Here's a roundup of the latest injury news across the Majors.
Mike Trout and Shohei Ohtani, Angels
Trout did not travel with the club to San Diego, as he is currently on the East Coast attending to a personal family matter. The Angels had been hoping to get Trout back on Thursday, when he's eligible to come off the 10-day disabled list, but this development has cast doubt on his availability. Trout has been sidelined since Aug. 1 with an inflamed right wrist. More >
Ohtani completed a 33-pitch bullpen session without incident on Monday. He estimated that he threw at about a 70 percent effort level, a higher intensity than his first session off the mound on Saturday.
Ohtani primarily threw fastballs, though he also incorporated three curveballs and three sliders. Ohtani has not yet thrown his splitter, as he feels it needs less work than his breaking balls, which are feel pitches. The 24-year-old rookie has not pitched for the Angels since June 6 due to a Grade 2 sprain of the ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow. More >
Hyun-Jin Ryu, Alex Wood and Kenley Jansen, Dodgers
Ryu will come off the disabled list to start on Wednesday against the Giants, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said on Sunday. Ryu, who was on the 60-day disabled list with a left groin strain, made two rehab starts at Class A Advanced Rancho Cucamonga and Triple-A Oklahoma City on Aug. 2 and Aug. 7, respectively. He pitched a total of nine innings and allowed just one run on seven hits.
Before his injury on May 3, the left-hander had a 2.12 ERA in six starts with the Dodgers early in the season. The Dodgers are starting to solidify their rotation by bringing Ryu and Wood, who will start on Tuesday, off the disabled list as the National League West race heats up. More >
Speaking to reporters for the first time since he left the club and returned to Los Angeles before the four-game series in Denver this past weekend, Jansen insisted he was feeling good and was upbeat after throwing a 16-pitch "touch-and-feel" bullpen session. His timetable for a return remains uncertain, but Jansen sounded confident he will return before the four-to-six-week recovery time that was originally reported.
Roberts said that Jansen will have more bullpen sessions on Wednesday and Friday. Jansen will also work out in the weight room this week. He will also travel with the club to Seattle for a series during the upcoming weekend. More >

CC Sabathia, Yankees
After tossing six scoreless innings of one-hit ball vs. the Rangers on Sunday, Sabathia was placed on the 10-day disabled list Monday with right knee inflammation.
Though the lefty landed awkwardly on that knee while trying to field a soft grounder back to the mound in the second inning Sunday, he made no mention of discomfort after the game. More >

Brandon Belt, Jeff Samardzija and Brandon Crawford, Giants
Belt's current absence from the Giants' lineup could end as soon as Tuesday, manager Bruce Bochy indicated Monday. Bochy said "a good chance" exists that Belt's Minor League injury rehabilitation stint to test his recovery from a hyperextended right knee is essentially done. Belt was scheduled to play his second game for Triple-A Sacramento on Monday.
Samardzija (right shoulder inflammation) sounded upbeat after pitching the equivalent of two innings while facing teammate Hunter Pence. Tuesday, the Giants likely will decide whether the sidelined No. 3 starter will increase his pitch count in another simulated game or advance to an injury rehab outing.
Samardzija preceded his outing by going through a complete warmup process.
"It was good to be doing that instead of just throwing a bullpen," said Samardzija, who tossed approximately 30 pitches to Pence with a break at the halfway point. Samardzija, who's 1-5 with a 6.25 ERA in 10 starts, tested himself by throwing his entire array of pitches. More >
Crawford left Monday night's game against the Los Angeles Dodgers after colliding with left fielder Gorkys Hernandez during a fourth-inning play. Television cameras caught members of the Giants' athletic training staff examining Crawford's eyes. He batted in the fifth inning, but he was replaced by Alen Hanson afterward. More >
Doug Fister, Nomar Mazara and Adrian Beltre, Rangers
Fister has returned home to finish rehabbing a right knee strain that has sidelined him since June 10 and is unlikely to pitch again for the Rangers this season.
Fister was transferred to the 60-day disabled list on June 17. This is his second stint on the disabled list this season; he missed 13 games with a right hip strain in April. The Rangers signed Fister in the offseason and will have to decide if they want to pick up his $4.5 million option for next season.
Although he'll continue his rehab at home, Fister could return to Arlington in September to be checked out by the Rangers' medical staff. Fister is 1-7 with a 4.50 ERA in 12 starts this season.
Mazara is expected to play nine innings for Double-A Frisco on Tuesday against Arkansas. He has been on the disabled list with a sprained right thumb since July 20. Rangers manager Jeff Banister said he wants to see Mazara play consecutive games in the outfield before making a decision on when he could be activated.
Mazara went 2-for-3 and served as a designated hitter for Triple-A Round Rock on Saturday before the game was suspended in the top of the fifth. He could return as early as Thursday, when the Rangers open a four-game series against the Angels in Arlington. More >
Beltre left Monday night's 5-3 win over the D-backs at Globe Life Park after eight innings when he appeared to strain his left hamstring. He was coming in to score from second on a single by Robinson Chirinos and appeared to feel something rounding third base. He was replaced on defense in the ninth inning by Jurickson Profar. More >

Trevor Bauer, Edwin Encarnacion and Leonys Martin, Indians
The Indians received good news about Bauer's injured right ankle, as X-rays were negative and the righty, who is dealing with a bruise, will likely be able to make his next scheduled start Friday against the Orioles, manager Terry Francona said before Sunday's finale with the White Sox.
Bauer was pitching another gem Saturday night against the White Sox, but he exited in the seventh inning of Cleveland's 3-1 win after being hit in the right ankle by a comebacker off the bat of Jose Abreu. More >
As for Encarnacion, the Indians placed the slugger on the disabled list Sunday with a right hand contusion. Encarnacion said after Friday's game that he had been swinging with one arm to compensate for the bone bruise on his right hand, which occurred when he was hit by a pitch on July 15. Francona said Encarnacion also had some biceps swelling after Saturday's game. More >
Meanwhile, Martin is recovering from a bacterial infection that was considered life threatening as of a few days ago, president of baseball operations Chris Antonetti said Monday. The outlook looks good, according to Antonetti, though Martin's "progress will be measured in weeks, not days." More >

Danny Duffy, Royals
Duffy was placed on the 10-day DL on Monday, retroactive to Sunday, with a left shoulder impingement.
The southpaw, who received an anti-inflammatory injection in his shoulder after Saturday's start vs. the Cardinals, has been dealing with stiffness in his past four starts, manager Ned Yost said. More >
Martin Prado, Miguel Rojas and Lewis Brinson, Marlins
After exiting Game 1 of Monday's doubleheader against the Braves with a left quad strain, Prado is heading back to the disabled list for the third time this season. He previously made two trips due to a right hamstring strain. More >
Rojas was removed in the second inning of Game 2 against the Braves with an apparent left ankle or lower leg ailment. He limped off the field after trying to advance from first to third base on Bryan Holaday's single. Rojas slid into the base, was tagged out by Johan Camargo, and came up favoring his left leg. He limped to the dugout after making the final out of the inning and was replaced at third base by Yadiel Rivera. More >
On the disabled list since July 4 with a right hip bone bruise, Brinson is expected to see game action on Tuesday. The club has yet to finalize if it will be with Double-A Jacksonville or Class A Advanced Jupiter. Wherever he winds up, Brinson will be back in a game for the first time since July 3. The 24-year-old was the Marlins' Opening Day starter and regular in center field until he experienced discomfort in his hip.
The Marlins are hopeful Brinson gets back to the big leagues in a few weeks so he can get about 100 more at-bats before the season ends. Manager Don Mattingly said Brinson has been making progress in the work he's doing at the plate. More >
JaCoby Jones and Michael Fulmer, Tigers
After exiting Sunday's game vs. the Twins with right hamstring tightness, Jones was placed on the 10-day DL on Monday.
Manager Ron Gardenhire said he thinks Jones tweaked the hamstring while making a long run on a catch attempt in the top of the second inning, though the outfielder also hit an infield single and ran into Tyler Austin as the Twins first baseman reached for a high throw in the bottom of the frame. More >
Gardenhire also said Fulmer will make his first rehab start with Class A Advanced Lakeland "in a day or two." Fulmer has been on the DL since Jul 20 with a left oblique strain he sustained in a bullpen session after the All-Star break. More >
Dee Gordon, Sam Tuivailala, Juan Nicasio, Roenis Elias, Dan Altavilla and Hisashi Iwakuma, Mariners
Gordon was initially in Monday's lineup, but was scratched about two hours before game time. The speedster hurt his shoulder sliding into the knee of Astros second baseman Yuli Gurriel on a stolen base on Saturday. He had a pinch-hit single and scored the winning run in the 10th inning on Sunday.
Tuivailala will need surgery on his right Achilles tendon that was hurt on Wednesday in Texas, and manager Scott Servais said the right-hander -- who was acquired two weeks ago from the Cardinals -- is going to be out a "significant amount of time" and may not be ready for the start of Spring Training next season.
Nicasio is getting a second doctor's opinion on his inflamed right knee and is waiting to see whether he'll need surgery. He went on the 10-day disabled list on Aug. 3.
Elias needed 28 pitches to get through two-thirds of an inning of relief for Tacoma in his second rehab outing while issuing three walks with one strikeout on Sunday. Elias is working back from a strained left triceps and came out of the outing without any health issues.
Altavilla threw well in a live batting-practice session with Tacoma over the weekend, Servais said. He likely will throw another BP session but has a chance to begin a Minor League rehab stint within a week.
Iwakuma, who is signed to a Minor League contract, also threw a live BP session, and it went well enough that he could attempt a rehab outing soon as well. More >
Ryan Madson, Nationals
While warming up in the bullpen before pitching the ninth inning on Sunday, Madson said his back trouble began flaring up again, sending pain shooting down his right leg. He did not have control of his curveball or changeup, which reduced him to trusting only his fastball -- and David Bote deposited one into the stands for the walk-off grand slam.
Even though he has been battling the issue for a few days, Madson said Sunday was the first time it was bad enough to affect him on the mound, even though he has given up five earned runs in 1 2/3 innings in his two most recent outings. He believes he should be able to avoid a stint on the disabled list, and arrived at Busch Stadium early on Monday to begin receiving treatment and start taking anti-inflammatories. More >
Scott Schebler, Reds
For the first time since his rehab assignment at Louisville was cut short because of persistent right shoulder soreness on Friday, Schebler resumed a throwing program. With third-base coach Billy Hatcher catching for him on the field at Great American Ball Park, Schebler made approximately 40 throws from a distance of 90 feet.
Most importantly, Schebler felt no pain after throwing. He will likely resume his rehab assignment for a few games before the Reds activate him from the disabled list. Schebler has been out since spraining the AC joint in his right shoulder from a crash into the wall on July 14 at St. Louis. More >

Jharel Cotton, Andrew Triggs, Paul Blackburn and Matt Joyce, A's
Cotton, Triggs and Blackburn began throwing programs Monday, manager Bob Melvin said.
For Cotton and Blackburn, it was the first time they have thrown since their respective injuries. Cotton underwent Tommy John surgery on March 21, and Blackburn has been on the disabled list since July 7 with a right elbow injury.
Melvin said Cotton's recovery is on schedule. He added he's hopeful that both Triggs and Blackburn will make appearances by the end of the season. According to Melvin, Triggs may slot into a bullpen role.
Joyce, who has been on the DL since July 5 with a lumbar strain, said he hit off a tee last week and again on Monday. The plan is for him to take batting practice this week and start a rehab assignment soon.
Joyce, who had never had back issues before, said it just "flared up" on him and that everything is structurally sound. An epidural shot he received a few weeks ago helped a bit, but "it wasn't a magical recovery." It has been hard for him to watch from the bench as the A's have surged into playoff position. More >
