INJURY UPDATES

Day to day

UTL Jon Berti (lower extremity tightness)
Berti has missed the past two games, though manager Don Mattingly was optimistic about MLB's stolen base leader returning on July 6.

"He's been dealing with it, but I feel like the two days is going to be really beneficial," Mattingly said. "He's a guy that we don't want to lose at this point. He's been too valuable, does too many things. To push him today didn't make any sense." -- Christina De Nicola (Last updated: July 5)

10-day IL

OF Jorge Soler (bilateral pelvis inflammation)
Expected return: Mid July
Soler is rehabbing with core and mobility training in Jupiter, Fla. He was placed on the 10-day IL with bilateral pelvis inflammation, retroactive to June 29. According to manager Don Mattingly, Soler had an injection.

"I think Jorge was trying to get through this back pain,” Mattingly said prior to the July 1 game in Washington. “One day good, couple days bad, one at-bat good, some bad. It was getting to the point where he really couldn't do the work that he needed to do to be sharp. So, we had to get rid of it." -- Christina De Nicola (Last updated: July 5)

2B Jazz Chisholm Jr. (right lower back strain)
Expected return: Mid July
Chisholm is in Jupiter, Fla., doing mobility exercises. Like Jorge Soler, Chisholm got an injection. He had returned to the lineup on June 28 for the first time since June 25 before being replaced in the bottom of the second inning. An MRI on June 29 revealed the severity of the injury, and the pain was "really up there" per Chisholm.

"At the end of this thing, it's going to be two weeks before he's done anything," manager Don Mattingly said. "Trying to be conservative, you want to make sure he's healthy for the long haul." -- Christina De Nicola (Last updated: July 5)

15-day IL

RHP Edward Cabrera (right elbow tendinitis)
Expected return: July
Cabrera threw a 25-pitch bullpen on July 4, and his next scheduled session is on July 7. He was scheduled to pitch for Triple-A Jacksonville on June 22 but did not.

Manager Don Mattingly said like any young pitcher, Cabrera is trying to figure out what's soreness vs. injury. Cabrera was placed on the IL on June 15 (retroactive to June 13). He last pitched for Miami on June 12 against the Astros, going a season-low 3 2/3 innings in his third start of 2022. Cabrera also dealt with right biceps fatigue in early April.

"I know there was a little bit of a setback from the standpoint of [it] felt like we were moving forward, threw a 'pen and then we got a little bit of soreness in the elbow," Mattingly said on June 28. "Then we just slowed down, and we're back going again." -- Christina De Nicola (Last updated: July 5)

RHP Cody Poteet (right elbow muscle)
Expected return: July
Poteet started a rehab assignment on July 4 in Jupiter, throwing two innings. He last started May 25 against the Rays, reporting soreness in his elbow to the medical staff. -- Christina De Nicola (Last updated: July 5)
