Mike Trout Has Setback In Return From Calf Injury

Jul 26, 2021 9:51 AM

Mike Trout has had a setback in his return from a calf strain.

On July 19th, Trout said he was "really, really close" to beginning a rehab assignment.

One week later, that rehab assignment still hasn't begun because he still "feels something," Los Angeles Angels manager Joe Maddon said. "He just feels it a little bit in that area, when he really tries to move quickly."

Trout has played in just 36 games this season due to the injury.

'Frustrated' Jacob deGrom Heads To IL With Forearm Tightness

Jul 19, 2021 9:54 AM

The New York Mets have placed Jacob deGrom on the 10-day injured list retroactive to July 15 with tightness in his right forearm.

The right-hander felt discomfort Friday while throwing a bullpen session, Luis Rojas said. An MRI hours later showed there was forearm tightness but no structural damage.

Rojas says that deGrom will not throw again until the discomfort goes away.

"I'm frustrated," deGrom said. "I don't know what else to say. I guess it's good news whenever structurally, everything looks good, but ... the level of frustration now is really high."

deGrom is 7-2 with a major-league-leading 1.08 ERA in 15 starts this season despite being hampered by multiple ailments.

Chicago's Eloy Jimenez Set To Begin Rehab Assignment

Jul 9, 2021 9:25 AM

Chicago White Sox outfielder Eloy Jimenez says he's completely healthy after rupturing his left pectoral in March and will begin a rehab assignment Friday at Class A Winston-Salem.

"I feel better than in spring training," Jimenez said. "I feel like 110 percent -- let's say 200 percent. I feel pretty normal. I can go do my swing and finish, and it's not going to hurt."

Jimenez was injured while attempting to catch a home run ball over the outfield wall in a spring game and had surgery shortly after.

"They said six months, I'm going to be back," he said. "I'm back ... before what they said."

The White Sox haven't placed a timetable on Jimenez's return to the majors, but he thinks he could be ready by the end of July.

Dodgers Place Clayton Kershaw On IL With Forearm Inflammation

Jul 8, 2021 10:03 AM

The Los Angeles Dodgers have placed Clayton Kershaw on the injured list with left forearm inflammation.

"I don't know how long it's going to be," Dave Roberts said of Kershaw's absence. "We're trying to be smart about this and understand that we have the All-Star break. Obviously, there is a lot left of the season, so pushing him doesn't make a whole lot of sense."

Kershaw is 9-7 with a 3.39 ERA in 106 innings this season.

Marlins' Sixto Sanchez Will Miss Season Following Shoulder Surgery

Jul 6, 2021 9:27 AM

Sixto Sanchez will miss the rest of the season after an MRI revealed a small tear in his right shoulder on Monday.

He will have arthroscopic surgery, with the Miami Marlins hoping he will be ready to return in time for spring training next year.

Sanchez, 22, had an impressive debut for the Marlins in 2020. He went 3-2 in seven starts last year, sporting a 3.46 ERA with 33 strikeouts in 39 innings. He also made two postseason appearances.

He did not appear for Miami this regular season, as he battled shoulder soreness. Sanchez recently experienced a setback while increasing velocity in a throwing program.

"Obviously, awful news starting with him and for us as an organization," Don Mattingly said. "I know we'd like to take the conservative route and hope we wouldn't get to this, but obviously we have."

Chris Sale Ready To Return 'Sooner Rather Than Later'

Jul 2, 2021 8:21 AM

Chris Sale feels as though he's getting closer to a return to the Boston Red Sox.

Sale threw two innings of live batting practice earlier this week and said he's ready to return "sooner rather than later." He believes he could be the missing piece for the Red Sox as they contend for a World Series title.

"That's the plan," Sale said. "Our staff has done a hell of a job up to this point. ... We've got the best offense in baseball and you've got to throw the ball too, and our guys have done an unbelievable job keeping us in games and putting up big starts when we need it. And for me, I just gotta come in and do my job."

Sale underwent Tommy John surgery on March 30, 2020. He is potentially on track to return to Boston's rotation in August.
