Injuries happen

Recommended Posts

As we prepare for the 2011 season, we need to remember that injuries happen. Here's a litany of Oriole injuries over the last 5 years. I probably forgot a couple, but if so, they should be minor players.

2010

Roberts 91 games

Pie 72 games

Scott 14 games

Wieters 11 games

Montanez 93 games

Uehara 62 games

Gonzalez 90 games

Johnson 106 games

Hernandez 33 games

Berken 47 games

Simon 20 games

Millwood 12 games

Total: 281 games offense, 12 games starting pitchers, 358 games relievers

2009

Izturis 31 games

Reimold 16 games

Jones 29 games

Scott 14 games

Pie 9 games

Montanez 107 games

Hill 100 games

Uehara 109 games

Bergesen 61 games

Total: 206 games offense, 270 games starting pitchers, 0 relief pitchers

2008

Jones 26 games

Sherrill 25 games

Sarfate 19 games

Guthrie 26 games

Walker 28 games

Albers 85 games

Loewen 135 games

Trachsel 11 games

Bierd 70 games

Johnson 26 games

Total: 26 games offense, 172 games starting pitchers, 253 games relievers (excludes Baez and Ray, who missed the entire year)

2007

Ramon Hernandez 33 games

Tejada 23 games

Payton 16 games

Patterson 24 games

Mora 20 games

Bynum 37 games

Bedard 33 games

Guthrie 16 games

Ray 66 games

Baez 39 games

Wright 155 games

Loewen 135 games

Trachsel 17 games

Totals: 153 games offense, 356 games starting pitchers, 105 games relievers (excludes Benson, who missed the entire year)

2006

Roberts 21 games

Patterson 15 games

J. Lopez 13 games

Gibbons 53 games

Newhan 116 games

Gomez 55 games

Hawkins 15 games

Benson 16 games

Cabrera 19 games

Totals: 273 games offense, 35 games starting pitchers, 15 games relievers (excludes Penn getting appendicitis immediately after being called up and before he pitched).

Although the BRob injury last year was a bad one, and we had multiple injuries to relievers, we were extremely fortunate with our starting pitchers. We probably won't be that fortunate in 2011. Hopefully the starting lineup and bullpen will have better luck than last year. Overall, we have to expect that we'll lose 300 - 650 games to injury, and hope that those injuries don't hit our most important players.

Looking at some of those names from 06 and 07 is cringe worthy.

Troy Patton was a rotation candidate in 08 before he tore his labrum in ST.
See, I thought it was torn when we traded for him.

I think the numbers listed for the Orioles are somewhat skewed, as Montanez and/or Hill probably would have been in the minors had they not been hurt. By comparison, the Red Sox suffered injuries to their key players.

This is why I feel that picking up a "veteran starter", even if he is a starter-only type like Millwood rather than a swing man like Chen, is not a problem. You rarely get out of spring training with your projected 5 starters all healthy, and you certainly don't get very far in the season.

The Orioles knew he was damaged goods when he was traded.

In my recollection, he claimed to be okay and that his shoulder was just a little stiff in ST, but after he threw a bullpen session was shut down, then he tried to rehab it but eventually got surgery. He definitely spent some time not on the DL in ST and was considered a rotation candidate in that time.

Pena 14 games

I'd say Tampa was extremely fortunate in 2010.

Pretty correct.

But IIRC, the Orioles were hoping he would be better by ST, but they knew of the injury. When he wasn't alright in ST is when they shut him down and it came out that the Orioles knew about the injury.

Shouldn't Johnson come with some sort of built-in adjustment for games missed?

Seriously, this is exactly why we need to add a quality veteran starter and at least one more reliever.

    • I don't see them paying for a FA stopgap in a year they won't be expected to contend.
    • I was at that game in 1993. I was seated in the lower deck of Yankee Stadium on the third-base side, looking out toward right field.  I saw the play from pretty much the same angle that the umpire would have seen it. And I didn't know, until I read about it in the paper the next day, what had happened, because I completely lost track of the ball as it descended against the backdrop of three decks of seats filled with fans.  I assumed, since Mattingly jogged around the bases, that it had landed in the seats beyond the wall. Perhaps the umpire, from his vantage point on the field, should have been close enough to see the play better than I could.  But I could understand why it could have been tough for him.
    • Zimmermann had a bad debut (3 IP 5 ER) but a good second outing (4 IP 1 ER).   So, I certainly didn’t get a negative impression of him.   I look forward to seeing what he can contribute next year.   
    • For 2B how about bringing back Jonathan Schoop or Jurickson Profar. Todd Feazier one year  deal for3B. 
    • I agree with RZ about sticking with Ruiz.  We don't have anyone better internally unless someone switches positions.   If there is a clear upgrade available at 3B for the major league roster, I think we could pursue anyone that is cheap - cheap to acquire and cheap to pay.  Ruiz was available as a cheap, failed prospect and if we could acquire another one and try it again, I would be fine with that.
    • I think I tend to be not as high on overslots as most people. Let's take Hokum Sven Kim as a hypothetical.  Hokum's number is $1.5 million.  He's still there in the eleventh round and the O's pick him up and with the savings from going underslot in the first round given Hokum his 1.5M. Now some folks will say the O's picked up a mid second round talent in the eleventh round, since 1.5M is slot for the 49.5 pick in the draft. The way I look at it, if other teams though Hokum was a mid second round talent they would have just picked him and coughed up the 1.5M. Either Hokum's number would have been even higher if he had gone earlier, which is possible, or teams didn't think his price matched his talent and he's probably closer to say a third round talent.
    • Maybe not even better than what we have now, but cheaper (i.e. not arbitration eligible). When you are in such a cost cutting move that you are getting rid of coaches, I think they will look long and hard at going to arbitration with anyone who is unlikely to be a prime MLB performer for the next several years. At least they won't get any flak for cancelling Fanfest to save a few pennies this offseason.
