Stay up-to-date with all the latest news on injured and recovering players from across Major League Baseball.

Adolis García, Evan Carter and Dane Dunning, Rangers

García was scratched from Sunday's lineup with a right forearm issue after a collision with Marcus Semien in shallow right field in the game the previous night, manager Bruce Bochy said.

Carter (lower back stiffness) was back in Sunday's lineup after not starting in any of the Rangers' previous nine games. The outfielder pinch-hit on Friday, making his first appearance since May 10.

Dunning (right rotator cuff strain) was scheduled to throw bullpen sessions on Friday and Saturday. If all goes well, Dunning will be ready to return to the starting rotation on the upcoming road trip. More >

Xander Bogaerts and Joe Musgrove, Padres

Bogaerts exited Game 1 of Monday’s split doubleheader against the Braves with a possible left shoulder injury. More >

Manager Mike Shildt said on Sunday that Musgrove (right elbow inflammation) will start Tuesday in Cincinnati. More >

Zach Eflin, Ryan Pepiot and Jeffrey Springs, Rays

Eflin landed on the 15-day IL prior to Monday's game with lower back inflammation. More >

Pepiot (lower left leg contusion) simulated three innings in a bullpen session at Rogers Centre ahead of Friday's series opener against the Blue Jays. He is eligible to return from the IL on Tuesday and may slide back into the rotation for the Rays' home series against the Red Sox.

Springs (Tommy John surgery) threw a two-inning live batting practice session Wednesday and will next pitch in a Rookie-level Florida Complex League game on Monday. More >

Blake Snell and Alex Cobb, Giants

Manager Bob Melvin said Snell is on track to return to the Giants' rotation next week, possibly as soon as Wednesday at Pittsburgh. Snell has been out since April 19 due to a left adductor strain, but he's looked dominant in his two rehab starts, tossing nine hitless innings with 17 strikeouts in two appearances between Single-A San Jose and Triple-A Sacramento.

Cobb was progressing well in his rehab from offseason hip surgery, but he hit another setback when he felt mild shoulder irritation before throwing a bullpen session on April 16. Cobb attempted to resume throwing after that, but he was shut down again after continuing to experience soreness in his shoulder. More >

Trea Turner and Taijuan Walker, Phillies

Turner (left hamstring strain) has been taking ground balls and doing light running drills on the field. He's expected to take batting practice on Tuesday.

Walker (left big toe contusion) threw approximately 40 pitches in a bullpen session prior to Sunday's series finale against the Nationals at Citizens Bank Park. He said the session went "great" and added that he feels "80-90 percent," though he's not completely pain-free yet. More >

Austin Riley and Travis d'Arnaud, Braves

Riley (left side inflammation) came to Truist Park feeling no discomfort in his left side on Sunday. The Braves allowed him to take grounders, but they will wait at least one more day before clearing him to begin taking swings.

d’Arnaud exited Friday night's game against the Padres because of the dizziness he felt after his mask was smashed by a foul ball in the fifth inning Friday night. Tests performed on Saturday gave the Braves further confidence that d'Arnaud avoided what would have been a fifth career concussion, but he remained out of the lineup for Game 1 of Monday's split doubleheader. More >

Nico Hoerner and Dansby Swanson, Cubs

Both Hoerner and Swanson went through a pregame workout on Sunday at Wrigley Field and are on a path to rejoin the Cubs' lineup for Tuesday's game against the Braves. Swanson (right knee) has been on the injured list since May 10 (retroactive to May 8), while Hoerner has been on the bench due to a left hamstring issue since May 13. More >

Kodai Senga and Tylor Megill, Mets

Senga, who had advanced to throwing live batting practice in late April before moving backward in his progression, seems to be making progress once again: he is scheduled to throw a bullpen session on Sunday, three days after his previous session.

Megill (right shoulder strain) is scheduled to return to the rotation Monday in Cleveland. More >

DJ LeMahieu and Gerrit Cole, Yankees

LeMahieu (non-displaced fracture of right foot) began a rehab assignment with Double-A Somerset on Friday, and he might be ready to return to the Yankees' lineup during their nine-game West Coast road trip from May 24-June 2 against the Padres, Angels and Giants, according to manager Aaron Boone.

Cole (right elbow discomfort) tossed two simulated innings in the Yankee Stadium bullpen on Saturday and said that all went well. Assuming Cole’s recovery is uneventful, his next step could be facing hitters in live batting practice, though he is still thought to be several weeks away from a return. More >

Chas McCormick, José Urquidy and Luis Garcia, Astros

McCormick (right hamstring discomfort) was in the lineup at DH on Sunday for Double-A Corpus Christi at San Antonio in what should be his final rehab outing before rejoining the Astros.

Urquidy (right forearm strain) will make one more rehab start before the end of the month, which will set him up to join the Astros' rotation for the first time in 2024.

Garcia threw 20 pitches in his latest bullpen session on Saturday as he continues to rehab from the Tommy John surgery he underwent in May 2023. The expectation is that he will be able to rejoin the Astros' rotation at some point in the middle of the season. More >

Jorge Polanco and J.P. Crawford, Mariners

Polanco (right hamstring tightness) was out of the lineup Sunday for the fifth straight game. He completed some explosive running drills on the field ahead of the Mariners' series finale in Baltimore but was still not 100% moving around on the field, manager Scott Servais said. It sounds like the Mariners will make a final decision on an IL stint by Monday in New York.

Crawford (right oblique strain) stayed back in Seattle to receive treatment after being hit on the right hand during a rehab game with Triple-A Tacoma on Wednesday. He began throwing and swinging on Saturday, and it's possible that he joins the Mariners at some point during their four-game series in New York, which runs from Monday through Thursday. More >

Devin Williams, Brewers

It was just 25 tosses from about 60 feet, but Saturday's flat-ground throwing session marked a milestone for Williams, who has been sidelined since mid-March by stress fractures in his back. Williams still faces a long progression, however. He said the current timeline has him pitching in games by late July. More >

Ke'Bryan Hayes, Pirates

Hayes (low back inflammation) is expected to resume baseball activities on Monday. More >

Steven Kwan, Guardians

Kwan (left hamstring strain) has been asymptomatic while running and taking batting practice on the field. As long as that continues, Guardians president of baseball operations Chris Antonetti said the hope is that Kwan could begin his rehab assignment in seven to 10 days. More >

Garrett Whitlock, Red Sox

Whitlock (left oblique strain) experienced elbow soreness on Thursday after pitching 4 2/3 innings in a rehab start with Triple-A Worcester on Wednesday. He will undergo a battery of tests, including imaging. Manager Alex Cora expects the club to have more info on his condition by Monday. More >

Tim Anderson, Marlins

Anderson (lower back soreness) will play at Triple-A Jacksonville on Saturday and Sunday before the club reevaluates, manager Skip Schumaker said. More >

Yariel Rodríguez, Blue Jays

Rodríguez (thoracic spine inflammation) is scheduled to make a rehab start Tuesday for Triple-A Buffalo and will likely need one or two more following that. More >
