An Epidemic of Arm Injuries from Little League to Major League Baseball

Miami Marlins pitcher Jose Fernandez had a great rookie season last year and that might be an understatement.

The Cuban athlete was selected for the National League All-Star team, won the NL Rookie of the Year Award, and struck out almost 200 hitters, but this season hasn’t gone as planned for the 22 year-old.

Fernandez suffered an arm injury in early May that needed Tommy John surgery, and he won’t pitch again until next season.

The Mets swept the Yankees for the first time that the sixteen year-series has been played, and it was only the fourth time they won the season series. Contained within those four games was the first blown save in 2013 for the great Mariano Rivera (the first time he failed to record an out in his storied career), a 9-4 blowout much needed by a struggling offense, and four starters who pitched into the sixth inning or deeper.
