Lengthy Absences for Rays Chris Archer and Dodgers Clayton Kershaw?

Lengthy Absences for Rays Chris Archer and Dodgers Clayton Kershaw?
Inside Injuries June 7, 2018 5:08PM EST

The latest outlooks on key Fantasy standouts from insideinjuries.com

Alex Reyes SP, Cardinals: right lat surgery

Reyes is set to miss another season after a lat injury in his first start back from Tommy John surgery. Reyes initially felt some soreness and tightness during his final rehab start but still made his schedule season debut. Unfortunately he lasted just a few innings because being pulled due to a significant drop in his velocity. Further tests showed a torn lat tendon that will require season-ending surgery. The recovery time is typically around 6 months, so he could be ready to go at the start of Spring Training. But after two very serious injuries, the Cardinals will bring back their top prospect very slowly.

Andrelton Simmons SS, Angels: ankle sprain

Before Tuesday’s game, Simmons slipped on the dugout steps, injuring his ankle. He tried to play in the first few innings but was eventually pulled when it continued to bother him. The Angels have placed him on the DL after an MRI showed minor damage, but he is not expected to miss more than the minimum 10 days. Our algorithm is showing a 2 week Optimal Recovery Time. So for now he comes with a High Injury Risk, but that should improve pretty quickly.

Drew Pomeranz SP, Red Sox: biceps strain

The Red Sox placed Drew Pomeranz on the DL after leaving his last start with another arm injury. This time it’s a biceps strain, but he missed the start of the season after a Spring Training flexor strain. Our algorithm already showed that his Injury Risk was High due to his past injuries, but now it is even higher. Don’t be surprised if he misses more than a few weeks. It’s always concerning when a pitcher suffers multiple injuries to their throwing arm.

Byron Buxton OF, Twins: big toe fracture

In April, Buxton fractured his left big toe and landed on the DL. We said he needed 7 weeks for the fracture to heal, but he only missed three weeks. Buxton clearly returned too soon and wasn’t anywhere near 100%. It showed in his numbers as he is hitting just .156 this year. Now he is back on the DL and should be sidelined for at least a month to allow his toe to fully heal. With a Poor HPF (Health Performance Factor), it’s no surprise that his play suffered due to the injury. His Injury Risk is also High right now, so if he returned when first eligible his risk of another injury would be very high.

Chris Archer SP, Rays: left abdominal strain

Archer experienced tightness in his core during his last start and has been placed on the DL with a left abdominal strain. We are showing that he needs to be shut down for at least two weeks for it to heal. Initially his injury was described as groin tightness, but scans showed the abdominal strain. This is a tricky injury for a pitcher, so don’t be surprised if this one leads to a lengthy absence.

Clayton Kershaw SP, Dodgers: lower back strain

In his first start since being activated from the DL for biceps tendinitis, Kershaw injured his back and was forced to leave early. Scans showed a lower back strain, the same injury he battled multiple times in the past. This is the fourth time in five seasons that a back injury has landed him on the DL. Before the season we warned his Fantasy owners that this would be a recurring problem, and sure enough he is looking at another extended absence. The Dodgers’ expect him to miss at least a month, but by the time he starts throwing again then goes on a rehab assignment it will likely be much longer.

Shohei Ohtani SP, Angels: recurring blister

Ohtani left his start on Wednesday with a recurring blister on his right middle finger. He was seen blowing on his hand throughout the night and was eventually pulled while warming up before the fifth inning. Last time he left with a blister he didn’t miss his next start. Now he definitely should to allow time for it to heal. By hitting he can also make it worse, but at least he can have it taped up to protect it. A trip to the DL wouldn’t be the worst thing.
