The median number of days was  6 days per injury.
The average number of injured days was just under 9.

Tampa was the healthiest with only 30 games missed.
Oakland had almost eight times more injury days compared to the Rays. The A's piled up 230 days.

Boston & Oakland had the highest averages at 12.6 & 12.1 respectively
Washington had the lowest average at 5.5 days. The Giants and Dodgers were the only other teams with average days per injury under 6.0.

The Red Sox had two of the three longest injury stints. Seth Smith had a 51 game injury while Kelvin Herrera missed 39 games.

The highest number of injures for any single player was four. Five players were injured four times. The highest # of total games missed among those five is Jorge Polonco who missed 40 games. Yu Darvish was next with 35 games missed.

As was recently discussed, due to our schedule, if a player was put on the DL, it's likely his actual games missed was higher than what is listed in the data. If a player has a 6 game injury and he is placed on the DL, he could actually miss up to 20 games.

Note: Injuries where the player was injured only for the current game were not counted.
