Top Injuries in Franchise History

Tyler Thornburg - Boston had bullpen issues all season long and then things clicked in the postseason. Boston could be dealing with some openings in the bullpen this upcoming season, and Tyler Thornburg was brought into be a primary setup guy. Thornburg has been injured most of his stint in Boston, and it is hard to expect anything other wise for 2019. Boston will be prepared for Thornburg to miss any time, but if he can come back and show what he was in Milwaukee, then he will fill in nicely.

Top Injuries in Franchise History

Boston has had a rich history, and have dealt with some major injuries. One of the most historic injuries was Tony Conigliaro being hit in the face by a pitch, which caused the end of his career. His magazine cover with the black eye is one of the more historic front pages due to an injury given his potential. Jon Lester is a great sports story, beating cancer, and recovering after the 2007 season. Boston had Curt Schilling towards the end of his career, and of course the bloody sock is one of the more notable moments in Sox history, but he started to see degeneration in his right bicep tendon in 2008, which was after the World Series.

Dustin Pedroia could have his own section, with a series of unfortunate injuries. Things started in 2010, where Pedroia broke his left foot. This was in the midst of a tough stretch, as Victor Martinez and Jason Varitek both suffered none fractures moving them to the DL. Kevin Youkilis also missed the rest of that 2010 season, tearing a muscle in his thumb. At the end of the year, Ellsbury and Youkilis were both season enders. Daisuke Matsuzaka had shoulder issues for most of his career, and he also battled elbow trouble. Matsuzaka made several longer trips to the DL. He eventually had Tommy John surgery in 2012.

Carl Crawford didn’t have a long stint in Boston, and ended up needing Tommy John surgery shortly after he got to Boston. It didn’t stop Boston from trading him to Los Angeles. Clay Buchholz rarely pitched a full season, and had various injuries. When healthy Buchholz flashed a lot of potential, but consistency was eventually one of the reasons why he faded away. Pedroia continues to battle knee issues, and missed the entire 2018 season. It will be a surprise if he comes back and starts over 100 games ever again. Carson Smith and Tyler Thornburg were expected to be strong bullpen additions, but both have hardly pitched in Boston due to injuries.
