Reds medical staff recognized
The Reds medical team has been recognized for a good season. Check out this release I received from Will Carroll, a reporter that covers injuries in all sports. His Twitter handle is @injuryexpert.
Rotowire is proud to announce the winner of the 2012 Martin-Monahan Award for Best Medical Staff is the Cincinnati Reds. The Reds, under the direction of Paul Lessard and Dr. Tim Kremchek, have seen a significant reduction in days lost to injury, salary lost to injury, and have contributed to the Reds team that has won the NL Central two of the last three years.
The Martin-Monahan Award is named for longtime Twins Athletic Trainer Dick Martin and this year, we have added the name of longtime Yankees trainer Gene Monahan to the award as well. These two men symbolize the ideal of all medical staffs – hardworking, loyal to their teams, and at the pinnacle of their profession. The award is selected based on statistics monitored by Will Carroll and given in conjunction with Rotowire.com, the leading site for player news and analysis.
An article detailing the award will be posted Friday afternoon at Rotowire.com. The award will be presented at the Winter Meetings in December.
