What’s often neglected in the success of a professional baseball player is that good health throughout one’s career is vital to being considered an elite player.
The Sports On Earth article here is an interesting one asking who are the most durable players in baseball now.
Some are great players on their way to a potential Hall of Fame career like Jose Altuve, Max Scherzer, and Jon Lester.
When it’s all said and done, investing in said players is a pretty safe bet especially those who already logged in several seasons performing at a consistently high level.
Other names may not make it but are also worth the mention such as Evan Longoria, Kyle Seager, and R.A. Dickey.
We can all agree though that the picture of good health and a Hall of Fame worthy career will always belong to the great Cal Ripken Jr.
