If you were getting tired of all the positive news on the gaggle of injured Major Leaguers, here’s something negative on the MiL front to balance things out.
As first reported by George King of The Post, 2012 1st round pick Ty Hensley will be out for 2-3 months after having surgery today to correct a bone impingement in his right hip. You might remember that Hensley was reported to have an abdominal strain earlier in spring camp, and according to Senior VP of Player Ops Mark Newman this was the cause.
The good news is that this injury has nothing to do with the shoulder abnormality that was discovered during Hensley’s pre-draft physical last year, and with Hensley likely ticketed for SS Staten Island or the GCL it may not have much of an effect on his ability to pitch this season. But it’s still disheartening to know that the injury bug isn’t done biting in the organization. Mike Eder will have more on this story later today.
