Out of the top 200, 87 had been on the DL at least once this season. 50 of those were hitters, 37 were pitchers. That proportion actually corresponds to the ratio of 9 hitters to 7 pitchers.
Shallow and limited in sample size as it may be, it seems that hitters do not stay any healthier than pitchers.
