***Official 2013 Injury Overreaction Thread (1 Viewer)

Giancarlo Stanton is optimistic that he's OK after he was hit on the back of the head and at the top of his neck by a pitch from prospect right-hander Jose Fernandez on Wednesday during a simulated game.
I wasn’t dizzy or nothing. I saw a little greyness, fuzziness on the outside of my eyes," explained Stanton
 
Marlins catcher Jeff Mathis is out for six weeks after breaking his right collarbone. The Marlins are doomed.

 
Brewers right-hander Yovani Gallardo has a minor groin strain that will cause him to miss his next spring training start and could limit him from playing for Mexico in the World Baseball Classic.

Oh no, not the consumption. RIP. MT @jaysonst: Roy Halladay says he's lost "maybe 10 pounds" in the last 2 days.
Halladay definitely starting to worry me.
He slaughtered my NL-only last year. He's on my don't touch list now for sure, and his status updates keep getting more bizarre.
You're facebook friends with him?
:lmao: That would probably result in even weirder pieces of information than losing 10 pounds in an hour, etc. But at least I could tell him how he ruined my season in '12, and I could try to get friended with Hamels' wife.

 
Adam Eaton sprained his elbow. He and Gibby rubbed some dirt on it but it didn't help. He's down 6-8 weeks.

Bump for Gerardo Parra (and AJ Pollack in deeper leagues).

 
Brett Lawrie starting the season on the DL with a strained rib cage. I still don't understand the obsession with this guy.

 
Breaking news for people in >20 team leagues

Wilson Betemit carted off the field with knee injury.

I'm not obsessed but he is in a pretty potent line up so he should get to see some good pitches especially with guys on base.
So says Colby Rasmus. Problem is big bats don't necessarily make others down in the order better (see Brennan Boesch, Alex Avila, Delmon Young, Brandon Inge, etc).

This is the common argument, but it's amazing to see the people who get paid to make recommendations nearly uniformly advise people to draft him early, as if he's done it before. Before I'm spending an early round pick, I need to see at least one good season, and certainly not a history of injuries.

I think it's a product of 3B being weak. After Miggy, Longoria, Beltre, Wright, Zimmerman, ARamirez, Sandoval and HRamirez, almost everyone is unproven or has injury issues, Lawrie may have the highest upside of that group though.
 
Venters left the game today with what's being called an elbow sprain. He's had a very poor ST up to now.

Regardless of what is said before or after it, the phrase “going to see Dr. Andrews” ranks near the bottom of things any pitcher wants included in the same sentence with his name.Jonny Venters is going to see Dr. Andrews.The Braves reliever will have his sore left elbow checked out by orthopedic surgeon James Andrews on Wednesday, the earliest the doctor could see him due to Easter weekend. Andrews did Tommy John elbow surgery to repair Venters’ torn ulnar collateral ligament in 2005.Venters left Tuesday’s game against Detroit with tightness in the elbow, but said he didn’t hear a pop of the sort that he heard when he hurt it in 2005.“It didn’t swell up,” he said. “(Wednesday) it wasn’t terrible, soreness-wise. Most of the soreness is in my muscles. So that’s good. I don’t know what the plan is…. I’m not too awful worried about it being anything.”
