Zimmerman: 2014 disabled list information and so much more

From SABR member Jeff W. Zimmerman at The Hardball Times on December 19, 2014:

I have finally gotten around to compiling the 2014 disabled list data. Usually I get this information out in October, but instead I was driving to and watching this unique event I have never seen live in Kansas City called postseason baseball. Crazy stuff. Now I can get back to the boring stuff involving spreadsheets and SQL. Besides compiling the 2014 DL data, I have dived into some other topics I have wanted to look at for while, such as historic team values, injury rates for various injuries–especially to pitchers–and how certain injuries affect a player’s performance.

At times, the following information can seem like just that, information. I started off on a few tangents but limited the amount of research. One such tangent ended up as entire separate article to be seen in the future here at The Hardball Times. If I did everything I wanted/could have done, I would have ended up with a small book, so I had to draw the line somewhere.  I’m hoping people can find pieces of information to use to help explain the never-ending stories surrounding baseball.
