Collateral Damage Daily for August 29



by Corey Dawkins

Collateral Damage for August 28 Collateral Damage for August 30

Matt Kemp left last night�s game with a right knee contusion after running into the wall. He is set to have an MRI on his knee and a CT scan on his jaw. He�s day-to-day for now. � Yadier Molina was injured in a violent collision at the plate last night. He was diagnosed with back, shoulder, and neck strains but reportedly passed a concussion test last night. He will still be monitored for ay concussion symptoms over the next few days and is day-to-day for the muscle strains. � Matt Joyce left yesterday�s game with a left forearm strain. He is not expected to go on the disabled list. � Bud Norris left last night�s game with a blister on his throwing hand and will probably make his next start.

Additions

  • Gavin Floyd was placed on the 15-day DL, retroactive to August 27, with a strained right elbow. The MRI ruled out any major structural damage but did reveal a strain to the flexor mass of the elbow, the same structure that was inflamed earlier in 2012. Given the timing of the injury, Floyd is likely finished for the season. In a corresponding move, Dylan Axelrod was recalled from the minors.
  • Franklin Morales was placed on the DL with left shoulder fatigue. The move was retroactive to August 24, so he is eligible to return on September 8. Morales has suffered from shoulder inflammation and fatigue before, most recently during spring training, which raises concern for an even bigger injury. Zach Stewart will start in Morales� place today.

Subtractions

  • Blake Parker was activated from the 60-day DL yesterday after missing the last 87 days with a stress reaction in his elbow. Even though he has missed most of the season, he actually recovered faster than the majority of relief pitchers do. Alex Hinshaw was designated for assignment in a corresponding move.

I think you mean Zach Britton not Zach Wheeler as the replacement SP for Morales.

You're both wrong! It is actually Zach Stewart!

Yup it's Zach Stewart. I have to fix my autocorrect.

Should be all set now.

Yadier Molina may have passed the concussion test (post-game quote: "They did a bunch of tests. I was fine with the tests. There was no concussion. Just a really bad headache."), but that didn't stop the Cardinals from pulling caddy Bryan Anderson out of his AAA game and immediately launching him toward Pittsburgh, where he will be activated.

Agreed. Usually the symptoms are the worst immediately after the injury but symptoms can wax and wane.

Molina did reportedly pass another round of concussion tests and the headaches are gone but he still has the shoulder and back pain. This is probably the real reason why Bryan Anderson was called up.

Yes I know. He's listed under the Red Sox to not penalize the Dodgers.

With the number of activations every year on 9/1 or 9/2 due to roster expansion (when a player could/should have been activated earlier), do you feel there is any need to revise any of the historical "days lost" counts by injury due to this date?
It may not have a real impact on averages, but I was just curious if saying "sprained thumb is 50 days" is really accurate if some of those thumbs could have been activated a few days earlier than they were, but for the expansion date, and really the actual average is more like 48.

Good points but it's going to be hard to tease out and may not ever be able to. Typically between 15 and 22 are activated on 9/1 and there are certainly a bunch that could activated a few days earlier.

It would be great to revise it but the difficulty is determining when the player was really ready. If we say the start of rehab assignments that's clearly not accurate, especially since we have seen several players aggravate their injuries.

While it may not be perfectly accurate, I think it's the best we have right now.

Appreciate the response. I'd have guessed the number activated would have more like double the 15-22, so a reduced volume would certainly make the extra work unneeded.
