Rea also has average fastball velocity and is a ground-ball pitcher, which plays well at pitcher-friendly Petco Park. However, both pitchers will be brought along slowly, and while they have potential, fantasy owners should take a wait-and-see approach.
1:02 am UTC, 2/15 SP Brandon Finnegan N/A CIN 60 Day Disabled List Cincinnati Reds starting pitcher Brandon Finnegan (shoulders) had surgery on his left shoulder and also had surgery on his right shoulder to repair a torn labrum last July, but he's reporting to spring camp this year completely healthy. The left-hander tossed seven shutout innings against the Phillies in his first start last year, but it was all downhill from there, and he made just four starts on the season because of his shoulder ailments. Finnegan has a nasty sinker when healthy, though, and he could be a late-round sleeper after going 10-11 with a 3.97 ERA and 1.36 WHIP in 2016. He should have a spot locked up in Cincy's rotation.
6:50 pm UTC, 2/14 SP Phil Hughes N/A MIN 60 Day Disabled List Minnesota Twins starting pitcher Phil Hughes (shoulder) is throwing a bullpen session Wednesday and said he will have no restrictions in camp. Hughes continues to struggle with injuries and made only nine starts in 2017 due to a biceps injury and recurring problems related to thoracic outlet syndrome. His fastball velocity continues to plummet, and he finished with an ugly 5.87 ERA and 1.58 WHIP in 14 appearances. It's a good sign that he's healthy and throwing again, but Hughes is just way too much of an injury risk to roster in most fantasy leagues. Even if he's healthy, he's no guarantee to post good results, either.
6:32 pm UTC, 2/14 RP Cody Anderson N/A CLE 60 Day Disabled List Cleveland Indians pitcher Cody Anderson will throw his first bullpen session since undergoing Tommy John Surgery. He is scheduled to throw on Saturday. Anderson hopes to be ready for the beginning of the 2018 season, but Cleveland has the depth to allow him to come along slowly and will likely keep him out of games until later in April. He's looking at a role in long or middle relief, but there's a chance he's sent to Triple-A to work as a starter and provide some depth there. Either way, he won't have much fantasy value in 2018.
6:02 pm UTC, 2/14 SS Troy Tulowitzki N/A TOR 60 Day Disabled List Toronto Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said shortstop Troy Tulowitzki (heel) is dealing with a bone spur in his heal, but Gibbons doesn't think it'll be an issue in spring training. However, Tulo may have a delayed start in camp. This is the last thing Toronto wants to see after Tulowitzki played in just 66 games in 2017 due to a right shoulder injury. Even when he was on the field, the former slugging shortstop hit just .249 with a weak seven home runs and 26 RBI. He's seen a drastic decline in recent years, and playing on the artificial turf in Toronto won't help his cause moving forward. Tulo is much more of a risk than a reward these days.
2:56 pm UTC, 2/14 2B Marco Hernández N/A BOS 60 Day Disabled List Boston Red Sox infielder Marco Hernandez (shoulder) will be eased into baseball activities at Red Sox camp. Hernandez needed season-ending surgery last May on his left shoulder. His rehab has come along smoothly, but the Red Sox plan to play it safe with his workload early on this spring. The 25-year-old could see significant playing time at second base in April and part of May while Dustin Pedroia recovers from an October cartilage restoration procedure on his left knee.
8:45 pm UTC, 2/13 SP J.C. Ramírez N/A LAA 60 Day Disabled List Los Angeles Angels starter JC Ramirez (elbow) has thrown 10 bullpens and feels normal. His last bullpen was 50 pitches, simulating two innings. He is recovering from stem-cell therapy on his UCL, which he opted for as opposed to Tommy John surgery. Ramirez tossed a career-high 147 1/3 innings with a 4.15 ERA last season with 105 strikeouts. He will compete for a spot in LA's potential six-man rotation next season. He is not an option outside of deeper fantasy leagues.
7:42 pm UTC, 2/13 RP Will Smith N/A SF 60 Day Disabled List Updating an earlier story, San Francisco Giants relief pitcher Will Smith (elbow) will likely return on May 1, according to manager Bruce Bochy. Earlier, Smith said he has npt had any setbacks in his recovery from Tommy John surgery and recently threw his seventh bullpen session. It is hard to say how Smith will fare in 2018 after missing all of last season, but the early returns are positive. The left-hander had an impressive 11.9 K/9 from 2013 to 2016 and should be a high-leverage arm at the back of the bullpen if healthy. However, he won't have much fantasy value unless you are in a league that counts holds.
7:00 pm UTC, 2/13 RP Will Smith N/A SF 60 Day Disabled List San Francisco Giants relief pitcher Will Smith (elbow) said he hasn't had any setbacks in his recovery from Tommy John surgery and recently threw his seventh bullpen session. However, he's unsure if he'll be ready for opening day, and the training staff is being cautious with him. It's hard to say how Smith will fare in 2018 after missing all of last season, but the early returns are positive. The left-hander had an impressive 11.9 K/9 from 2013 to 2016 and should be a high-leverage arm at the back of the bullpen if healthy. However, he won't have much fantasy value unless you're in a league that counts holds.
5:27 pm UTC, 2/13 LF Andrew Toles N/A LAD 60 Day Disabled List Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Andrew Toles is still working his way back from injury, according to Andy McCullough of the Los Angeles Times. Toles had ACL surgery in May after running into a wall and will get plenty of at-bats this Spring, even with the minor-league squad. Before going down with an injury, Toles hit .271 with five home runs and 15 RBI in 31 games. Joc Pederson would be his main competition for the starting spot for the National League champions.
3:06 pm UTC, 2/13 3B David Wright N/A NYM 60 Day Disabled List While it probably doesn't matter, New York Mets third basemen David Wright has reported to spring training. The difference in his latest comeback attempt, though, is that the Mets recently brought third basemen Todd Frazier on-board since Wright can clearly no longer be relied upon. Wright has played in only 75 games over the last three seasons, including missing 2017 completely, suffering from spinal stenosis and undergoing three serious surgeries for other ailments. There's a solid chance this is Wright's final attempt at a comeback, and while he should be admired for it, it simply doesn't seem like his health will ever cooperate again.
3:44 pm UTC, 2/12 3B Matt Duffy N/A TB 60 Day Disabled List Tampa Bay Rays infielder Matt Duffy did not play in 2017, but according to Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times, Duffy is good to go. Topkin tweeted a picture of Duffy taking swings Monday, and it looks like Duffy is fully healthy leading into 2018. He only managed 91 games between two teams in 2016, but , in his only full season of 2015, he showed offensive potential. In that season, he hit .295 with 12 home runs and 12 stolen bases. He will be 27 years old when the 2018 season starts, where he hopes the multiple surgeries and season off will have him healthy enough to see if he can build upon the promise of his lone full season.
3:23 pm UTC, 2/12 RP Álex Reyes N/A STL 60 Day Disabled List St. Louis Cardinals starting pitcher Alex Reyes (elbow) will throw off of a mound Monday, according to Joe Trezza of MLB.com. Trezza says that Reyes will throw 40 fastballs, building up his velocity after missing the entire 2017 season after Tommy John surgery. The team wants to be cautious with Reyes, and while they fully expect him to anchor their starting rotation for years to come, he may work out of the bullpen to get his 2018 started. He would likely work in middle relief at first, but there is always the chance that he could work his way into significant innings, perhaps even a ninth-inning role. The Cardinals know they have a great pitcher in Reyes, so it will be interesting to see how they use him and how they soften his landing. He is a risky fantasy pick for now in redraft leagues, but he has the upside to be worth drafting in most formats.
3:08 pm UTC, 2/12 CF Adam Eaton N/A WSH 60 Day Disabled List Washington Nationals outfielder Adam Eaton (knee) is looking to bounce back after tearing his ACL in April, and Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports says that he is ready to assume his role at the top of the lineup. Eaton said of last season, "Oh, it was brutal," he said. "The worst year of my life, I think it's safe to say. The longest summer of my life." Eaton was injured on April 28 when he landed awkwardly on first base trying to beat out a grounder to short. He has a career .358 on-base percentage and had a career-best .393 mark before suffering his injury last season, so he will be in a good spot to produce if healthy. Look for Eaton to bounce back and approach 100 runs scored with 20 or so stolen bases and a batting average near .300.
1:42 pm UTC, 2/10 SP Aaron Sanchez N/A TOR 60 Day Disabled List Toronto Blue Jays starting pitcher Aaron Sanchez (finger) has been throwing pain-free since January, according to Gregor Chisholm of MLB.com. The right-hander battled recurring blister issues and ligament damage to his right middle finger throughout the 2017 season. He is completely recovered now and will not have any limitations to begin spring training. If he can avoid the blister troubles in 2018, he makes for a nice bounce back candidate.
6:49 pm UTC, 10/19 RP Shawn Kelley N/A WSH 60 Day Disabled List Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post reports that Shawn Kelley, who was at one point the Nationals closer, received stem-cell injections in his elbow and expects to be healthy in time for the 2018 season. Kelley had bone chips that finally sidelined him in September. Surgery was an option but Kelley avoided it, using the increasingly common injection route instead. In 26 innings in 2017, Kelley did manage to strike out 25 batters. But he also gave up 29 hits, and 12 of them were homers. With both Sean Doolittle and Ryan Madson locked up for next year, the best Kelley can hope for a middle-relief role going forward.
6:45 pm UTC, 10/19 CF Jake Marisnick N/A HOU Out Thumb Houston Astros outfielder Jake Marisnick (thumb) played catch Thursday. Marisnick is hoping to be ready to join the roster if the team advances to the World Series, but he'd only be a pinch runner or defensive replacement for Houston in that scenario.
6:41 pm UTC, 10/19 SP Brandon Finnegan N/A CIN 60 Day Disabled List Cincinnati Reds left-hander Brandon Finnegan is finally healthy after struggling through an injury-plagued 2017 season which saw him make just four starts. Finnegan suffered injuries to both of his shoulders in 2017 but told the media that he is completely healed and able to have a "normal offseason" in his words. He strained a muscle in his left shoulder during a game in April and, while rehabbing, slipped and fell in July, tearing the labrum in his right, non-throwing shoulder. Finnegan plans to start working out in November and will begin throwing in December. Finnegan wound up pitching just 13 innings in 2017, posting a 4.15 ERA. He will be a fixture in the Reds' starting rotation in 2018, provided he can remain healthy.
10:38 pm UTC, 10/16 1B Adrián González N/A LAD Out Back Manager Dave Roberts confirmed that injured first baseman Adrian Gonzalez is recuperating his back at home and preparing himself for spring training in 2018. The veteran lost out on his job this season to rookie sensation Cody Bellinger and went on the DL for the first time in his career. His numbers have been trending downward for two seasons as both his trademark power and average were among his career worst. He's in the last year of his contract and could possibly be let go, if the organization doesn't find a front-office position for him first.
6:15 pm UTC, 10/16 CF Jake Marisnick N/A HOU Out Thumb Houston Astros outfielder Jake Marisnick (thumb) played catch for the first time Sunday since he had surgery Sept. 15 to fix his fractured right thumb. Marisnick said he's day-to-day right now, and he could return to help the Astros if they advance to the World Series. However, even if the Astros advance and Marisnick is added to the World Series roster, he's unlikely to do much besides pinch run or serve as a late-inning defensive replacement.
5:37 pm UTC, 10/10 CF Charlie Tilson N/A CHW 60 Day Disabled List Chicago White Sox outfielder Charlie Tilson (ankle) will play his second straight game in the instructional league Tuesday. Tilson missed the entire season with a navicular stress fracture in his right foot. If healthy the young outfielder will have as good of a chance as anyone to make the teams opening day roster.
2:21 am UTC, 10/6 3B David Wright N/A NYM 60 Day Disabled List New York Mets third baseman David Wright (shoulder, back) underwent a laminotomy procedure on his lower back Thursday, and the team isn't giving a timetable for his return to baseball activities. The surgery is usually done to alleviate pressure in the back and it comes roughly a month after Wright had surgery on the rotator cuff in his right shoulder. At this point, it seems like Wright has had more surgeries than games played in the last few years. He last played in a major league game in May of 2016. In the last three years combined, Wright has played in just 75 games for the Mets. He's just not a fantasy option anymore until he proves his health over a long period of time.
4:53 pm UTC, 10/4 SS Chris Owings N/A ARI 60 Day Disabled List Arizona Diamondbacks infielder Chris Owings (finger) will not be a part of the wild-card roster for Wednesday's game against the Rockies. Owings hasn't played in a big league game since July 30, but he has been participating in games in the Instructional League. He could have a chance to be on the roster for the National League Division Series if Arizona advances, but it's no sure thing.
8:07 pm UTC, 10/3 1B Brandon Belt N/A SF 60 Day Disabled List San Francisco Giants first baseman/outfielder Brandon Belt (concussion) has been cleared by Major League Baseball to resume baseball activities. Belt missed much of the second half dealing with the issue. It's good news for Belt who has suffered multiple concussions throughout his career. He will open up next season as the Giants everyday first baseman and isn't a bad pick in the middlento late rounds.
10:20 pm UTC, 10/2 RF N/A OAK 60 Day Disabled List Oakland A's outfielder Dustin Fowler is expected to be at 100 percent at the start of spring training and be ready to compete for the starting center field job. Fowler ruptured his patella in his first game with the New York Yankees, requiring season ending surgery. Fowler was then traded to the A's in the Sonny Gray deal, where he will compete with Boog Powell, Jake Smolinski and possibly Franklin Barreto to be the A's starting center fielder in 2018. Should Fowler win the job, he would be worth a speculative add in deeper mixed leagues and AL-only formats.
4:45 am UTC, 9/29 RP Álex Reyes N/A STL 60 Day Disabled List St. Louis Cardinals starting pitcher Alex Reyes (Tommy John Surgery) will throw a bullpen session on Friday. It will be the first time he's thrown since undergoing Tommy John Surgery in February. He missed the entire season but is expected to be ready near the beginning of the 2018 season. If healthy, he should be a strong fantasy option that may be had for a discount due to his injury.
9:36 pm UTC, 9/28 CF Charlie Tilson N/A CHW 60 Day Disabled List Chicago White Sox outfielder Charlie Tilson has been cleared by doctors for baseball activities and will participate in the team's instructional league. Tilson was originally pegged to be the opening day centerfielder for the club before going down with a foot injury that cost him the season. He will compete for a job on the opening day roster for next year.
8:29 pm UTC, 9/28 CF Jake Marisnick N/A HOU Out Thumb Houston Astros outfielder Josh Reddick (back) remains out of the lineup Thursday. Reddick has missed the last four games due to back soreness, but he's a good bet to be back in the lineup this weekend. Jake Marisnick draws a start in center field and is hitting eighth against Red Sox starter Eduardo Rodriguez. Marisnick is playing in his first game since Sept. 13 due to injury and is a poor choice for DFS players.
7:08 am UTC, 9/28 1B Adrián González N/A LAD Out Back Prior to Wednesday's game it was announced that Adrian Gonzalez will miss the rest of the season, including the playoffs, due to recurring back problems. Ironically, Gonzalez had the best night of his season on Tuesday, going 2-for-4 with a home run. This is likely the end of Gonzalez with the Dodgers, a team that he has carried at times over the last six years. Not including his rookie cup of coffee year, this injury-shortened season (his first ever) produced career lows in HR, R and slugging percentage. While "A-Gon" may have helped owners win in years past, he spent much of 2018 on the waiver wire. Should he find a new home in 2018, he is undraftable in all but the deepest leagues.
6:54 pm UTC, 9/20 1B Brandon Belt N/A SF 60 Day Disabled List San Francisco Giants first baseman/outfielder Brandon Belt (concussion) was moved to the 60-day disabled list on Wednesday. The good news for Belt is that he was doing on the field agility drills. This is a big step for Belt who has been sidelined for much of the second half with a concussion. Belt has suffered from concussions in the past and likely won't play until next year but it's good to see he is improving.
1:51 am UTC, 9/20 SP Hisashi Iwakuma N/A SEA 60 Day Disabled List Updating a previous report, Seattle Mariners starting pitcher Hisashi Iwakuma said he has something structurally wrong with his right should and is seeking other opinions. The 36-year-old veteran has made just six starts this year, good enough for a weak 4.35 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 4.6 K/9. He won't be back to close out this season, and depending on what doctors find, he could struggle to be ready for the 2018 season as well. Iwakuma just isn't a fantasy option anymore.
11:24 pm UTC, 9/19 RP David Phelps N/A SEA 60 Day Disabled List Seattle Mariners pitcher David Phelps underwent surgery Monday to remove a bone spur from his right elbow. Phelps logged just 8 2/3 innings this season for the Mariners, who acquired the 30-year-old right-hander from the Marlins on July 20. The team is hopeful that he will be 100 percent healthy for the beginning of spring training next February. Phelps is arbitration-eligible this winter for the final time and had a 3.40 ERA this season in his time with Miami and Seattle.
11:21 pm UTC, 9/19 SP Hisashi Iwakuma N/A SEA 60 Day Disabled List Seattle Mariners manager Scott Servais acknowledged Tuesday that Hisashi Iwakuma (shoulder) is likely done for the year. Iwakuma landed on the disabled list at the beginning of May with right shoulder inflammation and he has not been able to get over the hump in his rehab. The 36-year-old is scheduled to become a free agent in November, having made just six total starts in 2017 and has a 4.35 ERA this season.
5:50 pm UTC, 9/16 RP Koda Glover N/A WSH 60 Day Disabled List Koda Glover, who's been out since June with various injuries, is done for the season and won't resume baseball activities until November. The good news is that he won't need surgery on his throwing shoulder and he's hopeful the injections he's been getting will be enough. Glover was, at one point, the Nationals closer. But his injury, just as he was starting to cruise, necessitated the acquisitions of Sean Doolittle and Ryan Madson. He's still only 24 and could have some value next season. He could prove valuable in late-rounds depending on how he looks in spring training.
8:01 pm UTC, 9/15 CF Jake Marisnick N/A HOU Out Thumb Outfielder Jake Marisnick's season may be over after breaking his thumb sliding headfirst, per mlb.com.. Marisnick is by far the best outfielder on the team and has hit 16 home runs with 35 runs batted in playing part-time this season. The loss affects the depth of the Astros but not their starting lineup. Expect the Astros to lean heavily on George Springer and Josh Reddick down the stretch.
6:34 pm UTC, 9/15 SP Nick Tropeano N/A LAA 60 Day Disabled List Angels starter Nick Tropeano (elbow) is making progress toward throwing in the instructional league, which is as far as his rehab from Tommy John surgery will take him this season. The Angels are expecting him to be fully healthy heading into 2018. Considering Tropeano's 3.56 ERA across 13 starts in 2016, he could be worth a late round flyer in deep leagues next season.
6:28 pm UTC, 9/15 RP Huston Street N/A LAA 60 Day Disabled List Angels reliever Huston Street (shoulder) threw a simulated game in Arizona last week. He is still hoping to return to the Angels this season. You never know with Mike Scioscia, but it seems unlikely that Street would take any high-leverage innings, making him largely irrelevant in fantasy should he return.
