The volume of injuries finally has slowed down to a normal level. Still, we are getting our share of elbow injuries, and yes, another couple of strained obliques ...

Up until last week, the theme for this major league season was the oblique injury, with a record setting number of this type of injury already having occurred. We get a reprieve if only for a week or so but I’m sure there are better ways to take our minds off these pesky side injuries. This week three high profile players battle elbow issues and all three eventually could be Tommy John candidates.

Quality starting pitchers are hard to replace and with two new key injuries to Jaime Garcia and Carl Pavano, their owners are looking for any decent arms. Plus a bunch of retroactive moves this week.

When I began covering injuries back in 1993, Tommy John surgery was not nearly as successful as it is now. Torn labrums, flexor mass injuries, modified Mumford surgery, microfracture knee surgery and others were rarely reported because they either didn’t exist or the journalist reporting on the injury did not report true name for various reasons. And oblique injuries? Very, very rare.

Another fun week at the office watching the waiver wire and transaction wires run at full speed. Even with all the disabled list moves we've had, just a tad over 250 so far, this is not a record setting pace—yet.

With Roy Halladay and Jered Weaver landing on the disabled list week, the fallacy that some players were shielded from going on the DL has been exposed.

Concussions and oblique injuries seem to be in-vogue this season and we have more of the same this week. Plus several key players come off the DL ...

Up until the past couple of days, the Texas Rangers had been able to avoid placing a player on the disabled list. What does the future hold for the Rangers and Feliz? Plus two veteran bats land on the disabled list.
