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.

2010 Rays:

Pena 14 games

Bartlett 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.

    • Well, thanks.  Wish I could have replied sooner, was out all day. Good points on Alberto, Ruiz, Severino.  And you're right, it's one of those things and we can't be expected to get all the moves right.  No one bats 1.000.  I don't believe he SHOULD have had a chance, I just question the move for DSJR.  I don't think DSJR was a significantly better upgrade.  For me, a 4th outfielder should be able to field really well and be decent (not amazing with the bat).  Yaz, by all accounts, has a good glove.  DSJR does not.  If the argument is that DSJR is younger, well that's fine.   These are good points worth considering, too.  Even if we brought Yaz up, I don't think he performs here like he did in SF so it's a moot point despite this being a fun, spirited debate.
    • Urias might have had the star turn with a dozen or more K's in a full allotment, but the pull before Yandy on Batter #19 and 4 2/3 innings TTOP orthodoxy in its pure form.  But the bullpen is a chink in the armor.  Brandon Lowe repping for the Terps!
    • I'm not proclaiming him guilty of anything. My first post I said " If true boy was that a stupid thing to do." My second post I said " his alleged activity". Obviously evidence is scant at the moment and this might be something more in the lines of a clerical mistake or nothing at all.  
    • Lot of great points here. I agree and I'll wait for all the facts to come out. My guess the Orioles get a fine and this was used to leverage the Astros situation for a sensational news story when things are quiet outside of the World Series that few actually care about.  
    • Exactly. COVID restrictions really stopped the travel back and forth so it probably didn't make since to have Holt with the team and the minor leaguers. Either way, fraud is a really strong word to use and reeks of click bait by the NY Post.
    • That’s the thing, we have no idea when Holt was added to the coaches pension plan.  If it was when he was first hired in 2019 then it would seem more egregious, but if it was before this season as part of his promotion to Director of Pitching, then it seems more palatable, as his role was intended to blanket the majors & minors, and it sounds like the plan was for him to be in uniform on occasion, even if not once the game starts, since the number of coaches allowed during a game is limited. I just can’t see Elias potentially risking his career by covertly putting Holt in the coaches pension plan without getting approval from the Orioles HR department, or whoever is responsible for matters like this in the organization, along with MLB.  Elias is a smart guy, and only 2 years into what is likely his dream job as the GM of a Major League Baseball team.   I’m sure the other 3 coaches that were designated had to be approved as well, so if there was any issue with designating Holt as the 4th coach, you would think Elias and the O’s organization would have been told that when they first put him on the list of 4. To me, this article seems more like sensationalism, trying to tie Elias in with the Astros cheating scandal and making it seem like this situation with Holt is more of the same, as if anyone associated with the Astros must be deceptive and dishonest.  And the fact that they singled out Anthony Sanders as a coach that got  “screwed” seems like the lawsuit/claim of fraud could have come from his agent, because clearly this story was leaked by someone with an axe to grind.  But what if Holt was designated the 4th coach before Sanders got hired?  The point is, we don’t have all the facts, so to just assume Elias did this covertly to appease Holt without getting approval from anyone seems very irresponsible from a journalistic perspective.   Just the fact that this is being reported at all is obviously unsettling if you’re an O’s fan and a supporter of Elias, but I think this is more about sensationalism and click bait, by using the headline “Ex-Astros” and “fraud” to get people worked up about what is likely not much of anything.  It will be interesting to see if Elias or someone else with the organization talks about it and tries to clear it up, because you know that if he/they don’t, more and more people will start to wonder if this really could be a much more serious situation than it currently appears to be.
