Naquin (calf) will resume baseball activities in about two weeks, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports. An MRI on Naquin's strained left calf revealed some swelling behind his knee, so the outfielder will be shut down for a couple of weeks before being cleared to begin rehabbing. This new timeline means Naquin won't be ready to rejoin the Indians until sometime in June at the earliest. Oscar Mercado and Jordan Luplow are candidates to see time in the outfield in his absence.
Naquin will undergo an MRI on his strained left calf, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports. Naquin landed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday. It doesn't sound as though the Indians are particularly concerned about this being a long-term issue, but more details could emerge following the test.
Naquin was placed on the 10-day injured list with a left calf strain Tuesday. Outfield prospect Oscar Mercado was called up to take Naquin's place on the roster. If Mercado impresses, there's a chance Naquin doesn't have a regular role to come back to once he's healthy, as his modest .278/.316/.378 slash line is only good for an 81 wRC+.
Naquin (calf) will likely be placed on the 10-day injured list, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports. Naquin has been out since Saturday with a calf injury, and with the Indians facing a left-handed pitcher Tuesday before Wednesday's off day, it sounds like the team is leaning towards briefly sending the outfielder to the injured list. Oscar Mercado is reportedly expected to join the Indians in place of Naquin.
Naquin (calf) remains out of the lineup Sunday against the White Sox, Zack Meisel of The Athletic reports. Naquin was scratched from Saturday's lineup and sat Sunday as well. He'll remain out for at least one more, with Jordan Luplow again starting in right field.
