From Peter Gammons' Notes Column (7/6/02):
Just when it seemed that the Diamondbacks would deal Erubiel Durazo for Weaver or some pitcher and let Mark Grace and Lyle Overbay play first base, this happened: As he watched the All-Star selection show, Gracie bolted across the clubhouse to congratulate Damian Miller and broke a toe when he rammed into a couch.

Because they were both hot prospects who never really realized their potential playing for almost every team in MLB? Were it not for the fact that Whiten was a switch-hitter, they would've been exactly the same. ;)

Here's another stupid injury:
(lifted from ESPN's "Around the Horn" for Wednesday)
OF Chuck Knoblauch missed the game after a freak accident Tuesday night. Knoblauch was making his way through the dugout in the ninth inning of Kansas City's 10-1 loss in Detroit when he was struck by Raul Ibanez's bat. ''I saw him standing there, but I didn't think he was going to swing the bat,'' Knoblauch said. ''I came up the steps, took a right and whap. Luckily, he caught me above the elbow, not right on it. I think I'm fine, but they are being cautious today.''

The pitcher in question was Dustin Hermanson of the Red Sox. He was recently activated from the DL after being on the DL for the whole season with a groin injury. He slipped and fell while washing the dishes in bare feet. He got a small cut on his elbow, it got infected and really swollen. They had to give him IV antibiotics and he has been returned to the DL.
Rick Reed hurt his finger closing a suitcase because he was overcompensating for a sore thumb he had. Huh?
Edit: Here's the update on Hermanson from Under the Knife. He made up the story about falling while washing the dishes because the infection came from a dirty needle from a painkiller injection. The story has not been corraborated yet, but this seems more likely than slipping on a wet floor while washing dishes.
