San Diego Padres’ Logan Forsythe Dealing with Plantar Fasciitis

Logan Forsythe, infielder for the San Diego Padres, has been struggling with plantar fasciitis recently and has missed several days of spring training.

The foot is being evaluated and Forsythe will hopefully be able return to the field soon.

This is not the first time the infielder has suffered a foot problem. The baseball player had the sesamoid bone in his left foot surgically removed in 2007 and last spring he had the sesamoid bone in his right foot removed as well after suffering a stress fracture.

Plantar fasciitis is a common injury among baseball players. Other common baseball injuries include: Achilles tendinitis, shin splints, stress fractures, ankle sprains, and fractures.

If you play baseball, it is important to condition your entire body, including your feet and ankles, for the game. Always warm up and stretch appropriately before, during, and after playing.

Also, just practice. Practicing not only makes you better, but also builds up the muscles you need to play safely.

For more information on baseball and the feet, check out our page on buying the right shoes for baseball.
