Baseball Therapy: That Peak Age Thing, Part 2

6

Russell A. Carleton

Pitchers, unlike hitters, have no discernible pattern for reaching their peaks but they do often flame out quickly.

Last week, I looked at the question of when hitters hit their peak and came away with the very unsatisfying answer of "it depends." Good hitters peak later. Even leaving aside the usual cries of "treat everyone as an individual!" there are different peak ages in the aggregate among different groups. The details matter.

Under The Knife: Teach Me Lessons

An update on injuries that adds to our understanding of hip problems, when specialists aren't really specialists, and how in the world that DL works.

Alex Gordon (60 DXL)

Alex Rodriguez... copy... paste. It would be easy to do that: to say that Gordon's injury is so equivalent to Alex Rodriguez's that I could go green and just recycle some of my words. Injuries are individualized, however, and no two people, not even two third basemen named Alex with the same injury, are going to react in the same way. The problem is, I don't see any differences. Gordon is going to have the same procedure on something that sounds like the same injury performed by the same doctor. Gordon is said to be a workout freak who's in great shape, so his conditioning should work in his favor just as it has for Rodriguez. That leaves us with the same timetable, six to eight weeks for a return, though it's difficult to say if Rodriguez is ahead of the timetable or if he is in fact setting it. In the meantime, the Royals will shift Mark Teahen to third base. As to why there's an "epidemic" of hip injuries, it's mostly the result of a change in diagnostics. These types of injuries present as a groin strain, so it's current thinking that chronic groin strains of the past might have actually been lingering hip problems.
