I mean should we call Buster Posey injury prone too. He missed most of 2011 season after he collided at home plate with Scott Cousins.
Injury prone player to me is someone like Jose Reyes and his hamstring issues.
Yes, I already mentioned they were freak injuries BUT I question his durability among many other things with him that I dont with Cano. Ellsbury is a MUCH bigger risk with a long term deal than Cano is
