Three major leaguers took to the Disabled List. David Price of the Boston Red Sox, George Springer of the Houston Astros, and Martin Prado of the Miami Marlins are going to see time due to injuries. The three injuries impact two teams that are leading their respective divisions, while the later impacts the Marlins with their intentions to sell at the trade deadline.

Price has elbow ailment

The Red Sox expect Price to pitch again this season, but they are unsure when that will happen. The move for Price to go to the disabled list was retroactive on Tuesday, which means the soonest Price can pitch is August 4 against the Chicago White Sox.

The Red Sox could make a move to acquire a starter as the deadline looms.

The Red Sox do not have any top prospects to make a run at Yu Darvish or Sonny Gray. The team used up all of their top prospects in trades for Chris Sale, Drew Pomeranz, and Craig Kimbrel. However, the team could make a run at Lance Lynn from the St. Louis Cardinals.

Springer has injured quad

Springer has discomfort in his quadriceps. The move was to the 10 day disabled list. The move was retroactive to Tuesday. With the move to the disabled list, the Astros activated Dallas Keuchel and Will Harris. Springer was hitting .310 this season, and has 27 home runs on the season.

With the move to the disabled list, Norichika Aoki will play more in the outfield.

This is the second major injury the Astros are facing. Carlos Correa recently made news as he is to miss 6-8 weeks with an injury. The Astros have been in search for a starting pitcher at the deadline. The injury to Springer should not change that course as he is to come back in ten days. The Astros have a 17 game lead in their division, so they are not likely to panic.

Prado has knee surgery

The Marlins third baseman was placed on the disabled list with a knee sprain. Prado was hitting .250 this season in 37 games. He has dealt with a hamstring injury this season as well. Prado has been on the disabled list since July 18, but could miss the next month, or rest of the season.

The news hurts the team in their conquest to sell to acquire prospects. Prado was once named a potential trade chip for the team. The Marlins have been reported to put Marcell Ozuna, and Christian Yelich on the block as well. However, the team's intent to sell the team has stalled rumors. Prado is in his first year of a three-year, $40 million contract he signed during this past offseason.
