A look back at the original reporting and analysis found on MLBTR the last seven days:
- In a special piece for MLBTR, Bradley Woodrum looked into which players have increased likelihood of having to undergo Tommy John surgery. From Derick Velazquez in January to Lance Lynn in November, there were 112 ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) injuries requiring reconstructive surgery. Once a career-killer, UCL injuries have become a much more survivable injury, but they’re still obviously something to be avoided. We highly recommend that you read Woodrum’s in-depth article.
- In the latest edition of the MLBTR Mailbag, Steve Adams and Charlie Wilmoth were asked whether teams could organize a sign-and-trade deal involving a qualifying offer player. In addition to that, they touched on Khris Davis, Mark Melancon, Andrelton Simmons, Austin Jackson, and more.
