Unum will be the sole sponsor of the Injury Report segments during ESPN Major League Baseball programming this year.

The Injury Report segments will update ESPN television network viewers and radio network listeners about which players are hurt, the nature of their injuries and their expected return dates, according to Unum, Chattanooga, Tenn.

Unum says it hopes to use the Injury Report segment sponsorship to increase awareness of disability and of the need for protecting income against disability.
