Last week I detailed the bone injury of MVP candidate Bryce Harper. Less than a week later, another hard-hitting All Star has landed on the disabled list after Sano was diagnosed with a stress reaction in his left shin. The shin is the surface of the lower leg bone known as the tibia. This area is easily injured due to its lack of natural protection. Specifically, a stress reaction is a bone injury that is often a precursor to a true stress fracture. Stress reactions generally present with localized pain and swelling around the area of concern. They most frequently develop when a repetitive or strenuous motion overloads an area, and the bodyís natural remodeling process is unable to keep up with these demands. However, Sanoís injury appears to have occurred after he fouled a ball of the area. As a result, Sanoís injury is likely similar to Harperís bone contusion.
