Here's a running list of injury updates around the Major Leagues: – The Washington Nationals placed shortstop Ian Desmond on the 15-day Disabled List with a torn left oblique muscle according to Mark Zuckerman of CSNWashington.com. He adds that “injuries of this nature typically take at least a month, often two, to fully heal.” – The Chicago Cubs are optimistic that Matt Garza will be able to make his next start and avoid a DL stint according to Patrick Mooney of CSNChicago.com. Apparently the Cubs say that Garza's injury isn't related to last year's elbow injury. – According to Cardinals' GM, Joe Mozeliak, right hander Jaime Garcia will begin his rehab assignment in ten days or two weeks (via Andrew Wagaman of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch). Garcia began his throwing program earlier this week. – Left handed pitcher John Danks could be throwing off a mound soon according to Dan Hayes of CSNChicago.com. Hayes says that Danks “has responded well to recent activity and treatment,” but that he refuses to get too far.  “I feel like I'm able to bounce back a little better after I have thrown a couple of days in a row,” Danks said. “A few weeks ago I'd have been too sore to do anything really. I have been able to go out and do everything I've been asked so far. Hopefully it keeps on progressing the way we hope and want to. I'd like to get out there before the year is over.” – Third baseman Hanley Ramirez could miss the three game series the Marlins begin today against the Braves due to a hand infection reports Joe Capozzi of the Palm Beach Post. Manager Ozzie Guillen said it would be “very optimistic” to think that Ramirez could be available during the series. “The infection seems like it's pretty strong,” Guillen said. “I don't know how many days, if you want to call it day to day. To me, it's every two days.” Image by Keith Allison under the Creative Commons License Agreement.
