Here's a running list of injury updates around the Major Leagues: – Giants closer Brian Wilson will require Tommy John surgery and will miss the reminder of the 2012 season according to Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle. He adds that Wilson looks at this surgery as “an opportunity to get a better arm and throw harder.” – Skip Schumaker could be back with the Cardinals this week according to Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post. The outfielder, who suffered a strained oblique during a Spring Training game, began his rehab assignment yesterday at Memphis adds Goold. – According to Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine, outfielder Carl Crawford will probably play his first Spring Training game tomorrow (via Brian MacPherson of the Providence Journal). Crawford suffered a setback while recovering from a wrist surgery, but he's been taking a lot of batting practice lately according to Valentine. – Twins General Manager, Terry Ryan, hopes that Nick Blackburn will be able to make his next start after his MRI came back “looking normal” reports Joe Christensen of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune. “All indications are that he's going to be OK, but we're certainly going to be cautious,” Ryan said. Blackburn was pulled out in the sixth inning of his Saturday's start with shoulder stiffness, but according to Christensen, the team believes the stiffness was caused by a cramp.
