May 26, 2019 1:10 PM

The Astros placed outfielder George Springer on the 10-day injured list Saturday with a left hamstring strain, but could be close to getting second baseman Jose Altuve back from injury.

Houston general manager Jeff Luhnow said Springer suffered a Grade 2 sprain, but would not give a timetable for how long the outfielder would be out.

Houston manager AJ Hinch said Springer will miss more than 10 days.

Giancarlo Stanton Suffers Another Injury Setback

May 23, 2019 8:14 AM

Giancarlo Stanton began a rehab assignment earlier this week, but the New York Yankees have returned him to the injured list with left calf tightness.

He originally landed on the IL with a biceps strain after just three games. He then strained his shoulder, sidelining him further.

Aaron Boone claimed Stanton's removal from the rehab game was "precautionary."

Yoenis Cespedes Breaks Ankle In Ranch Accident

May 21, 2019 8:08 AM

Yoenis Cespedes hasn't played this season and the New York Mets may not have him for the rest of 2019.

Cespedes broke his right ankle in an accident on his ranch, the club announced on Monday.

The slugger has not played this season after undergoing surgery to remove calcification on both of his heels. Those surgeries were expected to keep him sidelined for at least half of this season.

"He had a violent fall in which he stepped in a hole and put his leg and foot in a difficult position," Brodie Van Wagenen said.

Johnny Cueto Hopes To Return In September

May 20, 2019 2:57 AM

Giants right-hander Johnny Cueto threw a bullpen session Saturday, and the team was encouraged enough for manager Bruce Bochy to say the club hopes Cueto can return toward the end of this season.

Cueto, who had major elbow surgery last August, was 18-5 in 2016 and selected to the All-Star Game, but he has since gone 11-10 in the past two years combined.

Miguel Andujar To Have Season-Ending Shoulder Surgery

May 16, 2019 8:53 AM

Miguel Andujar will have season-ending surgery to repair a small labrum tear in his right shoulder.

The New York Yankees announced the decision on Wednesday night after sweeping a double-header against the Baltimore Orioles.

Andujar was initially sidelined by the injury from April 1 to May 3. Upon his return he went 3-for-34 with no extra-base hits and returned in the injured list on Monday.

"Hurt for him a little bit," Aaron Boone said. "But know this is also just the beginning of the road back."

White Sox Lose Carlos Rodon, Nate Jones For Season

May 14, 2019 7:54 AM

The Chicago White Sox will be without Carlos Rodon and Nate Jones for the remainder of the season.

Rodon is scheduled for Tommy John surgery to replace the ligament in his left elbow on Wednesday in Los Angeles.

Jones had surgery Monday to repair a flexor mass tear in his right forearm.

Rodon started on Opening Day for the White Sox. He made seven starts before he was placed on the injured list on May 2 with elbow inflammation.

"Given that he has yet to undergo the surgery, it's still too early to give you a precise timeline in terms of his potential return," Rick Hahn said. "However, in general, given the timing of the surgery, it is reasonable to expect Carlos to be able to rejoin us during the second half of the 2020 season."

Derek Holland Rips Giants, Says He Faked Injury

May 12, 2019 11:39 AM

Derek Holland has criticized the San Francisco Giants' front office and says he faked the injury that led to a stint on the injured list.

Holland was demoted to the bullpen on Saturday night and said he has "no idea what they're doing" in the front office.

The lefty gave up seven runs in 2 2/3 innings Thursday during a 12-11 loss to the Colorado Rockies, his first outing after going on the IL because of a left index finger bone bruise.
