The Texas Rangers have been suffering injuries at an alarming rate the last two seasons, which has led to an examination of their medical and training procedures.
Texas endured a 95-loss season in 2014 amid numerous injuries. They have already placed 10 players on the DL this season, which is just 13 games old.
"If you go down the list of problems that we had last year that put people on the disabled list, it's not like we can say, 'What do we need to do?'" said Dr. Keith Meister, the team's head physician. "Believe me, it tears us all up, and we're all introspective and trying to evaluate and do things better on a higher level all the time."
The one thing that gives the Rangers confidence that they aren't training improperly or treating injuries incorrectly is that most injuries have been either freak in nature or ones that aren't common to ballplayers.
