“If it’s the elbow, call the surgeon. If it’s the shoulder, call the preacher” (baseball adage)

Baseball pitchers frequently have injuries to a pitching arm. “If it’s the elbow, call the surgeon. If it’s the shoulder, call the preacher” is a baseball adage.
 
“If it’s the elbow call a doctor but if it’s the shoulder call a preacher” was posted on Twitter by Ruben on September 15, 2018. “There is a reason behind the old saying that for pitchers ‘If it’s the elbow, call the surgeon. If it’s the shoulder, call the preacher’” was posted on Twins Daily on May 27, 2019. It’s not known who originated the saying.

There is a reason behind the old saying that for pitchers “If it’s the elbow, call the surgeon. If it’s the shoulder, call the preacher.”
