Pedroia gets good news on latest knee injury

Boston Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia said he received good news about the irritation in his left knee that led to his return to the 10-day injured list.

The 35-year-old was activated April 9 after starting the season on the injured list with inflammation in the knee but left Wednesday night’s game against the New York Yankees in the second inning. He was examined Thursday, when Boston put him back on the IL.

“More kind of scared me than anything,” Pedroia said before Friday’s game at Tampa Bay. “I was nervous, obviously, to feel that. We’re just going to let it calm down for a few days and then it should be all right. I hadn’t had any issues up until this point.”

Mind you, if the story goes as it has so far, that means he’ll be playing on a peg leg sometime in 2020….

Rangers send Rougned Odor to the injured list with knee sprain

Second baseman Rougned Odor has been placed on the 10-day injured list, the Rangers revealed Saturday. Odor was removed from the lineup on Friday with right knee soreness, which was then characterized as a knee sprain upon further evaluation. Per Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, he’s expected to miss at least two weeks in recovery.

Does this mean that Jose Bautista won after all?

Diamondbacks outfielder Steven Souza Jr. needs season-ending knee surgery after slipping on home plate

On Tuesday, the Arizona Diamondbacks announced outfielder Steven Souza Jr. will undergo season-ending surgery to repair a substantial left knee injury that includes an ACL tear, LCL tear, partial PCL tear, and posterior lateral capsule tear. Souza exited Monday’s exhibition game against the Chicago White Sox at Chase Field after a scary slip while he was crossing home plate.

Souza, 29, missed most of 2018 because of injuries. He hit .220 with five home runs and 29 RBIs in 272 plate appearances (72 games) in last year. He had been pegged to serve as Arizona’s everyday right fielder, but the D-Backs will likely use veteran Adam Jones to fill the spot.

Jones signed a one-year, $3 million contract with the Diamondbacks earlier this month. That leaves Ketel Marte in for the everyday role in center field and David Peralta in left. Jarrod Dyson projects to come off the bench as the Diamondbacks’ fourth outfielder.

Expecting people to start to argue that players need not run the bases in 3, 2, 1….

Orioles DH Trumbo to begin season on injured list

Baltimore Orioles designated hitter Mark Trumbo will open the season on the injured list, manager Brandon Hyde confirmed Sunday.

Trumbo, who led the majors with 47 home runs in 2016, has batted .167 in 13 plate appearances this spring as he recovers from offseason surgery on his right knee.

“We’re going to let him continue to do his rehab down here,” Hyde told reporters in Sarasota, Fla., according to MLB.com. “I give him so much credit for everything he’s done during his whole rehab process. Give him a ton of credit for trying to come back from a tough injury earlier than anybody has.”

Mark Got His Bat seems to be well-liked among a certain set, but I wouldn’t recommend it for everyone.

Indians’ Jose Ramirez Diagnosed With Left Knee Contusion, Opening Day in Question

Two days after the Indians announced that shortstop Francisco Lindor and second baseman Jason Kipnis will begin the season on the injured list, Jose Ramirez fouled a pitch off the inside of his left knee and was carted off the field in the third inning of Sunday’s game vs. the White Sox.

X-rays for Ramirez revealed no broken bone, but he was diagnosed with a left knee contusion, according to MLB.com. The Indians gave no immediate timetable for his return, which puts his status for Opening Day is in question. Ramirez finished third in the American League MVP voting in both 2017 and 2018, and his 136 OPS+ ranks 11th among all players since 2016, the year he became an everyday player.

At the rate things are going, the odds are getting increasingly high that someone could win the AL Central with a sub-.500 record….
