Rotator Cuff Injuries are a Common Baseball Injury

Original Publish Date
September 6, 2021

Rotator cuff tears are a common baseball injury, especially for pitchers. Your rotator cuff keeps your arm in its socket. It’s made up of a group of four muscles that combine as a tendon to help rotate and move your arm. This is why pitchers often fall victim to this injury.

TWO TYPES OF TEARS:

A tear happens when one or more of your tendons tears and becomes either fully or partially detached from the upper arm bone, called the humerus. The injury usually starts with tendon frays and takes an expeditious movement, like a fastball pitch, to result in an actual tear. While supraspinatus tears are the most common, other parts of your rotator cuff may be involved.
