Abstract

  Isolated acute injuries of scapulohumeral muscles are relatively rare in sports compared with general muscle injuries or compared with throwing-related disorders in shoulders. We had two retrospective cases of an isolated acute muscle injury to the subscapularis muscle developed in the pitching motion and to the infraspinatus muscle developed in the batting motion in professional baseball players during regular season games. Both cases were conservatively treated and successfully returned to play at their previous activity levels. We proposed that isolated acute injuries of rotator cuff muscles are relatively specific to professional baseball players, since there are few reports in non-professional players or in athletes in other kinds of sports.
