Recently, Dustin Pedroia had a bit of a scare when he slipped on a wet second base while making a play.
He apparently turned an ankle and had a numbness in his foot.
He says he feels healthy and is suffering no effects from last year's foot injury, but a look at numbers suggest otherwise. His offensive numbers are below his average and it makes one wonder if it will have a long term effect on his playing.
Many careers have been altered by seemingly minor injuries. Others have been cut short or dampened by major injuries.
Hopefully, Dustin Pedroia won't join this list, but here are 14 players who were never the same after injuries.
