Elbow surgery will sideline Tigers’ Michael Fulmer for rest of the 2017 season

Ulnar nerve transposition surgery means doctors will move a nerve to a spot in Fulmer’s elbow were it is less likely to be irritated. Fulmer has had issues with numbness and tingling in his fingers on and off all season. There is no structural damage in the elbow.

The 3-4 month recovery indicates Fulmer will be ready for spring, though with the Tigers rebuilding, it stands to reason they will be cautious with their prized young arm. The surgery and recovery will undoubtedly change his offseason workout routine to come degree, so Detroit could take is slow with Fulmer in camp and early in the regular season.

SI: Mets prospect Logan Taylor injured after being attacked by homeless man

Finally, here’s an injury to a Mets player Ron Darling can’t blame on the training staff.

Mets minor league pitcher Logan Taylor was injured Saturday in Salt Lake City when he was attacked by a homeless man in an attempted robbery, a Salt Lake City detective told the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

Taylor, who was in town with the Las Vegas 51s to play the Salt Lake Bees, was approached by 33-year-old Joshua Cruz, who was carrying a tire iron and a sock filled with rocks, detective Greg Wilking told the Review-Journal. Cruz demanded Taylor’s wallet and hit him in the back of the head with the tire iron when he refused.

Taylor, 25, was concussed in the attack and needed six or seven staples to close a wound on his head, manager Pedro Lopez told the Review-Journal. Two of Taylor’s teammates, Dom Smith and Kevin McGowan, witnessed the attack.

Cruz was arrested Saturday and booked into jail on Sunday, charged with aggravated robbery and failure to stop at the command of law enforcement. He remains in jail on $2,500 bond, as of 8:15 p.m. local time Monday.

Syndergaard injury just the latest example of one of baseball’s biggest problems

RoboThal’s latest.

...Smoltz compares pitchers to race cars. The most difficult thing for a pitcher, he explained, is distinguishing between injury and soreness. And with most taught to simply throw as hard as they can, they are unable to adjust to flashing signals on their personal dashboards.
....

“We’re getting dangerously close to every pitcher red-lining when he doesn’t really have to. They’re not preparing to learn how to pitch like it’s a six-gear car. They’re always in sixth gear. Never in fourth or fifth.”
