Ouch! The DL List Grows and Grows.

Every year about this time I look at the number of players on the DL and wonder if injuries are up from the previous year. I have no data to prove this, it’s just a hunch.

This year is no exception. Right about this time, just like clock-work, key players are dropping like flies.

A sampling of stars, key players and prospects who are now on the DL:

O. Hernandez SP Shoulder 15-day DL
M. Ordonez RF Hernia 15-day DL
V. Guerrero RF Shoulder 15-day DL
F. Rodriguez RP Arm 15-day DL
N. Swisher CF Shoulder 15-day DL
B. Crosby SS Ribs 15-day DL
B. Madritsch SP Shoulder 60-day DL
C. Koskie 3B Hand Late June
K. Wood SP Shoulder Mid June
N. Garciaparra SS Groin 15-day DL
T. Walker 2B Knee 15-day DL
J. Valentin 3B Knee Mid Aug
M. Loretta 2B Hand Late July
S. Rolen 3B Shoulder Late June

Update: Add Roger Clemens to this list. He left today’s game with a groin injury. Fortunately for him and the Astros, it’s not too serious and it’s possible he might not miss a start.
