Prominent Players Open MLB Season on DL PDF Print E-mail

Injuries
Written by Matthew Coller   
Sunday, 04 April 2010 21:01

 

The Red Sox had it last season.  The ’08 Yankees were sick as a dog.  Remember the 2007 Cardinals?  They could barely get out of bed.  These teams came down with the injury bug.  Not just the usual bump and bruise, not just a tight hammy here or dead arm there, but the rampant spreading of what could only be described as collective bad luck.

As of Opening Day, nobody officially has the bug, but several teams will be missing key players to start the season.  Here are some of the most important players starting the season on the DL:

RP Angel Guzman (Chicago Cubs) – Guzman underwent arthroscopic surgery in March to repair a “career threatening” injury to his right shoulder.   In 2009, Guzman was the only consistent Cubs reliever sporting a 2.95 ERA in 55 games.

SP Ted Lilly (Chicago Cubs) - Lilly, likely the team's third starter, was put on the DL Sunday retroactive March 26.  Lilly has made several minor league appearances and has looked good.  Manager Lou Pinella said he felt "wonderful."  Return is likely when he becomes eligible.

3B Freddy Sanchez (San Francisco Giants) – After signing a two-year, $12 million extension in the off-season, Sanchez will start the year on the 15-day DL.  The infielder surprised the Giants when he had surgery in January to get rid of discomfort in his shoulder.

2B Ian Kinsler (Texas Rangers) -  Kinsler sustained a high ankle sprain March 12 and will not be ready for the opening of the season.  Kinsler, who was put on the DL retroactive March 26 will be available April 10.

1B Russell Branyan (Cleveland Indians) – After signing a one-year, $2 million contract in the off-season, Branyan will start the year on the DL due to a herniated disc in his back.  Branyan hit 31 home runs last season for the Seattle Mariners.  The primary first baseman is likely to start the year on rehab in triple-A Columbus.

SP Daisuke Matsuzaka (Boston Red Sox) - The Sox announced Sunday that Matsuzaka will start April 10 for triple-A Pawtucket.  The Boston pitcher has struggled with back and neck problems that put him behind in spring training.

SP Cliff Lee (Seattle Mariners) – The new Mariners starter said he “felt good” after throwing Sunday.   He has been shut down since March 15 with a strained abdominal muscle.  Lee suffered the injury after being run over by Dimondbacks’ catcher Chris Snyder.  The timetable on Lee’s return is still unclear, but the team says he may be ahead of schedule.

SS Jose Reyes (New York Mets) – Reyes, who missed 126 games during the 2009 season, starts where he left off: on the DL.  He missed most of spring training with thyroid issues.  Reyes did take 10 minor league at bats and says “everything is good.”  The Mets have not announced when Reyes will return.

CF Carlos Beltran (New York Mets) - Beltran was another player who surprised his team with off-season surgery.  He is reported to be seeing action soon.  As for now, Gary Matthews Jr. will start in center for the Mets.

RP J.P. Howell (Tampa Bay Rays) – The Rays have not yet revealed their timetable on their closer J.P. Howell.  It appears they are taking precautions as he has struggled with soreness in his shoulder.  Rotoworld suggested Howell may return in early May.

RP Kerry Wood (Cleveland Indians) – Saying Kerry Wood is on the DL is like saying Babe Ruth hit home runs.  Wood strained a muscle in his back and will be on the DL retroactive March 26.  Chris Perez will take over as closer while Wood is out.

SP - Gil Meche(Kansas City Royals)  – The Royals starter was put on the DL retroactive March 26 with right shoulder bursitis.  He’s already thrown several times and is tentatively scheduled to start the sixth game of the regular season for the Royals.

SP Scott Kazmir (Anaheim Angels) – The Angels placed Kazmir on the DL as a precaution.  He threw 71 pitches against the Brewers in an exhibition game.

SP Jeff Francis (Colorado Rockies) – The left-hander missed 2009 with surgery to repair a torn labrum.  Apparently it isn’t healed yet because Francis says “It’s hurting pretty bad.”  He was scheduled to start the second game of the season, but will miss at least the first couple of weeks.

RP Houston Street (Colorado Rockies) - USA Today reported that the Rockies’ closer had a setback in his attempt to overcome right shoulder stiffness.  He was shut down for the third time during the spring earlier this week.  Left-hander Franklin Morales will take over as Rockies closer.

CL Brad Lidge (Philadelphia Phillies) – The Phlis’ closer struggled last season with injuries, seeing his numbers suffer as well.  Lidge threw a bullpen session Sunday.  The Phillies said Lidge had “No pain.  No issues.”  Lidge had surgery on the inner half of his elbow after the World Series last season.  The closer will make rehab appearances in early April and will likely join the team later in the month.

1B Lance Berkman (Houston Astros) - Berkman, who has suffered from knee injuries and recovering from arthroscopic surgery, said he is unsure about whether he'll be able to return when he is eligible on April 10.  His recovery period was originally estimated to between two and four weeks.

Hoffman on his Way to the DL PDF Print E-mail
Injuries

Monday, 30 March 2009 13:52

Trevor HoffmanMilwaukee Brewers closer Trevor Hoffman went on the DL on Monday, retroactive to March 27, according to MLB.com.  Hoffman has been dealing with a strained right oblique muscle near his rib cage for the past couple of weeks. It looks like he will miss at least the team’s first four regular season games.  

According to Hoffman, he is seeing progress, but feels there is no need to rush back and provide a risk of a greater set back later on in the season. "Two weeks in the middle of the season is going to feel a heck of a lot longer than the last two weeks of Spring Training, even though this has been frustrating. It would be difficult to watch games go by," says Hoffman.

Sunday, 29 March 2009 14:18

Injury ReportThe Detroit Tigers have placed pitchers Dontrelle Willis and Joel Zumaya on the 15-day disabled list. Zumaya’s placement on the DL is retroactive to March 27, according to the AP. A sore right shoulder is the cause of him being placed on the DL.

Willis has been placed on the DL due to due to an anxiety disorder. According to Willis, the diagnosis came from follow-up blood tests taken a couple weeks ago that revealed a reason of concern to the Tigers medical staff. 

MLB.com reported that Willis had said that doctors told him that this was easily treated. “It's unfortunate, but I'm just more concerned about my health. Don't get me wrong, I wish the best for this ballclub, and I love the game of baseball, and I want to be around for a long time. But you have to be honest with yourself. If your health's not right, you have to take care of it yourself," Willis said. “"I'm not crazy. My teammates might think I'm crazy, but this is not something like that. This is something totally different that I'm concerned about. This is something in my blood."

Injury ReportAngles ace John Lackey is not likely to make his Opening Day start. He has currently been shut down due to tightness and inflammation in his right forearm. According to MLB.com, Lackey experienced the tightness during a 90-pitch outing on Sunday against the Royals. It was also reported that he was a little tight after playing catch on Thursday and this was what made the team decide to shut him down for the time being. The team’s Orthopedist is supposed to be at camp n Saturday to examine Lackey’s MRI results.

 

The Oakland A’s will begin season without ace Justin Duchscherer. He started his first game of the in a minor league game and was scheduled to throw 35-40 pitches, according to the AP. This was cut short due to elbow pain that he has experienced this spring. He says his arm still is not right. He will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his right elbow to exlpore and find the problem. This will place him on the DL for the beginning of the season and sideline him until at least the middle of May.

 

Tigers relief pitcher Joel Zumaya will likely not begin the season in Detroit.  Zumaya has only pitched in one game so far this spring, but felt soreness after his one appearance on March 2nd. Zumaya was in the running for the closer job this year, but he is once again being slowed down by injuries, as he has in the past.

Rays' Upton May Miss Start of Season PDF Print E-mail
Injuries

Sunday, 22 March 2009 22:41

BJ UptonTampa Bay Rays outfielder B.J. Upton may not be ready by Opening Day. Upton underwent surgery on his left shoulder during the offseason to repair a torn labrum. It has been questionable throughout this spring whether Upton would be ready by Opening Day or not. In a minor league spring training game on Saturday, the question was basically answered. Upton was hit in the hand by a pitch during the game. It is not considered to be serious, but it will cause him to miss a couple days and will more than likely push him back enough to cause him to miss the first week of the regular season.

Upton could probably play by Opening Day if he had to but the Rays have made it clear that he is not playing until he is completely 100% ready. According to the Associated Press, “Rays executive vice president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman said he's not ready to declare Upton will not be ready for opening day. Nevertheless, he stressed the Rays have no intentions of playing the center fielder until he's ‘100 percent’ healthy.”

Injury ReportHanley Sits Again

Florida Marlins shortstop Hanley Ramirez missed his second straight game on Wednesday. He has felt some discomfort in his right shoulder. He told manager Freddy Gonzalez that he could not play a few minutes before the team bus left for the game on Wednesday. He sit out the team’s game on Monday due to his shoulder and everyone was hoping with the off day on Tuesday he would be ready for Wednesday.

Hoffman Has Strained Muscle

Brewers relief pitcher Trevor Hoffman has been sidelined due to a strained right muscle on his right side. He has already missed one outing this spring. Hoffman felt it the day after pitching on March 13 against Kansas City, according to the Associated Press.  "The way Trevor told me, he didn't feel anything after his inning. He didn't feel anything on the bench. But driving in the next morning, he felt something," manager Ken Macha told an AP reporter.

Injury ReportManny Aggravates Hamstring

Dodger outfielder Manny Ramirez was brought out of the team’s game on Sunday due to re-aggravating his left hamstring in left field. This was the first game he has played in the outfield this spring. Manny was held out of Thursday’s game due to tightness in his hamstring, but he did play the team’s next game as a DH. According to MLB.com, Manny felt his hamstring tighten up while trying to cut off a double down the left-field line.

 

Abdominal Strain for Pedroia

Dustin Pedroia of the Boston Red Sox had first thought he had strained his left oblique, but after visiting Dr. Thomas Gill, Red Sox Director of Medical Staff, the diagnosis was a left strained abdominal muscle. Pedroia is not worried at all about missing any significant time that may cause him to miss opening day. He told MLB.com, "[There's] nothing to be worried about. I'll just take a couple days and try to get it calmed down, and then move on from there. I'm not worried about it."

 

Lugo to Have Knee Scoped

Julio Lugo of the Boston Red Sox will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his right knee. He was taken out of the team’s game Friday night and then sent for an MRI, according to the AP. They are going to do the procedure to go in there and see what is wrong. Depending on what they find will determine the length of time that Lugo is out. According to the AP, if there is a meniscus injury, it could sideline him for three to four weeks.

 

Chipper Aggravates Oblique

For the second time in a week, Chipper Jones has aggravated his right oblique muscle. He was scratched from Team USA’s game Sunday against The Netherlands. He has gone back to Orlando to get evaluated by Atlanta Braves team doctors. He re-aggravated the oblique during batting practice on Sunday and felt discomfort when having to reach for pitches. His main concern now is being healthy for Opening Day.

Manny Misses Spring Debut PDF Print E-mail

Thursday, 12 March 2009 18:54

Injury ReportManny Ramirez was scheduled to make his spring debut on Thursday for the Dodgers. He was scratched from his start an hour before the game.  He felt tightness in his left hamstring while doing baserunning drills Thursday morning. He does not think it’s serious and expects to be on the field soon, maybe even tomorrow. Manny told MLB.com reporters, "I was going second to home and it just felt kind of tight," he said. "I only felt it today. It wasn't that bad, just a little tight. I'll give it a try tomorrow."  

Manny told manager Joe Torre that he could play today. Torre was the one who decided to scratch him just to give him one extra day to get the soreness out. It is expected that it is tight and sore from the running and conditioning that he has been doing to try and catch up with the rest of the team where he had missed three weeks of Spring Training.

Rays Rising Youngster Out Three Months PDF Print E-mail
Injuries
Written by Kyle Deering   
Thursday, 12 March 2009 13:21

Injury ReportTampa Bay Rays outfielder, Fernando Perez, dislocated his left wrist diving after a ball during the team’s Tuesday spring training game against the Blue Jays.  According to MLB.com, Perez was using a bigger glove and had not gotten used to it yet. Perez was quoted as saying, “The whole trick to it is making sure you keep your glove from catching on the ground. My glove has never caught on the ground [before], then that. I'm using a little bit longer of a glove than I have been using, and it got caught under there. So it really surprised me."

 

His wrist being dislocated will cause him to be out longer than he would have if he had broken it. If he had broken it, he would be back in a month, according to Perez. Where as with the dislocation, he says he will be out about three months because of the different parties that are involved.

 

Manager Joe Maddon said that the absence of Perez will be mainly felt at the beginning of the season with uncertainty of B.J. Upton’s health with him recovering from left shoulder surgery. Perez is considered a bright young player for the Rays and really an up and coming player with some upside, according to Maddon.
