Yankees closer Aroldis Chapman is dealing with left knee tendinitis (again). This is going to be a chronic issue for him. Rest, rehab, a Cho-Pat strap, and sometimes PRP can be used for pain relief. Expect him to play through it.
Jeff Samardzija back to the DL with shoulder inflammation
San Francisco Giants pitcher Jeff Samardzija has been sent to the DL for second time with right shoulder inflammation. He missed a month last time. Could range from rotator cuff, labrum, AC joint, biceps tendon or possibly GIRD. It’s possible a steroid injection could be tried, but I wouldn’t be surprised if they tried PRP or BMAC. Expect the Giants to shut him down for at least 2-3 weeks. RTP 4-6 weeks.
Kevin Pillar on the DL with SC joint sprain
Blue Jays placed Kevin Pillar on the 10-day disabled list with a right SC joint sprain. Pillar got very lucky with this injury, as a fracture of the distal clavicle could have potentially been life-threatening. The good news is that he did not fracture the clavicle, instead damaging the ligaments that attach the clavicle to the sternum. This can be a painful injury with limited treatment options. Rest, rehab, and NSAIDs are main treatment options. RTP 4-6 weeks.
Eduardo Rodriguez lands on DL with ankle sprain
Update: Rodriguez has reportedly ‘serious’ damage to the ligaments of his ankle, but will not require surgery. Likely he has a Grade 2 lateral ankle sprain. He will be placed in a boot for 2 weeks and then be re-evaluated. RTP 4-6 weeks, possibly longer.
As expected, the Red Sox placed Eduardo Rodriguez on the 10-day disabled list with a right ankle sprain. Typically, 2-3 weeks RTP.
