Hey Check this out

Rob Neyer's story today included a link to an injury report site on Pitch F/X.

The site lists dates on/off the DL, and specifics about the injury (ex: For Ben Sheets, it has: On DL 7/15/07, off DL 8/29/07, 45 days, Right Hand Sprain (middle finger)). It also has injury history summary for the past 1, 3, and 5 years, and a body part list (number of times a specific part has been hurt enough to land the player on the DL). For example, again with Sheets, he's been on the DL 3x for his shoulder.

With all the discussions about whether or not the Cardinals should sign Sheets, I had wondered if teams kept a catalog of medical issues on potential free agents, and why that data wasn't readily available on the internet. Now it is.

This is cool.
