injury and DL...

Post by wcl » Fri May 04, 2018 10:08 am

Quick question: does an injured ballplayer come back sooner if you do not place him on the DL, where games are counted as opposed to days? Just a weird thought. Thanks. Billy

No. It's irrelevant whether they are placed on the DL or not. A player is injured for a certain number of days, the number of games played during that span is also irrelevant to his recovery.

As a rule of thumb, if the injury is less than 20 days, I consider the player "day to day" and don't bother to put him on the DL. That's why we use the Back-Up Lists and go three-deep, right?

More than 20 days I do put 'im on the DL and call up someone from the minors, then adjust my back-up lists for the personnel shifts. If I have time and the inclination, I might even pick up somebody off the waiver wire to fill the missing minor league spot and occasionally they turn into someone I want to keep by the time the injured player is ready to return.

ABE and it's mysterious ways....
