Baseball loses $1.1 billion to pitching injuries over 5-year period
Forbes
Hallelujah. Baseball is here. The exhibition season is in full swing and hope springs eternal. Well, not in Texas, unfortunately for Rangers fans, where it's déjà vu all over again. Following a 2014 season with over 2000 player days lost to the disabled list, the Rangers' ace right-hander Yu Darvish managed all of one inning of one spring start before exiting with what was quickly diagnosed as a sprained ulnar collateral ligament. While Tommy John surgery is the usual remedy for an UCL, Darvish is considering his options, such as they are. Presumably throwing left-handed is not under consideration.

Expanding Sports Concussion Laws May Help Ensure Safety of All Teenage Athletes
Medical News Today
Recent concussion laws that set out to prevent head injuries in American teenage athletes should be extended to include the activities of summer camps, travel teams and all-star teams. This will ensure that all children and youths who suffer head injuries receive appropriate care and education. So says Thomas Trojian of Drexel University College of Medicine, lead author of a study that showed a marked increase in the number of teenagers receiving medical treatment for sports-related concussions after laws pertaining to these injuries were passed in Connecticut in 2010. The findings are published in Springer's journal Injury Epidemiology.

    New Hope for Treating Knee Injuries
    CBS News
    Drake Ross is recovering from surgery to fix the meniscus in his knee. He's the first patient in the U.S. to undergo a new procedure using a plastic replacement. "I'm looking forward to being pain free," Ross told CBS News. "I have real bad arthritis too and that's part of what contributed." The meniscus is cartilage between the shin and thigh bones. Once it's damaged, it doesn't always heal, which can cause a person to experience chronic knee pain. It can lead to arthritis, and sometimes patients end up needing knee replacement surgery.

    Injury, Surgery Can Increase Risk of Embolisms in Athletes
    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
    Because of what happened to him nearly 20 years ago, Brad Jones is hypersensitive to any news about life-threatening pulmonary embolisms in athletes, whether it's Penguins winger Pascal Dupuis or tennis star Serena Williams. In 1996, Mr. Jones, now a video producer in Beaver Falls, was finally ready to step into his role as a starting guard on the Penn State football team. A week after he helped his teammates crush the University of Southern California in the Kickoff Classic, though, the 6-foot-6-inch, 285-pound lineman started coughing up blood.
