Overall rate of return to play high among MLB players after ACL reconstruction
July 7, 2015

Although there was a decline in the number of games played postoperatively, Major League Baseball players who underwent ACL reconstruction had an 88% overall rate of return to play, according to study results.

Researchers compiled ACL injury data from 1999 to 2012, as well as player performance statistics recorded for players with at least 30 games before ACL injury. Side of injury was included as a predictor variable, whereas batting average, stolen bases, and number of times caught stealing before injury and after surgery were the outcome variables.
