Well, Nationals ace Max Scherzer broke his nose while bunting in batting practice yesterday. I was thinking of posting this in "Strange Injuries", but I'm not sure it's strange enough, LOL. I guess it's only "strange" to American League pitchers Laughing who don't see the necessity for BP!

Anyway, best wishes to him.

Wishing the best to Indians RHP Carlos Carrasco, who has revealed that he's on a leave of absence from the team after having been diagnosed with leukemia.

As if things haven't gone bad enough for the Angels over the past week, catcher Jonathan Lucroy suffered a broken nose and concussion in a home plate collision during Sunday's loss to the Astros at Minute Maid Park. It happened when Astros baserunner Jake Marisnick barreled over Lucroy, and maybe this should be continued in the Controversies thread...but meanwhile, a speedy recovery to JL.

Big Papi has recently undergone his third surgery following the shooting in the D.R. that took place last month.

Best wishes also to Yankees broadcaster Michael Kay, who underwent throat surgery this week and will be away from the booth for a few weeks.

Well, this thread is getting too much action, with the announcement that Cardinals Hall of Fame pitcher Bob Gibson has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.

Best wishes to a true great!

I wish them all a good recovery. The way Gibson has always battled I would not be surprised to see him beat this down.

"Big Papi" has finally been released from Massachusetts General Hospital. The former Red Sox player is in good spirits following a lengthy stay and several surgeries related to his gunshot wound of June 9.

Seriously, I'm not sure why I forgot to post this last week, but Dodgers rookie pitcher Dustin May was hit in the head by a line drive off the bat of Diamondbacks third baseman Jake Lamb, during a game in Arizona on September 1. He passed concussion protocol, but man, that sure hurt to watch.

From dodgers.com:

Quote:
(May) said it helped that the ball got a slight piece of his glove before it hit the band on the side of his hat.

“I’m really just kind of upset that I didn’t catch it,” said May, the Dodgers’ No. 2 prospect per MLB Pipeline. “We’ve just got to look at the positives, that I’m OK.”

Braves infielder Charlie Culberson is the latest to suffer the injury of being hit in the face by a pitch, having been hospitalized after taking a fastball to the eye from Nationals reliever Fernando Rodney, an incident which took place during Sunday's 10-1 win over D.C. in Washington.

Then there are the Angels' two key players both going down. I'll post more about that in the team thread.

Charlie's a good guy. I wish him a quick recovery! I'm guessing we'll probably face the Braves in the playoffs again.

Best wishes to him.

While we had some down time, there was a scary moment for Mark Langston, whose heart actually stopped beating. Fortunately, he's recovering well, although he still doesn't know what caused the problem.

Texas outfielder Willie Calhoun underwent surgery for a fractured jaw on Monday. This followed a HBP injury sustained during Sunday's Dodgers-Rangers game.

From MLB.com:

Quote:
Doctors still have not determined if Calhoun sustained a concussion. He was hit in the right side of the mouth by a 95-mph fastball thrown by Dodgers pitcher Julio Urías on Sunday. Major League Baseball, in those cases, operates under the presumption that a player did suffer a concussion until he has been cleared through protocol


Best wishes to him for a speedy recovery.

I saw that, pretty scary. It looked so painful!

On another topic...best wishes to Orioles outfielder Trey Mancini, who is recovering following surgery to remove a cancerous tumor in his colon.

And now not only has another minor leaguer tested positive, but former major league player Jim Edmonds is hospitalized and being tested. Wishing him well!

Oh, dear Vin. Please be well.

Mr. Scully suffered a fall at home, and is currently hospitalized (not a good time to be hospitalized, and not a good time to be 92!).

He says he's not sliding headfirst anymore. Smile

An update on Orioles outfielder Trey Mancini: he's currently undergoing treatment for Stage 3 colon cancer, with six months of chemo prescribed. Best wishes to him.
