Financial advisors warn of ignoring facts or history for any given investment. We apply that approach to baseball players in this pre-draft spring training edition.

This first edition of Dr. HQ for 2013 will look at selected players that could start the year on the disabled list due to injury. Be prepareed for both the risk and the possible loss of playing time early on.

With the end of the regular season almost here, it’s time for our annual look at pitching injuries that cost pitchers most or all of 2012. In a lot of cases, Tommy John surgery was the end result. While it appears that Tommy John surgeries were up noticeably this season, the numbers are not out of the ordinary when compared to other seasons.

As we inch closer to the end of the 2012 season, this will be the last look at players and what their status is for the remainder of the year.

At this point in the season, teams rarely use the DL. But don't think the injures stop; just ask Mark Teixeira. Here's some other notables that could affect a fanalytic championship race.

The season is getting ready to enter September when rosters expand. That is a difficult time of the year to manage your roster because teams don't typically place players on the DL, and injury information become more difficult to find. This will be the last normal "injury transactions" week of the season. Then, it's a free for all!

It’s a bit early for my annual lessons learned from injuries and recoveries for the 2012 season as the disabling of Johan Santana triggered this column. The purpose of this column is two-fold. One it’s a review for me as an exercise in reviewing the way I evaluate player injuries. I try not to get stuck in a rut saying so-and-so will be out 36 days because that’s what my injury database says. Focus on the player, and then situation and medical information then use the database as a guide. Two, my hope it helps you garner more knowledge with selected injury situations.

As we inch closer to September 1 and roster expansion, teams are still placing players on the DL at a record pace. While there aren't any real big names out this week, at this time of the year, the free agent pool is bone dry and no help can be found unless you make a deal. Here are the DL'd players for this week...

After a quiet couple of weeks, we get major injury to the Red Sox' Will Miidlebrooks, plus CC Sabathia of the Yankees and Mike Napoli of the Rangers. Is this a turning point of season?

Unfortunately it’s starting to be that time of year: any significant injury can be season-ending. Here are four current injuries that might be season-enders.
