Kenta Maeda (MIN) – Maeda is set to have season-ending surgery on his right elbow. They haven’t yet determined if he’ll need Tommy John. If that’s the case he’ll miss all of 2022 as well, but the preliminary reports are that he’s done for 2021.
Ian Anderson (ATL) – Anderson will be activated off the IL to start Sunday’s finale against the Giants.

Yasmani Grandal (CHW) – Tony La Russa believes there’s a chance Grandal returns for the team’s weekend series against the Cubs.
Trevor Story (COL) – Story left the Rockies’ second game on Wednesday with some leg discomfort. The team doesn’t believe the injury is serious and the off day on Thursday will help with some extra rest.
Last Update: August 26, 7:30 am ET

Gio Urshela (NYY) – Urshela should be activated off the IL ahead of Thursday’s game against the Athletics.
Corey Kluber (NYY) – Kluber tossed 3.2 innings in a rehab assignment. As long as there are no setbacks he could rejoin the big league squad in September.

Buster Posey (SF) – Posey left Tuesday night’s game in the fourth inning with right knee discomfort.
Brandon Crawford (SF) – Posey’s teammate, Brandon Crawford, exited Tuesday’s game with lower back tightness. Don’t be surprised if either player receives some time off. The Giants are about to enter a stretch of 16 straight days of baseball with no days off in between so they’ll likely be cautious here.

Cavan Biggio (TOR) – Biggio, who is rehabbing from a back injury, injured his left arm last Friday while attempting to dive on a defensive play.
George Springer (TOR) – Springer ran the bases prior to Tuesday’s game and it sounds like he could return to the lineup sooner rather than later.

Willy Adames (MIL) – Adames left Tuesday’s game after he tweaked his left quadriceps muscle in the first inning. The move was mostly precautionary, but his status is worth monitoring over the next few days.
Eduardo Escobar (MIL) – Escobar was placed on the 10-day IL on Tuesday after straining his hamstring during Sunday’s game.
Kyle Lewis (SEA) – Lewis, who hasn’t played in almost three months, could start a rehab stint as early as this weekend. His timetable for a return to the M’s is still unclear though.

Tim Anderson (CHW) – Anderson has missed the last three games with fatigue and soreness in his legs. He was seen participating in drills prior to Monday’s game against the Blue Jays so it doesn’t look like an IL stint is imminent.
Luis Severino (NYY) – It’s worth mentioning that while Severino’s latest MRI came back clean and showing no structural damage it’s still a little unclear when he could potentially return.
Last Update: August 23, 8:30 pm ET

Mike Foltynewicz (TEX) - The Rangers' right-hander has been better recently, but has been placed on the Covid-19 list and is expected to miss time because of it.
Noah Syndergaard (NYM) - Syndergaard is expected to begin a rehab assignment this week. When he returns to the majors, he'll join the bullpen, at least for the remainder of this season.

Last Update: August 18, 10:00 pm ET
Mike Trout (LAA) – For the first time in about a month, Trout participated in on-field drills. Now this doesn’t necessarily mean we have a timetable for his return.

Joe Ross (WAS) - It was originally thought that Joe Ross would need Tommy John surgery and that his season was over, but after further review, only one of those things remain true; his season is over. The Nationals are hoping Ross will be ready for spring training.
Cole Hamels (LAD) - That didn't last long. It actually didn't even happen, officially. Before Hamels ever made an official appearance, he felt something in his left arm during a simulated game and has been placed on the 60-day IL, ending his campaign.
Chris Bassitt (OAK) - In a very scary incident, Bassitt was struck with a line drive in the head and was stretchered off the field. The A's have since released a statement stating that he is “conscious and aware."

Miles Mikolas (STL) – Mikolas is slated to start the team’s series opener against the Pirates on Friday night.
Last Update: August 16, 9:45 pm ET
Luis Severino (NYY) – Severino underwent an MRI on Monday and we still don’t have many details as Aaron Boone and the organization have been hush hush on the matter. That can’t be good news so we’ll continue to watch the Yankees kick the tires regarding his injury.

Francisco Lindor (NYM) – Lindor has been out since mid-July could return for the team’s next homestand, but that’s still about a week away.
Jesse Winker (CIN) – Winker was placed on the 10-day with an intercostal strain. What does that mean? Basically he’s experiencing pain in his diaphragm/rib area so it could be incredibly uncomfortable for him to breathe, let alone swing a baseball bat.
Yu Darvish (SD) – Darvish left his last start on Thursday with lower back tightness and the Padres officially placed him on the IL retroactive to last Friday.
Adalberto Mondesi (KC) – Mondesi’s been plagued by injuries all season long and he’s going to be re-evaluated after experiencing oblique tightness.
Joe Ross (WSH) – Ross, who previously underwent Tommy John surgery in 2017, was placed on the 10-day IL with a partial tear of his UCL. He’ll be re-evaluated but this situation is looking bleak.
