SoDo Mojo updates Mariners fans on the injuries around the American League West.
We are approaching the second complete month of the MLB season, so it’s only natural that some guys are feeling the wear and tear from playing a baseball game nearly every day. Some teams have escaped the injury bug without too much harm, and some teams are the Oakland Athletics.
Injuries are never fun and no matter what team you cheer for, it’s always a bad feeling to see teams lose guys they were counting on. In the entire American League, there is not a single team without an injury, for a total of 85 injured players in varying degrees of hurt. 85 people is enough for three whole baseball teams. There is never really a “normal” amount of people injured, but this season has seemed to churn out injuries in an alarmingly fashion.
I thought it would be helpful to go through the American League West and see the state of the teams that the Mariners share a division with.
