The Wrist of Will Middlebrooks

I woke up yesterday to the [horrible news](http://joyofsox.blogspot.com/2012/08/globe-middlebrooks-has-broken-wrist.html) that [Will Middlebrooks had a broken wrist](http://www.overthemonster.com/2012/8/11/3235416/will-middlebrooks-has-a-broken-wrist). I guess it is a positive that [he will not need surgery on that wrist](http://blogs.providencejournal.com/sports/red-sox/2012/08/middlebrooks-shouldnt-need-surgery.html), but I am still apprehensive about any wrist injury and its effects on the long term health of a player (*see, e.g.,* Nomar Garciaparra.)
