Mike Napoli to undergo facial surgery

The procedure, called bimaxillary advancement surgery, separates the front portions of the lower and upper jaw and moves them forward to allow for more room behind the tongue, reducing the chances of obstruction.

To combat sleep apnea.  This sounds deeply unpleasent.  And I certainly hope it does a little better than ‘reducing the chances’ for him continuing to have the issue.

Guerrero injured in dugout fight with Olivo | MiLB.com

It used to be a dog eat dog world.

Albuquerque second baseman Alex Guerrero needed surgery on his left ear after getting attacked by teammate Miguel Olivo during a dugout fight at Triple-A Salt Lake on Tuesday, and both Salt Lake police and the Dodgers are investigating.
...
Morosi said police have “gathered evidence about the incident and collected witness statements, according to Boras. Guerrero’s recovery timetable is uncertain, Boras said. It’s not clear yet how many stitches the surgery will require.”

Edit: Link fixed. Sorry, Jim.
