Tyler Glasnow erratic start ends with injury | pirates.com

The team said the 22-year-old Glasnow was lifted because of right shoulder discomfort, but did not elaborate further, including Hurdle and Glasnow both declining to say what Glasnow’s status is other than “taking it day by day.”

Hurdle said Glasnow did not tell him his shoulder was bothering him; Glasnow said he did not attempt to talk Hurdle and Tomczyk into letting him stay in the game.

“Just visually, we looked at him moving his arm around—didn’t like how it looked and looked like it was uncomfortable,” Hurdle said. “So we went out at that time and talked to him and removed him.”

Rangers’ Prince Fielder has herniated disk | texasrangers.com

Free Joey Gallo!

The Rangers could be without designated hitter Prince Fielder for the rest of the season after he was diagnosed with another herniated disk in his neck.

Both he and outfielder Shin-Soo Choo, who is dealing with inflammation in his lower back, were placed on the 15-day disabled list on Wednesday. The Rangers have recalled infielder Hanser Alberto and outfielder Delino DeShields from Triple-A Round Rock.

The herniation is just above a previous injury that was surgically repaired on May 27, 2014, forcing Fielder to miss the rest of that season. Fielder has been bothered by the problem for some time, but did not report it to the Rangers until Monday.

Link between concussions and suicide

I haven’t read the study in question and there are obvious limitations to the study but a surprisingly large effect.  Note the results here are for any concussion not just severe ones.  They are not looking at ahtletes here, this is not necessarily CTE-related.  Anyway, the tip at the end of the article seems good advice: consider a concussion an important part of your medical history from now on.
