Sims: Don’t Expect Bobby Parnell To Pitch For Mets Again This Season

The two weeks of rest sound like a smokescreen to me, and like so many other pitchers who have already fallen to elbow issues at this early stage of the season, I wouldn’t expect Parnell to take the mound for the Mets until 2015.

Sims: Why Are So Many Pitchers Having To Undergo Tommy John Surgery?

Many have taken note of the epidemic of Tommy John surgeries in baseball of late, and the reason for it is both straightforward and enigmatic.

Understanding the nature of stress fractures and the progression that often occurs from stress-reaction injuries makes the explanation fairly straightforward.

Sims: Ike Davis’ Early Injury A Cause For Concern For Mets

It doesn’t take a medical degree to know that the walking boot currently sported by Ike Davis foreshadows a troubled early season for the Mets’ oft-injured first baseman.

Sims: How Will Wrist Surgery Affect Mark Teixeira’s Swing?

Will the Yankees first baseman be more guarded batting from the left side? We’ll soon see for ourselves once he hits the field.

This is not a new course of care for the oft-injured star, who evidently underwent three cortisone injections and PRP treatment for bilateral ankle issues last season as well.

Sims: Breaking Down Kobe Bryant’s Knee Injury

When Kobe Bryant returned to the court on December 8 following months of rehab on the repaired left Achilles he’d torn in April, he did so confidently – at least in words. In actions, not so much.

Whether or not Giants running back David Wilson is ultimately cleared to return to the field, his stenosis poses risks.

Sims: Breaking Down Antonio Cromartie’s Reported Injury

Though an MRI evidently did not reveal significant injury, and no specific diagnoses were made public, Cromartie is clearly not up to speed.

Sims: A Look At Matt Harvey’s Arizona Fall League Paradox

Having thoroughly assessed both Harvey’s injury and his recovery to date, the Mets’ medical staff may have two very different reasons for encouraging Harvey to pitch sooner rather than later.

Sims: Sanchez Opting For Chance-It-And-See Approach With Shoulder

Sanchez might be wise to rethink things. If he goes under the knife now, he is certain to avoid the lengthy cross-his-fingers-period.

Sims: Decision On Elbow Looms Large For Mets’ Harvey

If Matt Harvey was an everyday guy pitching in a Central Park league and he opted to try conservative management after partially tearing his ulnar collateral ligament, we wouldn’t give it a second thought. But he’s not.

Sims: A Bruise? Were You Buying It?

After Mark Sanchez took a hard hit late in the Jets third pre-season game and landed on his right shoulder, initial reports were that he’d sustained a deep contusion, a bruise.

Was it the knee, hip or both that were at fault? Perhaps Davey Johnson simply faulted the left knee because he wasn’t aware of the left hip injury.

Sims: Don’t Expect Giants RB Andre Brown To Be Back Anytime Soon

Andre Brown, the Giants’ backup running back, was quoted as saying that because the leg fracture he sustained in Thursday night’s exhibition game is so small, he expects to be back on the field in two weeks. Don’t count on it.
