Any guesses on how many calf injuries and "strains" Cal Ripken played through?

What's with these calf injuries? Haven't they heard of salt pills?

From Rotowire:

August 22, 2020
Texas manager Chris Woodward said Choo is dealing with a calf injury, T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Choo sat out a second straight game Friday with what was originally thought to be rest, but the manager spilled the beans. "Mainly a calf issue," Woodward said. "He's got some other issues he'd been playing through. We both feel it's best for him to heal up because if he keeps playing through it, something is going to give, and then we're going to lose him for the rest of the year." With Choo out of the lineup, Woodward has rotated others at the DH spot. Thursday it was Derek Dietrich and Friday it was Joey Gallo.

... Players simply do not believe owners who claim that the sport is not very profitable. They noticed when the Kansas City Royals sold for $1 billion last year after being purchased for $96 million in 2000. They noticed when the league got a significant revenue boost last weekend in its new deal with Turner Sports for a portion of postseason TV rights.

They also noticed when some owners initially refused to pay minor leaguers, or sought to cut their pay, during the pandemic. Some players, like David Price of the Los Angeles Dodgers and Shin-Soo Choo of the Texas Rangers, have been paying minor leaguers an extra monthly stipend out of their own pockets, a noble gesture that should be humiliating to owners.

Is he really going to steal ten bases as a 37-year-old?

Why not? He's only one year older.

Shin-Soo Choo (OF) TEX - Feb. 21

https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=737644

Choo (shoulder) isn't in the lineup for Friday's Cactus League opener versus the Royals.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Choo underwent surgery on his left shoulder in October, but there's been no indication his availability for spring training is in question. It's not overly surprising to see the veteran outfielder taking it easy to begin spring training, and he'll have plenty of chances to see game action in the coming days.
