How to read the MLB Injury Report

The Major League Baseball season is often called a marathon since it has the longest regular season among the major professional sports, consisting of 162 games spread over six months. Players get hurt all the time and keeping an eye on the MLB Injury Report should be a key tool in your handicapping chest.

There are 30 teams in the MLB and the active roster for a game consists of 25 players and that number goes to 26 players. The MLB Injury Report is listed in alphabetical order by Team Name and Mascot

Ex. Arizona Diamondbacks, Atlanta Braves, Baltimore Orioles,

You may not see every team on the MLB Injury Report since some have been fortunate to avoid the injury bug but most clubs are listed throughout the season. Within each team section, Players are listed by first and last names before their Position. Along with the NFL, the MLB has the most positions in the sport and they’re each designated an abbreviation.

MLB Positions (Most Common)

  • 1B - First Base
  • 2B - Second Base
  • 3B - Third Base
  • SS - Shortstop
  • C - Catcher
  • LF - Left Field
  • CF - Center Field
  • RF - Right Field
  • Util - Utility
  • SP - Starting Pitcher
  • RP - Relief Pitcher
  • P - Pitcher

The Date section tells the bettor when a player became inactive on the MLB Injury Reports are always changing. The Injury section is usually stated with medical details and even though we’re not all doctors, savvy bettors following MLB can guesstimate the expected absence. If a player has a serious injury that will force the individual to miss a lengthy amount of games, the team will put the player on the Disabled List or what’s commonly known as the DL on the MLB Injury Report. When a player is put on the DL, the team is allowed to fill that active roster spot with another team.

The MLB Injury Report provides plenty of information on each player in the Comments and they provide great insight on what happened to the player. Along with the injuries, the report covers league suspensions and MLB has more of these than any other professional league. The MLB Union has instituted strong drug testing policies for Performance Enhancing Drugs (PEDs) and players who fail face severe consequences. Also, the league does not tolerate domestic abuse issues and players have been suspended for those transgressions as well.

The Expected Return is when the MLB player is expected to return to the clubhouse or diamond for their team.

How do MLB Injury Reports affect betting?

The MLB Injury Reports often deal with long-term injuries but the short-term news certainly are more important for the day-to-day bettors. Staying on top of starters in the MLB Injury Reports can certainly help bettors get an edge on their bookmakers. Wagering on a team when an All-Star caliber player is removed from a lineup or perhaps a key pitcher is absent from bullpen can make a big difference on the performance on the field. Staying healthy for the marathon of the MLB season is crucial for all 30 teams and depth is key when dealing with 162 games.

Monitoring injuries can give you an edge when betting on baseball. If sports gambling is legal in your state, check out our online sportsbook directory to find the best and most secure places to make MLB bets, as well as exclusive sportsbook offers.
