Stark: Tommy John Surgery ‘epidemic’?

we’ve already seen 14 major league pitchers undergo Tommy John surgery just this year. And two others are scheduled to have surgery next week: Yankees starter Ivan Nova and Rangers reliever Pedro Figueroa.

And this is happening in a sport that averaged fewer than 16 of those surgeries per year between 2000 and 2011.

Grover Alexander used to rub horse lineament on his arm.

That was Goslin.

Because what's good for the Goose is good for Alexander.

Well, we know what Manny Alexander did.

Has anyone consulted Moises Alou about this?
