Ever wonder if Indians pitching prospects get hurt more than other teams' pitching prospects? Now, thanks to USS Mariner's Derek Zumsteg, you can find out. DMZ concludes his "Pitching Attrition" series by summarizing his findings and coming to several conclusions on why pitching injuries happen, who they happen to, and what can be done to prevent them.

The Indians rank towards the lower end of the spectrum as far as injuries to pitching prospects are concerned, but there have been a couple recent arm injuries to high-profile pitching prospects, most notably JD Martin. Adam Miller has also been sidelined with arm issues, though they as yet don't appear as serious as Martin's (he's having Tommy John surgery).

The summary and subsequent discussion is a great read. Go check it out.
