Understanding How to Use Our MLB Injury Report

Baseball isn’t on the same level as basketball and football when it comes to contact sports, but that doesn’t mean players don’t get hurt. There’s a lot more injuries than people think and many can go completely overlooked.

It’s easy to stay up to date with the star players and when they go on the DL. The thing is, any injury can have a negative impact on a team. Especially if a club starts to get a bunch of injuries all at once.

I’ve displayed a full injury report for all 30 MLB teams above. As I’m sure most of you noticed, teams are listed in alphabetical order.

As you can see, I don’t just list the player who is out. I’ve got the day they were placed on the injury report, position they play, type of injury, impact they have on that team and their current status.

Once a player has returned from injury, we don’t automatically remove them from the list. Their status will switch to healthy. This allows you to see if a team recently got a lot of guys back.

By scrolling through the teams, you can get a pretty good idea of which clubs are dealing with the most injuries.

Tips for Handicapping Baseball Injuries: Impact of  Player Loss/Return

Injuries to starting pitchers is one thing that you don’t have to worry about all that much. At least when placing a bet on the game. You know what two starters are taking the mound. If one of them is scratched, your bet will be a wash (assuming you chose fixed for the starters).

What you need to be looking for is teams who have multiple starters out of the rotation because of injury. These teams are going to be forced to call up guys from the minors that likely aren’t ready for the big leagues.  You can sometimes find value in betting underdogs when the favorites are missing several key players.

Where pitching injuries really impact the game is when a team loses some key arms in the bullpen. Unless it’s one of the elite closers, most people will just overlook these guys being out. A healthy and well rested bullpen is huge when it comes to winning games. If a team is hit hard with injuries to their core set of relievers, it’s going to force the guys who are healthy to throw a little more and likely not pitch up to their potential.

Position players are also important to keep track of, but teams are usually more equipped to handle these. At least to a certain point. elite players like Mike Trout are simply not replaceable. The longer a key player like this is out, the more likely it is the team will struggle.
