Angels’ Jared Walsh opens up about neurological issues: ‘It’s been hell’ | The Athletic

It had been more than a full year of misery for Jared Walsh. A year that not only robbed him of the ability to play baseball at his highest level. But it was also a year that robbed him of sleep. It robbed him of his ability to simply move his body without tremors.

It robbed him of his depth perception. He’d walk into walls, unable to properly understand where his body was in relation to everything else.

Walsh believes that COVID-19 could have played a role in his issues. He tested positive for the virus on three separate occasions, beginning in mid-2020. He said he felt as though the virus didn’t affect him much at the time, but acknowledged these long-term impacts could have a direct correlation.

He’s been told by doctors that this will not impact his career over the long term. Walsh has been told by his physicians that they’ve seen worse cases than his that have led to recoveries. The concern clearly won’t be quashed until his symptoms go away fully.

Rays pitcher Jeffrey Springs to miss at least 2 months with arm issue

TORONTO — The Rays are waiting for additional opinions on what exactly is wrong in Jeffrey Springs’ left arm, but enough is known that the starting pitcher is expected to be sidelined for at least two months.

That timetable, reported by the Tampa Bay Times, also would indicate that the injury is more than just an inflamed and/or irritated ulnar nerve, as Springs and the team were hoping.

The precise issue, and its severity, will determine the course of treatment and ultimate timeline for Springs’ return. A torn ulnar collateral ligament, for example, could require Tommy John surgery and sideline the left-hander into the second half of the 2024 season.

Springs started the season 2-0, 0.56 ERA with 24 strikeouts in 16 innings pitched.
