Here's a running list of injury updates around the Major Leagues: – Jose Bautista's status remain “up in the air” according to Gregor Chishom of MLB.com. The outfielder, who hurt his wrist during a game on July 16, is still “experiencing some discomfort” and it is unknown when he'll return to the lineup. “When I swing the bat, it's some discomfort and the fact that that's there, the recommendations from the hand specialist were not to push it too hard, too soon,” Bautista said. “So that's what I'm doing, taking it one day at a time. There's no need to re-aggravate it, especially when I'm just hitting in the cage. “I'm still ahead of the suggested game plan, according to the hand specialist. Their recommendations were initially to not even attempt to pick up a bat for two weeks, and I'm at 16 days and I'm swinging in a cage with some liberty and somewhat of a free feel to my swing.” – According to Joe Frisaso of MLB.com, Giancarlo Stanto could be back with the team in less than a week. The Miami slugger had two cartilage chips removed from his right knee early in July. – Right handed pitcher Josh Beckett could miss his next start due to back spasms according to manager Bobby Valentine (via Joe McDonald of ESPNBoston). McDonald adds that Beckett is questionable to throw a bullpen session today, and the team has yet to make a decision whether he'll go to the Disabled List. – Cardinals' Yadier Molina missed yesterday's game due to a sprained thumb, and according to Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post, the catcher will have an x-ray taken today in St. Louis.
