In a recent interview Jenks said:
“I want this to be spread everywhere and known by everybody…..What they practiced at the hospital was unsafe and should not be done anywhere.”
Jenks had a brief, yet successful MLB career, collecting a 2005 World Series ring with the White Sox. Jenks career ended in 2011 after further injury issues, which it turned out were caused by Dr. Wood’s surgery.
