Former White Sox pitcher Bobby Jenks wins $5.1 million in settlement with Massachusetts General Hospital

Former Boston Red Sox and White Sox pitcher Bobby Jenks has won a $5.1 million dollar settlement with Massachusetts General Hospital and Dr. Kirkham Wood.

Jenks had a brief, yet successful MLB career, collecting a 2005 World Series ring with the White Sox. Jenks career ended in 2011 after further injury issues, which it turned out were caused by Dr. Wood’s surgery. 

In December 2011, Jenks had spinal decompression surgery at MGH and was told that while the surgery does not guarantee anything, it was his best chance to return to the league.

Diamondbacks outfielder Steven Souza Jr. needs season-ending knee surgery after slipping on home plate

On Tuesday, the Arizona Diamondbacks announced outfielder Steven Souza Jr. will undergo season-ending surgery to repair a substantial left knee injury that includes an ACL tear, LCL tear, partial PCL tear, and posterior lateral capsule tear. Souza exited Monday’s exhibition game against the Chicago White Sox at Chase Field after a scary slip while he was crossing home plate.

Souza, 29, missed most of 2018 because of injuries. He hit .220 with five home runs and 29 RBIs in 272 plate appearances (72 games) in last year. He had been pegged to serve as Arizona’s everyday right fielder, but the D-Backs will likely use veteran Adam Jones to fill the spot.

Jones signed a one-year, $3 million contract with the Diamondbacks earlier this month. That leaves Ketel Marte in for the everyday role in center field and David Peralta in left. Jarrod Dyson projects to come off the bench as the Diamondbacks’ fourth outfielder.

Expecting people to start to argue that players need not run the bases in 3, 2, 1….
