Fantasy Baseball Injury Updates: Royce Lewis, Nolan Jones, Mike Trout

Fantasy Baseball Injury Updates: Royce Lewis, Nolan Jones, Mike Trout

During football season, people complain about how many injuries there are, but those people don’t follow fantasy baseball. Tracking fantasy baseball injuries is a full-time task because we have players going on and off the injured list (IL) all season. It’s a frustrating aspect of fantasy baseball, but it does allow you to feast on the waiver wire and trade market to capitalize on some of these moves.

With that in mind, let’s dive into the fantasy baseball injury updates for this week.

2024 Fantasy Baseball Injury Stashes (Week 8)

Hitters to Stash Right Now

Here are fantasy baseball injury updates for hitters on the mend.

Royce Lewis (3B – MIN)

Royce Lewis has been off the field more than he’s been on it over the last three years, but he’s a stud when he’s healthy. The Twins’ third baseman suffered a severe quad strain on Opening Day and is finally doing some rehab work. He did some light running on Tuesday and still has numerous steps in his rehab before a lengthy rehab assignment. He definitely won’t be back until June at the earliest. A July return is not out of the question.

Nolan Jones (OF – COL)

Nolan Jones has been one of the biggest busts in fantasy, but a back issue was clearly killing his numbers. In any case, Colorado put him on the IL so he could get right, and that’s just what’s happening. He’s already joined Triple-A to kickstart a rehab assignment, which could start as soon as today. He’ll need at least 10-20 at-bats before returning to the Rockies, but he could be back next week.

Mike Trout (OF – LAA)

Mike Trout has had trouble staying on the field the last few years. A torn meniscus will sideline him for at least the next month or two. It’s sad because he was in the middle of a renaissance season, recording 10 homers and six steals through 29 games. Those six steals surprised us, but knee surgery will surely slow that down when he returns later in the season. Something tells me this injury will last longer than fantasy managers hope for, but we don’t want to speculate until we hear more.
