Fantasy Baseball Injury Report: Ketel Marte, Rich Hill, Trevor Story
It’s time for the Week 13 edition of the Fantasy Baseball Injury Report, and we have all the latest news and updates from around the league. There are all kinds of big names on this list and as we get closer to the All-Star break, there are likely more breaks coming for guys that are dealing with minor injuries, so make sure you are checking Fantasypros daily for all of your injury updates.
Here are a few more injuries to track this week.
Ketel Marte (SS – ARI)
He had to come out a game early June 21 with cramping in his groin. He is currently listed as day-to-day and was not in the lineup over the weekend. It looks like the injury is not serious, and he should be in the lineup early this week.
Rich Hill (SP – LAD)
Hill had to come out of his last start June 19 and was placed on the 10-day injured list June 20 with a left forearm strain. He has been shut down 3-4 weeks and is obviously facing an extended absence. Julio Urias and Ross Stripling are in line to take his spot in the rotation, and the Dodgers have not officially named either one the beneficiary at this point. It could be a combination of the two in an opener situation to begin with, but regardless they should both be owned because of the huge upside.
Trevor Story (SS – COL)
He hit the 10-day injured list June 20 with a thumb sprain. He underwent an MRI and will not need surgery, but there is not a set timetable to return at this point. There is obviously a wide range of outcomes as far as a return date depending on the extent of the injury, and Fantasypros will keep you updated as soon as there is news to report.
Adalberto Mondesi (SS – KC)
Mondesi hit the injured list June 20 with groin tightness. He does not have a set timetable for his return.
Jose Berrios (SP – MIN)
Berrios had to be removed from his last start with a blister issue on his ring finger. He might be able to make his next start June 28.
Byron Buxton (OF – MIN)
Buxton was placed on the 10-day injured list June 18, retroactive to June 15, with a wrist contusion. He may be able to return at some point this week.
Mike Clevinger (SP – CLE)
He is back on the 10-day injured list with a sprained ankle that he suffered on June 17. He could possibly return near the end of June. This is even more disappointing because he is coming off a two-month absence with a back injury.
Pablo Lopez (SP – MIA)
Lopez was placed on the 10-day injured list with a right shoulder strain June 19. A MRI revealed no structural damage, but he is currently without a set return date at this point.
Noah Syndergaard (SP – NYM)
Syndergaard was placed on the 10-day injured list June 16 with a hamstring strain. He threw a live bullpen session this week and may be out for the minimum.
Victor Robles (OF – WSH)
Robles had to come out of the game June 22 with symptoms of dehydration. He is currently listed as day-to-day and should be able to return early this week.
Blake Treinen (RP – OAK)
Treinen was placed on the injured list with a rotator cuff strain. He does not currently have a timetable to return. Liam Hendriks seems to be in line for saves in the absence of Treinen.
Justin Smoak (1B – TOR)
Smoak hit the 10-day injured list June 18, retroactive to June 15, with a quad strain. There is no set timetable for his return at this point.
Jordan Hicks (RP – STL)
Hicks had to be removed from the game June 22 with tendinitis in his right triceps. He is currently listed as day-to-day and is not expected to miss extended time.
Gregory Polanco (OF – PIT)
Polanco was placed on the 10-day injured list June 22, retroactive to June 19, with posterior shoulder inflammation. It is not clear when he will be able to return.
Hunter Pence (OF – TEX)
Pence is on the 10-day injured list with a groin strain. He was put on the injured list June 17 and might be able to return after a minimum stay on the shelf.
Diego Castillo (RP – TB)
Castillo was placed on the 10-day injured list June 23 with shoulder inflammation. There is not a set timetable for his return.
Yandy Diaz (3B – TB)
Diaz hit the 10-day injured list June 19, retroactive to June 17, with discomfort in his hamstring. He does not have a set date to return.
Rafael Devers (3B – BOS)
Devers is currently listed as day-to-day with a hamstring strain. He was out of the lineup this weekend and might be able to return early this week. He did pinch-hit June 21.
