MLB Injury Information

The MLB injury report is arguably the most detailed injured list in all of sports. With several different injury designations, teams can provide a hyper-specific frame of reference as to the status of injured players. Whether a player will be out for a short period of time, extended period of time, or an undetermined length of time, the MLB injured list is great for letting bettors know where players stand.

Formerly known as the disabled list, the injured list runs down the latest news on MLB injuries for each team. There are several tiers of injured list that players can be put on, depending on the severity of their injuries. There are short-term versions of the injured list, such as the 10-day and 30-day lists. Players who are likely to miss more time are put on the 45-day or 60-day IL. And players who are set to miss longer periods of time due to things like Tommy John surgery are able to go on a season-ending injured list.

The main positive about the tiered injury list system that Major League Baseball uses is the fact that bettors can determine the betting and fantasy impact of each injury long-term. This is especially useful when betting on futures in MLB. A team whose key players are set to miss longer periods of time due to injury would be less attractive in the futures market than a team that has all of their key pieces in place.

But it is important to understand the impact of players on the injured list to their teams more than it is to just know how long players are set to be out. This is especially true when it comes to the pitching staff. A starting pitcher who misses 30 days on the injured list is likely to miss somewhere in the neighborhood of five or six starts. Compared to a relief pitcher or a position player, that is not a lot of time to miss.

Understanding how depth for position players is situated on each team is another key to using an injury report to your advantage. Some teams can reconfigure their lineups by moving a designated hitter into the field to mitigate the impact of an injured player. Others do not have that kind of depth. Evaluating those situations can be the difference between wins and losses at the betting window in Major League Baseball.

In the MLB playoffs, injuries do not hurt as tangibly, as teams have larger rosters to pull reserves from than they do during the regular season. But no matter when an injury happens, knowing how severe it is and evaluating how it impacts the team afflicted is the best way to make optimal use of the MLB injury report.
