Spencer Torkelson and Ridiculous Baseball Injuries

Carlos Correa and the Massage
Carlos Correa is one of the better shortstops in baseball, and he’s certainly a player Tigers fans would like to target in free agency next year. But the 26-year-old is no stranger to the trainer’s table, and none of his injuries have been more absurd than the time he fractured a rib getting a massage.
Correa was hitting .295 with 11 home runs through 50 games at the time of his injury, and he went on to miss exactly two months of action. He was very good when he returned, but injuries crept up again and he finished with just 75 games on the year. Fortunately for Correa he has been mostly healthy since, and he was once again excellent for the Houston Astros in the postseason last year. Perhaps he’s given up on the daily massages.
