We’ve all heard it about Milton Bradley: He’s an injury waiting to happen. Maybe that’s true.

Thanks to our good friend, Andy, at Sons of Ivy, here’s a complete year-by-year breakdown of his injuries and time missed (note this is more accurate than the previous list that had been floating around the Cublogoverse, which doubled and sometimes quadrupled his injuries).

See it after the jump.

So…. yeah. That’s a lot. And the simultaneously alarming and relieving thing about it is that it is a myriad of injuries. It’s not as if he has chronic back problems (that’s good), but damn he’s fragile (that’s bad).
