5/15/23 : Working back from Injuries


The Clearwater Player Development Center is the hub for injured players working their way back towards eventual activation. The majority of players who incur injuries do their rehabilitation work with what many acclaim to be one of the best medical and training (strength & conditioning & mental performance) staffs in baseball located at the complex.


It’s a tedious and elongated task, those on the shorter term injured lists (IL) for example are more often than not on it longer than the minimum number of days.  The long term 60 day IL again is a minimum term however players placed on it always seemingly spend more than 60 days in their injury recovery process.


While we don’t always see them in our excursions to the complex as their rehab schedules are individualized and thus report times are staggered never the less we often cross paths.


Here’s a look at the current list of injured players working at the complex to get back to good health.  Each player is in various stages of their recover, it’s not my place to comment on what stages they are in, will leave that up to the organization.  However, I have listed the baseball activities that I’m aware of  that they are presently engaged in, they also do daily tissue prep, dynamic warm ups, strength and conditioning and specific rehab work with the medical and training staff dependent on their injuries.  Don’t forget about these fellas as there is plenty of talent on the comeback trail which will have impact at various levels before the season concludes.
