Increase in pitching injuries raises concerns among MLB

Published on

Multiple pitchers have been sidelined with injuries this spring. Lucas Giolito, Kodai Senga, Justin Verlander, Kevin Gausman and Sonny Gray are just some of the big names that have headed to the injury list. 

As recently as Monday, it was announced that Yankees ace Gerrit Cole will be undergoing an MRI on his throwing elbow. Though the extent of the injury has yet to be determined, manager Aaron Boone stated that Cole had a hard time “bouncing back between starts” during spring training.

Pitching injuries have steadily increased over the last decade. The increase has raised concerns for many around the league, and experts are struggling to pinpoint what the exact cause is.
