Help Needed: Hitters Who Played Through a 2019 Injury by Jeff Zimmerman October 1, 2019 While the 2019 season is still semi-fresh in everyone’s mind, I have one simple request. Which hitters played through an injury instead of going on the Injured List this past season? I’ve collected the players for the past couple of seasons (2017 and 2018). It’s time to compile the 2019 list even though the effects on a projection may be limited. Here are the players I have so far. Name: Injury (link) Nolan Arenado: Toe injury (link) Javier Báez: Bruised heal limited his production, (link) Cody Bellinger: Bum shoulder (link) David Bote: Broken toe (link) Khris Bryant: Knee issues (link) Lorenzo Cain: Not batting leadoff until wrist healthy (link) Matt Chapman: Ankle/knee issues (link) C.J. Cron: Thumb (link) Nelson Cruz: Wrist? (link) Khris Davis: Hip bothered him (link) Daniel Descalso: Ankle (link) Freddie Freeman: Bone spur in elbow (link) Keston Hiura: Hamstring (link) Rhys Hoskins: Hand (link) Aaron Judge: Oblique (link) Max Kepler: Knee (link) Ramón Laureano: Shin (link) Yadier Molina: Finger (link) Mike Moustakas: Fractured finger (link) Daniel Murphy: Finger (link) Brandon Nimmo: Neck (link) Marcell Ozuna: Shoulder not 100% (link) Tommy Pham: Hand (link) Roberto Pérez: Ankle (link) Gregory Polanco: Shoulder (link) Hunter Renfroe: Ankle and elbow (link) Anthony Rizzo: Sprained ankle (link) Justin Smoak: Quad (link) Domingo Santana: Inflamed elbow (link) Mike Trout: Foot (link) Trea Turner: Finger (link) Alex Verdugo: Back issues (link) Luke Voit: Hernia (link) Late adds Marwin Gonzalez (link) If anyone knows of anyone I missed, please say so in the comments with a link to the source. I not looking for guess but the player or his team saying he’s hurt. Thanks for the help.
