Fantasy Baseball Injury Reports for Hitters - Updates On Pete Alonso, Yordan Alvarez, Alec Bohm, Eloy Jimenez

Pete Alonso - Fantasy Baseball Rankings, Draft Sleepers, MLB Injury News

As we head toward the weekend, the injury bug continues to bother several potent fantasy baseball names around Major League Baseball. While some of these injuries aren't too concerning for fantasy managers, other players could be heading toward the injured list.

These are some of the latest fantasy baseball injury updates for hitters as of June 9, 2023. We'll be covering all positions throughout the week, so stay tuned. Some players on this list impact fantasy baseball more than others.

Pete Alonso

New York Mets first baseman Pete Alonso (wrist) returned home for further testing on Thursday. After taking a pitch to the left wrist, the slugger exited Wednesday's game versus the Braves. He had a CT scan in Atlanta on Thursday morning. However, skipper Buck Showalter said Alonso returned to New York to "have our people look at it."

At any rate, Showalter's comment doesn't sit well with fantasy managers, who were originally expecting Alonso to miss a few games. But now it appears things could be much worse, which isn't ideal, considering the 28-year-old has 22 home runs and 49 RBI in 2023.


Yordan Alvarez

Houston Astros outfielder/designated hitter Yordan Alvarez (oblique) exited Thursday's game against Toronto. The slugger lasted one at-bat before his night ended abruptly because of right oblique discomfort.

Considering Alvarez is hitting .274 with 55 RBI and 17 home runs this season, the Astros won't take any chances. Unfortunately, that means he'll surely miss time, with a trip to the injured list a possibility. At any rate, an official update should come soon.


Eloy Jimenez

Chicago White Sox outfielder Eloy Jimenez (undisclosed) was moving slowly after hitting a ground ball to shortstop on Thursday against the New York Yankees in the second game of a doubleheader that seemed like a surefire double play. Jimenez was grimacing after making it to first base and then was pulled from the game for a pinch-runner with what appeared to be some sort of leg injury.

The White Sox should provide an update on Jimenez soon, but this could be something that sends the oft-injured outfielder to the injured list. The good news is he went 1-for-4 with his sixth home run of the year, two RBI, a run scored, a walk and two strikeouts in the game before departing. For now, consider the 26-year-old as day-to-day. Jimenez entered the day hitting .258 (33-for-128) with six doubles, five homers and 22 RBI in 33 games played.


Kevin Kiermaier

Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Kevin Kiermaier (wrist) was removed from Thursday's meeting with the Astros after getting hit by a pitch in the second inning. Fortunately, X-rays were negative, and he was diagnosed with a left wrist contusion.

The 33-year-old, who sat out a few games recently because of a back issue, will likely miss more time. However, depending on the severity of the injury, a trip to the injury list could be on the horizon. Kiermaier is hitting .296 with 16 RBI and four home runs this season, so fantasy managers are certainly hoping that's not the case.


Alec Bohm

Philadelphia Phillies third baseman Alec Bohm (hamstring) is on track to return from the 10-day injured list this Saturday after he had a strenuous workout on the field on Thursday. Bohm is dealing with a mild left-hamstring strain and should be back for the Phillies and fantasy managers this weekend during a series against the visiting Los Angeles Dodgers.

With Rhys Hoskins (knee) out for the year and Darick Hall (thumb) recovering from a torn thumb ligament, Bohm has been splitting time between third and first base in 2023. He'll be returning to an everyday role in Philly and a .265/.321/.403 slash line with a .724 OPS, nine doubles, six home runs, 37 RBI and 23 runs scored in 53 games. Bohm should be rostered in all but the shallowest of mixed leagues.


Yandy Diaz

Tampa Bay Rays infielder Yandy Diaz (hip) will miss another game on Thursday against the Minnesota Twins because he's being bothered by his left hip. However, he'll be available off the bench on Thursday and expects to return to the starting lineup on Friday against the Texas Rangers. The 31-year-old is missing his second straight game because of the hip injury, but he should be available again to fantasy managers this weekend against Texas.

Luke Raley is getting the nod at first base on Thursday and is batting cleanup against Twins right-hander Bailey Ober. Diaz has been a must-start in all fantasy leagues this year when he's been in the lineups, as he's hitting an impressive .316 (62-for-196) with 13 doubles, 12 home runs, 34 RBI and 41 runs scored in 52 games. He's only two homers away from tying his career-high of 14 homers set in 2019.
