October 3rd, 2022

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

Kevin Gausman, Blue Jays

Gausman left his final start of the regular season after just three innings Sunday with a cut on his right middle finger. More >

Max Fried, Spencer Strider and Ozzie Albies, Braves

Fried had to leave his start against the Mets on Friday night after five innings and 71 pitches due to the onset of a stomach bug. Manager Brian Snitker said Fried was feeling "a little bit" better on Saturday. Fried came to the ballpark and received treatment, but he was sent home prior to Saturday's game so he could rest. On Sunday, Fried said he was feeling better. The left-hander could start the regular season finale on Wednesday if the NL East hasn't yet been decided.

Strider (left oblique soreness) has not yet been cleared to resume throwing. It appears he will not be ready to pitch if Atlanta is playing in the Wild Card Series round.

Albies (fractured right pinky) took ground balls Friday with a smaller cast than he had been wearing previously. He hopes to be back in the Braves' lineup during the postseason. More >

Jacob deGrom, Starling Marte and Darin Ruf, Mets

deGrom exited Friday's game after only 86 pitches due to a blister on the middle finger of his throwing hand, though both he and manager Buck Showalter called the move precautionary.

Marte (non-displaced fracture of right middle finger) still hasn't resumed hitting or throwing. The best case scenario, according to manager Buck Showalter on Monday, is a return for the start of the postseason.

Ruf was placed on the 10-day injured list Friday with a neck strain. The club hopes he'll be ready to go by the time the National League Division Series begins. More >

Julio Rodríguez, Mariners

Rodríguez (lower back) remains on track to return to Seattle's lineup Monday. Rodríguez went through a battery of sprinting drills around the bases and took fly balls in the outfield ahead of Sunday's series finale against Oakland. The rookie was also slated to "get a ton of swings" in the cage and off the simulated pitch machine at T-Mobile Park, per manager Scott Servais. More >

Chris Taylor, Dodgers

Taylor felt tightness in his neck after taking batting practice and ground balls and was scratched from the Dodgers’ lineup on Saturday. Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Taylor’s injury is “not great” and he’ll continue to be monitored on a day-to-day basis. More >

Mike Trout, Angels

Trout returned to the lineup Sunday. The three-time MVP was not in the starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Rangers after he fouled a ball off his right foot during Friday's contest. More >

Luis Arraez, Twins

Arraez, who leads the AL in batting average with Aaron Judge in pursuit of the Triple Crown, was not in the lineup Sunday. He's been dealing with a hamstring injury.

Brad Hand, Phillies

Hand (left elbow tendinitis) played catch from 120 feet on Sunday in Philadelphia. Interim manager Rob Thomson said Hand could throw off a mound Monday, with a live batting practice session planned for Wednesday. More >

David Peralta, Rays

Peralta exited the Rays’ series finale against the Astros on Sunday after one at-bat due to tightness in his right hip. More >

Logan Webb, Giants

After being eliminated from postseason contention, the Giants decided to shut down Webb (low back strain) for the rest of the season to try to preserve his arm heading into next year. More >

Zack Britton and Clay Holmes, Yankees

Britton faced two batters on Friday and exited the game with left arm fatigue. He was placed on the 60-day IL on Saturday.

Holmes sustained a right shoulder strain during an appearance on Monday. An MRI revealed the strain and Holmes received a cortisone injection, but manager Aaron Boone said Friday that there is no guarantee Holmes will be ready for Game 1 of the ALDS, which opens on Oct. 11. More >

Salvador Perez, Royals

Perez was out of Sunday’s lineup after exiting Saturday’s game early with left thumb soreness. More >

Eric Hosmer, Red Sox

Red Sox manager Alex Cora projects Hosmer (lower back inflammation) will be activated and in the starting lineup on Monday night for the start of the final series of the season against the Rays. More >

Michael Kopech, White Sox

Kopech underwent surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee Saturday, the White Sox announced. The right-hander is expected to be ready when Spring Training begins next year. He had already been shut down for the season due to right shoulder inflammation. More >

Edward Cabrera, Marlins

Cabrera had to exit his start against the Brewers on Saturday night after three innings because he aggravated his right ankle at the end of the third. It was the same ankle he strained in his previous outing, which he also had to leave early. More >
