BRlogoAs a long-time fan and user of baseball-reference.com, I marvel at how the site keeps growing and growing. Not only is there the latest generation of statistics, but BR has expanded to include minor league, Negro league, and foreign (especially Japanese) data. Not to mention the “Baseball Frivolities and Fun Stuff” section which includes:

The only thing missing — and I’m wondering when someone will take this under their purview — is disabled list information, which has been a morbid fascination of mine: how a player is injured, how much time he has missed, etc. The dates for DL stints are found in Who’s Who in Baseball, but not the nature of the injury that landed the players there.

I was thinking about reaching out to BR head Sean Forman, but Beyond the Box Score beat me to it.
