Collateral Damage Daily for June 14



by Corey Dawkins

Collateral Damage for June 13 Collateral Damage for June 15

Kyle Drabek was about 85 pitches into his game when he was forced to leave after feeling a pop in his elbow. Drabek underwent Tommy John surgery while in the minors back in 2007, so it’s possible he could have just broken up some scar tissue. He did pass several postgame tests. Of course, he could have problems with graft, or could suffer from bone chips, sub-acute tendon inflammation, or none to the above. We’ll have to see what the next few days will show; he’ll probably have an MRI.

Yoenis Cespedes was only able to play a few innings before feeling pain in his hamstring; he had to come out. It looks like he will need a trip to the DL. P.J. Walters was also removed from his game early because of right shoulder stiffness. He had trouble getting loose in the pen before the game, and after giving up four straight hits in the first, he was taken out. He’s going to have some more tests to see what’s going on. It sounds like a DL stint is in his future as well.

Brandon McCarthy’s MRI showed no structural damage, which is encouraging, but the Athletics still haven’t made a decision about his start on Saturday.

Additions

  • Mike Carp was sent to the 15-day DL yesterday with right shoulder inflammation. This shoulder has been given him trouble since spring training, when he landed on the disabled list with a sprained shoulder. He injured it diving for a ball but stayed in the game back in spring training, so it’s not like he dislocated the shoulder. You can still injure the labrum, though, and hitters can often play through small labrum tears for a while before the wear and tear becomes too much.
  • Stephen Pryor was placed on the disabled list yesterday after straining his left groin Tuesday night covering first base. The last few weeks have seen a couple of firsts for Pryor. He got his first MLB win during a no-hitter, and now he’s on the major-league DL for the first time in his career. Relief pitchers with groin strains have averaged 36 days on the DL, so he probably won’t return when he’s eligible on June 28.
  • Ian Stewart is heading back to the DL with more problems in his left wrist. He missed 24 days last year because of inflammation in the wrist and has been battling soreness for most of June. Apparently, it got to the point where he couldn’t effectively play through it any longer. He will be eligible to return on June 28.

Subtractions

  • Franklin Gutierrez was finally activated from the disabled list following his long recovery from a strained pectoral strain and plantar fasciitis. Gutierrez has not been able to stay healthy the last few years, so he’s not going to be playing every day for the rest of the year. That said, he is expected to become the center fielder. Carp was sent to the disabled list to make room for Gutierrez.

It also looks like Troy Tulowitzki re-injured his groin in a rehab game last night. He has two AB (homer and a single off of Trevor Bauer!) but after the single in the third inning he took himself out. Hopefully nothing too serious.

Whoops, that was stupid. Maybe I should read the entire article before basically repeating what you said on the Tulowitzki page.

What do the "return" dates signify? Many of them are in the past, so what are the actual estimated return dates for these players? And could you include a small "key" for these column headings? Thanks!

The "return dates" takes the calculated missed time based on historical data and then adds it to the day they were placed on the DL. It's something we're working on fine tuning.

Alan Farina, Blue Jays, has begun his rehab.

Yeah I saw that the other day and he's about a year out from surgery now so his rehab appears to be right on schedule. He could end up being activated some time in July. He was hit pretty hard the first time so he's probably going to need the full 30-day period.

So what is the label for players like Ellsbury who appear to take much longer than average to recover from injuries? First it's losing almost an entire season to cracked ribs, now closing in on three months for a shoulder injury that your stats claim is a 15-day injury.

It's not clear he gets injured more often than average, but his recovery time from these injuries seems excessive.

Well some players do take longer to heal than others and medicine hasn't cracked the code as to predict which ones they will be.

I wish I had a better answer than simply, I don't know why Ellsbury takes longer. It might have something to do with the degree of injury to the ligaments and capsule. Maybe the Red Sox are hiding other findings like a small labrum tear. Or he could just be that random person who takes longer to heal from injuries.

We just don't know why yet.
