The most devastating injury news out of baseball, came out of St. Louis. Adam Wainwright is done for the season, after suffering a torn left Achilles. He will be out for 9-12 months, so this will linger into 2016. This makes Jaime Garcia getting healthy an important priority. He is throwing simulated games, and will begin to throw rehab games within a week or two. Jason Heyward is day-to-day with a groin issue, he should be out of the lineup for a few games, if that much.


Injured: Jacob Lamb

Injured: Kenley Jansen, Yasiel Puig, Hyun-Jin Ryu, Brandon McCarthy, Joel Peralta

The closer situation in L.A. has been a mess, and while Joel Peralta was the guy, he hits the 15 day DL with arm soreness. Kenley Jansen is close to making a rehab assignment, as long as he doesn’t have a setback in bullpen sessions. We could see him by the end of May. Hamstring injuries are tricky, and Yasiel Puig pushed it before getting 100%, he will serve on the 15 day DL until he is fully healthy. It is just a strain, nothing serious. Hyun-Jin Ryu threw bullpen sessions this week, and was reported to look great. Don Mattingly said he needs to get stronger, so he could still be two weeks at the least away. Brandon McCarthy is out for the year with a torn UCL.


Injured: Matt Cain, Hunter Pence, Jake Peavy

The Giants need an offensive lift, and Hunter Pence is close to return. He was taking swings off a tee, and there are talks of him making a rehab assignment later this week. It will still be some time before the Giants get Matt Cain back, he is barely playing catch, and the Giants need him to make rehab starts. Jake Peavy is in the same boat, barely playing catch, although his issue is not due to throwing, it is a strained lower back.

Christian Yelich had an MRI, which revealed a bulging disc in his back, he is optimistic he will return in the first week of May. This was an issue last season, but this year he says it is not as bad. Something to keep an eye on. Jose Fernandez is ready to throw against hitters, this is a huge step for him. He had a small bullpen session, and is on pace to return sometime in June.
