MLB ump Dale Scott retires rather than risk more concussions

Rather than risk yet another concussion, Scott has decided to retire at 58.

“I’m done,” he told the Associated Press.

The veteran crew chief missed nearly the entire 2017 season after a foul ball off the bat of Baltimore slugger Mark Trumbo in Toronto on April 14 caught him hard in the mask, causing Scott’s second concussion in nine months and fourth in five years.

Cubs’ Javier Baez sits out with injured thumb | MLB.com

It’s his thumb not his vision.

“My thumb is kind of jammed a little bit, so I’m taking a day off and I’ll be ready to go [Tuesday],” he said before the Cubs played the Pirates. I told the doctor about my thumb, but we were obviously worried more about the head, the contact. So today it’s pretty swollen. I’ve been icing it. Hopefully I’ll be ready [Tuesday].”

Sometimes you see a rash of injuries and think, “Wow, that’s some bad luck.” I don’t get those thoughts with the Mets.

David Price plagued with left elbow woes again | MLB.com

Ugh.

A topsy-turvy season for Red Sox lefty David Price has added another twist, as the starting pitcher will miss his start Friday and will likely go back on the 10-day disabled list with recurring left elbow woes, a source told MLB.com. Brian Johnson will start Friday night against the Royals.

With injuries piling up, will the Nationals need to change their deadline strategy? - The Washington Post

Not another one.

But Sunday, the shock of Strasburg’s early departure, and the nebulous “forearm stiffness” that caused it, affirmed a disturbing reality. For as easily as the Nationals have built this lead in the National League East, they are one or two injuries away from being another elite team that fell short in the end. With a week until the trade deadline, will they alter their plans accordingly?
