Astros reliever Joe Smith out 6-8 months after rupturing Achilles tendon

The Astros could be missing a veteran bullpen piece for the first half of the 2019 season.

Reliever Joe Smith ruptured his Achilles tendon last week and is expected to miss six to eight months after undergoing surgery Tuesday, the team announced.

For those wanting another demonstration of the fungibility of relievers….

White Sox may shut down Eloy Jimenez following quad injury

White Sox’ no. 1 prospect Eloy Jimenez is likely to be removed from Dominican Winter League play following a recent quad injury, Bruce Levine of WSCR-AM reports. While the injury happened fairly close to the end of Jimenez’s scheduled playing time this offseason, it’s still of some concern for the club as the 22-year-old outfielder continues to move closer to his major league entrance in 2019.

On the plus side for the White Sox, this gives them a perfect excuse to play games with service time.

Tigers’ Francisco Liriano: Exits with injury

As someone who will always remember Francisco Liriano as The One That Got Away fifteen years ago, it’s a legitimate surprise (to me, at least) that he’s still in the majors.

Didi Gregorius possibly out for season with cartilage tear in wrist

Less than 24 hours after celebrating the clinching of a Wild Card spot, the Yankees suffered two losses. First, the team dropped the series finale to the Orioles in deflating fashion. The worse loss, however, came with Aaron Boone’s postgame conference. It’s here that he told reporters that Yankees shortstop Didi Gregorius suffered a cartilage tear in his right wrist.

The injury occurred last night, as Gregorius scored on Aaron Hicks’ walk-off hit. Didi slid head first into home, scoring the winning run, but tearing the cartilage in his wrist in the process. According to Bryan Hoch, he underwent an MRI and received a cortisone shot. It is possible that this ends the season for the Yankees shortstop.

For those curious, for all the fuss at the start of the season, Gregorius ended up with 0.5 WAR and 0.5 WAA more than last year- slightly better at both getting walks and power, but static at everything else.

Twins’ Tyler Austin on nasty spill: ‘The wall kind of snuck up on me’

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Twins first baseman Tyler Austin said he was OK after landing on his back as he made a terrific but scary catch on a foul pop-up in the sixth inning of Sunday’s game against the Kansas City Royals.

Austin, who has been dealing with back soreness that has affected his playing time, was replaced in the lineup an inning after flipping head first over a padded railing and falling about six feet onto concrete in an unoccupied section of sunken seats along the first-base line. Austin easily could have landed on an empty seat, or his head. Teammates and medical staff rushed to his aid, but Austin calmed them down.

“The wall kind of snuck up on me,” Austin said. “I landed straight on my back, and it’s been taking a beating, but I feel good right now. I just wish there had been some people sitting in that section, they might have helped me out a little bit.”

Walls have a nasty habit of doing things like that.
