Expected return: Late April

LHP Kyle Freeland (left elbow strain)
Expected return: In a month to six weeks
Freeland and manager Bud Black said it's their understanding that there was no damage to the ulnar collateral ligament in the elbow, so Freeland should be able to recover with rest, exercise and a Minor League rehab assignment. Freeland said his injury occurred during his April 14 start in Toronto. (Last updated: April 19)

1B Kris Bryant (low back strain)
Expected return: TBD
Bryant was gradually improving from an injury he sustained when he crashed into the right-field wall in Toronto on April 13, but a lack of steady progress led the club -- which also faced the prospect of playing with a short roster for multiple games -- to place him on the injured list. Bryant, hitting .149 with one homer through 13 games this year, has missed considerable time since signing a seven-year contract before the 2022 season. (Last updated: April 19)

RHP Daniel Bard (right forearm)
Expected return: 2025
Bard, who tore the meniscus in his left knee while playing catch prior to Spring Training and underwent surgery, had a setback rehabbing and will undergo season-ending surgery on his right arm on May 1. The Rockies placed him on the 60-day IL to add LHP Ty Blach to the active roster.

Bard, 38, is in the final year of a two-year, $19 million contract. Bard has said he would like to return after a year of rehab, but he will see how he feels and consult his family before committing to pitching again. Read more>> (Last updated: April 21)
