Maybe the Red Sox need the Orioles’ doctors to examine future free agents.
Just when Sandoval will return is up in the air, as the procedure is reconstructive. The Red Sox didn’t insure Sandoval’s shoulder when he signed prior to the 2015 season, as there was no physical need to do so. Since that time, though, his shoulder has obviously suffered and degraded, and for all we know it could have been part of his problem a year ago and this spring.

This was not a good day for the Yankees.
After the game, in which relievers Andrew Miller and Bryan Mitchell were injured, Girardi was waiting on test results and still not sure what his pen looked like.

But when you tell a story like Gustavo Cabrera’s, you have to show people his face. And so the kid and the ink-stained wretch did the best they could in the harsh light. They had 10 minutes together before batting practice would begin. It didn’t help that his curious teammates kept crowding around, tossing a baseball at his shins and trying to get him to laugh.
“How about a serious one,” the reporter said. “Mas grave.”
Cabrera kept smiling. Even his neutral expression had a hint of a smile. Looking tough? That wasn’t going to happen. After everything he’d been through to get back on a baseball field, he didn’t need to look tough. He already proved he was.

Pittsburgh Press, March 23, 1916:
John Collins was nursing a bum nose today. He biffed himself with a bat when he missed one of Bob Russell’s curves in a practice game. Rowland played doctor by grasping John’s nose in clothespin fashion, this putting broken bones back into place.
That must have been…something.
When I was a kid, maybe 10 years old, I swung a bat as hard as I could and somehow my arms wrapped around my body and I smashed myself in the side of the head with the bat. I’ve never felt pain like that before or since, and I hope I never will.

Yankees first baseman Greg Bird will miss the 2016 season due to a torn labrum in his right shoulder.
Bird initially hurt his shoulder last May while in the minors, and felt discomfort again this offseason. He will have surgery Tuesday to repair the torn labrum.

Yu Darvish, Rangers
In a crowded AL West, Darvish has the ability to shift the scales considerably when he returns from Tommy John surgery. The latest guess is that the defending division champs will get him back in May, making for a fearsome twosome of Darvish and Cole Hamels atop Texas’ rotation. Hamstrung by some other colossal contracts they’ve doled out in recent years, the Rangers haven’t made much noise this offseason. But they know Darvish, who has a 3.27 ERA and 128 ERA+ over 83 career starts, is their ace in the hole.

I don’t think the Indians will be Sports Illustrated’s pre-season World Series pick next year.
Cleveland Indians outfielder Michael Brantley underwent arthroscopic shoulder surgery on his non-throwing arm earlier today, MLB.com’s Jordan Bastian confirmed on Twitter. He is expected to be out 5-6 months, which means he would miss two months of the 2016 regular season in the worst case scenario.
Brantley injured his shoulder on a diving catching against the Minnesota Twins back on September 22. An MRI toward the end of the 2015 revealed inflammation in the injured shoulder, and the Indians shut Brantley down for the final week of the season, putting him on a two-week rehab program.
At the time, it was thought that Brantley’s shoulder injury was not quite so severe and letting him rest the remained of the season was just a precaution, as the Indians were already out of the playoff picture at that point. We know now, however, that the injury was obviously much more severe.
for his generous support.
