Will Carroll's Under The Knife is called the "industry standard" by Peter Gammons and that's good enough for us. Carroll's groundbreaking work on injuries have led to it becoming a standard part of the discussion in baseball. Whether you're a fantasy fan or checking out how your team will be without a star, there's simply no other place to get this kind of daily information.

Under The Knife: Beast of Burden

0

Will Carroll

Once again, I watched the ESPN Sunday Night game in HD. Unfortunately, the great picture doesnt make Joe Morgan any sharper. I had no rooting interest in the game, but hoped that Id see something interesting. If a game-winning bomb by Albert Pujols off John Smoltz doesnt count, maybe the unassisted triple play by Rafael Furcal does. Id never seen one of those and if Id blinked, Id have missed it. The downside of HD is that TiVo doesnt work, so theres no pause, no rewind, no saving what I saw for posterity. Ill file that game in my mind, with the others, and Ill remind myself next time I say "Why am I watching this game? Sex and the City is on..." that in baseball, anything can happen, anytime.

Onto the injuries...

Under The Knife: Injury Eye for the Sports Guy

0

Will Carroll

After not getting dealt, the teams that might have traded for him have to be exhaling. Cory Lidle is dealing with both a groin problem and a "dead arm." He'll likely miss a start and Lidle himself has questioned what he has left for the rest of the season. The Jays have options, but won't bring up any of their talented trio of minor league starters until at least September, if then. The rehabbing Yanks are making progress. Jose Contreras worked a simulated game after a planned rehab start was rained out. He'll head to the mound for that rehab start in Tampa next Monday. For Jon Lieber, he's throwing batting practice and building up arm strength. Both could be in the Bronx by September, but while I'll guarantee Contreras will be there, there isn't as much reason to rush Lieber. Bartolo Colon paused in yesterday's game and was looked at by the training staff and pitching coach. Just a spasm, though Scott McCauley's diagnosis of "pulled fat" drew laughter. The Sox also got the MRI results on Miguel Olivo's shoulder and--like on the North Side with Prior--it was just a bad bruise. He's likely out through the weekend.

  • The Mets finally got their answer. With a month-and-a-half left in another desolate season, and six games between them and division leading Atlanta, Cliff Floyd is heading for the showers. Floyd will have season-ending surgery sometime soon, likely after Mike Piazza returns on August 13th (yes, the date has moved). Floyd wants to have Piazza to take over his place as "the man" in the Mets lineup, said my Mets source. The surgery to shave bone from near the Achilles tendon is not major and Floyd should be back for spring training, hopefully without the chronic pain. Piazza had great results in his minor league rehab outing in Norfolk, hitting a home run. He'll catch tomorrow, a big test for his groin. (Yes, there's an AL team looking very hard at dealing for Piazza in the off-season.)

    Under The Knife: Beware of the Red Light

    0

    Will Carroll

    After a great night at the ballpark with BP intern Cliff Roscow and the attendees of our first "Baseball 101" presentation, I'm coming in a bit late and, in fact, I'm already well past deadline. Rather than skip a day of UTK--yeah, I know how to keep you addicted--this will be short, stripped down, and tight: think of it as the White Stripes edition of UTK. If this and the rest of the content at BP Premium isn't enough for you, let me recommend checking out a phenomenal interview with Michael Lewis by some-time BP contributor Alex Belth. OK, onto the injuries...

  • While the red light I dropped on Roy Oswalt back in February should have got you thinking about how effective he would be this season, I don't think anyone thought that it would be his groin causing all the problems. The Astros didn't give updates to the media regarding his condition after the game, but reports indicate that this is a recurrence of the injury that landed him on the DL twice this summer. It's so bad that this time, surgery is being discussed in real terms, like "When should we schedule it?" Jose De Jesus Ortiz of the Houston Chronicle reminds us that Oswalt missed the end of 2001 with groin problems, meaning this isn't just a groin problem, this is a chronic groin problem.

    Under The Knife: Achieving Immortality

    Will Carroll

    Congratulations to Eddie Murray, Gary Carter, Bob Uecker and Hal McCoy for their inclusion among baseball's immortals. Uecker's speech was one I hoped to hear, but Comcast doesn't see fit to provide me with ESPN Classic among the 16 versions of Lifetime spread across the 340 channels of digital cable. And speaking of things that I'd like to see: if they can't have the exhibition game there during induction weekend, why not put together a team of reserves and prospects and play an exhibition under, say, 1896 rules. Pick a different year every year, do up the (marketable) uniforms and funny hats, and for at least a couple years, people would watch. It couldn't be any worse an idea than "This Time It Counts!"

    Matt Mantei is nearing his return to the mound--and his next appearance in UTK. Fred McGriff goes on the DL for the first time in his career. Melvin Mora's off-the-charts season hits a snag. These and other injury updates in today's Under The Knife by Will Carroll.

    With that being said, a number of e-mails came to me yesterday mentioning that there should be more responsibility taken on by the players for their own health. In the piece, that was one of my main points. While having MLB and MLBPA make a grand gesture with complete physicals would be much better in terms of publicity, preventative medicine on the part of the players themselves needs to become more common. And I'm not saying--as someone wrote in an e-mail--that each player should have MRIs, CT scans, or other sophisticated tests. I think each player should go to their family doctor--just like you or I can--and have the same thorough physical--just like you or I can--with appropriate follow-up care or additional tests.

    Ruben Mateo elicits crickets, Kevin Witt gets a nod from Ken Phelps, the Astros have rotation issues, and who the heck is Miguel Ojeda? News, notes, and witticisms on 21 major-league teams.
