Top Injuries in Franchise History

The Orioles have been very bad over the last few decades, and while the names are not the most notable, they have had some bad luck. David Segui had one and off injuries, breaking his thumb in 2003 Spring Training. He had some odd injuries like cuts on his hand, and then eventually sprained his MCL. Luis Matos was a part of those teams, tearing a shoulder ligament and missing the rest of the 2001 season. Jim Johnson had a few good seasons of being the Baltimore, and in his right elbow injury in 2010 was when things started to go downhill. He was never quite the same.

Jake Arrieta had struggled with Baltimore before breaking out with Chicago a few years later. Arrieta had to have a surgery at the end of the 2011 season, to repair a bone spur in his elbow. Zach Britton had started to develop some shoulder trouble, which caused him to go to the 60-day DL. Later in the 2013 season, Manny Machado had torn ligaments in his left knee, which had him miss the remaining part of the season. Machado would start the next season dealing with recovery, but eventually made a full recovery after his second surgery later on in 2014.

Baltimore tried to squeeze out whatever was left of Johan Santana in his career, which wasn’t much. He had shoulder surgery in the middle of 2014, missing the rest of the season, and failed to make another ten starts in his career. Tommy John surgery has been a thing over the last decade with catchers, and Matt Wieters was a part of it. Wieters missed the 2015 season with Tommy John, which had an impact on his career in Baltimore. Jonathan Schoop is a more recent major injury, tearing a ligament in his knee during the 2015 season. He missed the rest of the season, but has made a full recovery.

Zach Britton had arm issues pop up again in 2017 where he missed the season due to a strained left forearm. He then had to have surgery on his right Achilles. A lot of the more recent stars in Baltimore are gone, and Mark Trumbo’s knee surgery was the bigger name. After a monster year, Trumbo has dealt with nagging injuries that has kept his power in check.
