Mauer's Progress Is Worrying Twins PDF Print E-mail
Injuries
Written by Kyle Deering   
Wednesday, 11 March 2009 17:17

Injury ReportMinnesota Twins catcher Joe Mauer is recovering from off season surgery to remove a kidney obstruction. His progress during rehab had been slower than what the team thought it should be, and he was having trouble doing some things that the Twins medical staff thought he should be doing easier and without pain.

Needless to say, the Twins organization was getting worried. They set up an MRI for Tuesday to make sure that there were no additional problems.  According to the Associated Press, the results were the same as before which is inflammation in the lower back. He will start taking a stronger dosage of medicine to try to reduce the inflammation quicker and speed up the recovery process.

He has been able to throw, catch, and hit without pain. What causes him pain and discomfort is running. They are hoping the stronger dosage of medicine well help get him on the field full time before the end of the spring.

Chipper May Miss Remainder of the Classic PDF Print E-mail

Chipper Jones

UPDATE (3/9 9:20PM ET): CHIPPER MAY BE BACK SOONER RATHER THAN LATER

Chipper Jones says he will be ready to play this weekend when Team USA advances to the second round of the WBC. Manager Davey Johnson first thought he would be out a couple weeks, so it was a pleasant surprise to him when he heard the news. Chipper has had a mild oblique strain numerous of other times and says a mild strain always takes a couple days of rest to get over rather than weeks.

Team USA third baseman Chipper Jones strained his right external oblique muscle in the sixth inning of Sunday's contest against Venezuela. This is an injury that Chipper is very familiar with. Chipper told MLB.com , "I got a good pitch to hit and tried to come out of my shoes to hit it," said Jones. "And I'm a switch-hitter, it's something that's happened to me dozens of times."

Chipper is being optimistic and thinking he may be able to return to action for Team USA in a couple of days. However, manager Davey Johnson is not thinking so positive. "I think anytime somebody has a little strain in the spring, you have to be real cautious," Johnson said. "I doubt if he'd be available for a week or two."

Santana May Begin Season on DL PDF Print E-mail
Injuries
Written by Kyle Deering   
Sunday, 08 March 2009 19:45

Injury ReportThis time it is Ervin Santana of the Angels instead of Johan Santana that is going to rest his sore elbow. According to MLB.com, an MRI revealed that a sprained medial collateral ligament is the cause of the discomfort. He has been shut down for now in hopes of it heeling on its own. However, this will likely set him back enough to cause him to open the regular season the DL.

The medial collateral ligament is the ligament involved in the well known "Tommy John Surgery." This is what the Angels do not want. Santana was even quoted as saying, "I thought it could be worse. I thought maybe I'd need surgery. I'll start playing catch next week." It was a relief to Santana knowing that it was sprained and not torn. When you tear this ligament is when "Tommy John Surgery" is required which usually causes a pitcher to be out a minimum of a year before they are back 100%.

Doctors refer to the "Tommy John Surgery" as a ulnar collateral ligament reconstruction. The ulnar collateral ligament is also known as the medial collateral ligament. You can find out more about this surgery in pitchers by reading Maury Brown's article, "Elbow Ligament Reconstruction Appears Not to Affect Future Pro Advancement in Baseball," in the "Injury Reports" section.

A-Rod to Have Surgery PDF Print E-mail
Injuries

Sunday, 08 March 2009 12:59

A-RodAlex Rodriguez will undergo arthroscopic hip surgery to repair a torn labrum. This procedure will keep him out 6-9 weeks, and it will only fix it temporarily. He will have to have an additional more extent surgery at the end of the year to permanently fix the tear.

The reason for the arthroscopic surgery now is to get A-Rod back playing the majority of the regular season where the more serious surgery would have put him out 3 to 4 months. According to the AP, general manager Brian Cashman explains it like this, "The surgery that will just repair the labrum tear right now would shorten his rehab. Then following the conclusion of the season going in and repair the remaining aspects that need to be repaired."

The likely replacement for A-Rod while he is out will be Cody Ransom. He is a 33-year old third-baseman who has had only 183 at bats in his six year major league career.

Injury ReportNew York Mets starting pitcher Mike Pelfrey found out on Friday that he had a muscle strain in his left lower leg. Pelfrey and the Mets are unsure what caused the injury. It swelled up and turned colors without them knowing why. According to MLB.com, "Pelfrey said he was unsure of the cause of the problem, as he didn't participate in morning drills. The club said he had strained the muscle while throwing in the bullpen Friday, but Pelfrey had no recollection of a misstep or an incident."

It is not certain yet when Pelfrey will continue baseball activities. MLB.com says he will begin his spring preparation again when the pain is gone. This is the second medical issue the Mets have dealt with the past week, with the first one being Johan Santana. The Mets first thought they would be without Santana for their opener, but it is looking more promising everyday that the club's Ace will get the nod on Opening Day.

A-Rod to Have Surgery and Could Be Out Until May PDF Print E-mail

Injury Report

UPDATE (3/5 11:00PM ET): A-ROD MAY NOT HAVE SURGERY AFTER ALL

MLB.com reported on Thursday night that A-Rod will not have surgery just yet. However, the hip injury is more serious than first thought. Not only does he have a cyst on his hip but he also has a torn labrum in his right hip. The surgery to repair this would keep him out for 4 months. The Yankees are going to try to treat the injury to delay the surgery until after the season. "I think we're collectively trying to figure out what's best to do for everybody involved," GM Brian Cashman said. "If surgery is what has to happen, that's what you have to do. If surgery is not something that has to happen at this point in time, then it's something that's manageable. We're all trying to be open-minded."

Some of the Yankee players were surprised when they heard the news of A-Rod's injury. They did not know anything was wrong with him. They said you could not tell it by watching him play during the team's spring games so far. "We saw it on the news when we were eating lunch," first baseman Mark Teixeira told MLB.com. "I think he's been swinging the bat great, looking great in Spring Training. We didn't really know anything was going on."

 

It has been reported on the Sporting News and MLB websites that Alex Rodriguez will be required to have surgery to remove the cyst that has formed on his hip. This procedure requires a 10 week rehabilitation stint which would put A-Rod missing the WBC and the first month of the regular season. All of this; however, is according to A-Rod's brother, Joe. Neither the Yankees nor WBC officials could confirm any of this information according to Sporting News. The Yankees said they would not give any information out yet. Joe Girardi spoke to MLB.com reporters regarding A-Rod's brother's comments and had this to say, "I do not have that information -- I have not heard that yet."

Injury Updates: Will Santana or Duchscherer Start on Opening Day? PDF Print E-mail
Injuries
Written by Kyle Deering   
Wednesday, 04 March 2009 21:05

Injury ReportJohan Santana is hoping to start on Opening Day against the Reds. He threw his best feeling bullpen of the spring on Wednesday. His schedule has him starting his first spring game on March 18. This would leave less than three weeks until Opening Day. On a normal, spring schedule it would be more time in between a players first sprng start and his first regular season start. It is still up in the air whether Santana will start Opening Day or not, but here is what manager Jerry Manuel had to say about the situation, "Johan knows Johan, and he assures me that he'll be ready for Opening Day. So I have to agree with that. I don't see any reason why there should be any different plans than that. Not this first week in March when he just lit your eyes up on the sideline. You have templates that you like to follow. Everybody don't fit those templates. That's why he is who he is. They don't fit him." He was quoted on MLB.com; you can read the entire article by clicking the previous link.

Things may not be looking as promising for Justin Duchscherer for starting the A's opener. He has been told to not throw for at least a week. This puts a damper on the possibility of him starting on Opening Day. This also increases the possibility of him beginning the regular season on the disabled list, according to MLB.com. His MRI did not show any major problems, but he said the pain he is experiencing in his elbow is not unlike the tendonitis that caused him to miss 42 games in 2006. A more detailed description of Duchscherer's injury along with others can be found in the "Injury Reports."

Injury ReportA-Rod to Visit Specialist

The man who has seen the most headlines over the course of the past month is in them once again. Only this time it is for something different. A press release that was made public on Tuesday night revealed that New York Yankee third-basemen Alex Rodriguez is to see a hip specialist in Colorado on Wednesday. A-Rod has had some tightness in his right hip over the course of the spring. On Saturday, he visited Dr. Chris Ahmad, the team’s doctor, and also received a MRI on his right hip. The MRI revealed a cyst in his sore right hip. After knowing this, Dr. Ahmad decided that Rodriguez should visit a hip specialist.

New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman had this to say regarding the injury, “We felt it was in everyone's best interest-for the team and the player-to send Alex to Dr. Phillipon, who is regarded as the leading expert in his field. Alex has proven his durability throughout his career, and we will take every precaution and step necessary to ensure his health as we near the start of the 2009 regular season and beyond.”

A’s Ace to Be Examined

On Tuesday, Justin Duchscherer of the Oakland A’s had a scheduled visit to see a doctor regarding his sore right elbow. According to the Associated Press, the soreness started a couple weeks into Spring Training. It has caused Duchscherer to not see any action on the mound thus far in Spring Training games. He has been on a scheduled throwing program throughout the injury. According to manager Bob Geren, Duchscherer’s elbow has been tender, and they want to have it examined and maybe even a MRI just to be cautious and make sure. Duchscherer is a two-time All-Star and was slated to be the team’s Opening Day starter. He finished the 2008 campaign with a 2.54 ERA while compiling a 10-8 record.  

Milwaukee’s Newest Arm Out Again

Braden Looper of the Milwaukee Brewers will miss his second straight scheduled start due to a strained oblique muscle. This may cause Looper to not be ready by the opener on April 7th. Manager Ken Macha was quoted by the Associated Press as saying, “We may have to be prepared for getting somebody else ready.” The reason for this is because Macha also stated that Looper would not be throwing for the next 10-12 days. This is kind of an odd and unusual situation and injury because Looper said the first time he felt the pull in his side was after sneezing a few days ago.

Boston’s Injury Bug

The Boston Red Sox have experienced two minor injuries this week. Starting pitcher Brad Penny experienced some shoulder weakness that has caused him to cut his bullpen session short on Sunday and miss his first scheduled spring start. According to the Associated Press, manager Terry Francona does not consider this a setback. He said, “He could pitch Thursday. I just don't know it's in everybody's long-term best interests.”

J.D. Drew experienced back stiffness that caused him to miss most of the last month and a half of the 2008 season.  He flew back to Boston and had an injection on Monday, and he was back to camp on Tuesday. Terry Francona said that Drew has not hurt his back again, that the injection was only for precautionary reasons.

Joe Nathan Drops Out of WBC PDF Print E-mail

Injury Report

 UPDATE (3/2 12:35PM ET): HAWKINS TO REPLACE NATHAN

Latroy Hawkins will take the roster spot of Joe Nathan on Team USA. Nathan Dropped out of the Classic because of soreness in his right shoulder. Hawkins was contacted by Team USA's pitching coach, Marcel Lachemann, on Sunday night about joining the team. Hawkins was reluctant at first but after consulting some family and friends, he decided to join the team for the Classic, according to MLB.com. Also, B.J. Ryan will not playing in the WBC as originally thought because of mechanical problems that he wants to fix during spring camp. 

 

Joe Nathan of the Minnesota Twins has decided to stay in camp instead of joining Team USA for the World Baseball Classic. Nathan has experienced some soreness in his right shoulder for the past several days.  Nathan does not think this will be anything serious. "I think we backed off it early enough to where it won't be an issue," Nathan said to the Associated Press.  

Nathan who has averaged nearly 40 saves over the past 5 years was slated to be Team USA’s closer. He said the decision to stay at camp instead of playing for his country was a tough one to make. He said he felt fine on Sunday when he got done with his bullpen session, but said he wanted to be cautious and staying with the Twins would allow him to do that. "That's the one advantage I have of being here," Nathan said. "If there's a day I can back off, I can. Being there wouldn't allow me to stay on the schedule I need. I think I'm on the right track now. If things go well, I can be in a game on Thursday."

It is unsure on who will fill the closer role for Team USA, but the most likely candidates for the job will be B.J. Ryan of the Toronto Blue Jays or J.J. Putz of the New York Mets.

Injury Update: Johan Santana Will Be Examined on Monday PDF Print E-mail

UPDATE (8:20PM ET): MOTHER NATURE KEEPS SANTANA IN FLORIDA

Johan Santana had originally planned on flying to New York for an exam scheduled for Monday on his sore left elbow. Bad weather in the northeast would have caused travel problems for Santana. Instead of going to see the doctors in New York, the doctors will come see him. The Mets and Santana will wait until the doctors come to Port St. Lucie.

In reality, Santana would have still battled the weather to New York if his bullpen session on Monday had not gone so well. He threw his scheduled bullpen session on Sunday, and said he felt fine during and after the 31 pitches. This made him and the Mets decide there was no need to fight the weather in the northeast. Even though the soreness in the elbow proved to be not serious, as the Mets have reported all along, it has still delayed Santana’s progress enough where he will most likely miss his first start on opening day.

 

What many had already assumed would take place has now officially been scheduled for Monday. The New York Mets have decided to send pitching ace Johan Santana back to New York for an exam on his sore left elbow. He will receive an MRI to make sure their is nothing structurally wrong that is causing the soreness and tightness in his elbow.

Ease of mind is the reason for the exam according to General Manager Omar Minaya. MLB.com is still reporting that the tightness in Santana’s elbow is not considered serious at this time, but it is setting him back enough where it will most likely cause him to miss his opening day start.
