From Rotoworld:

Mark Grace broke a toe when he stubbed it on a couch leg in the visitor's clubhouse in Cleveland Sunday, but he said he will wear a splint and still be able to play.

Ouch.




He's Rolie Polie Olie - and in his world of curves and curls, he's the swellest kid around.

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.

I asked Timothy Leary, but he couldn't help me either.

Juan Gonzales hurting his back tying his cleats still takes the cake.

Jayson Stark had a new slew of them this morning on ESPN radio.

One of the Yankees prospects (who, mind you, was already on the DL) was bitten in his backyard by a "pygmy rattler." And yes, Brian Cashman, did indeed say he was "snakebit."

His choice for dumbest injury this year was Marty Cordova (who was the guy sunburnt in the tanning bed).

A classic injury: Some team (maybe the Brewcrew) brought in a motivational speaker and was tore a phone book in half. Steve Sparks tried to repeat it and blew out his shoulder.

It wasn't Mark Whiten. It was his then-teammate with the Blue Jays, Glenallen Hill.

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. ;)

Let's not forget Whiten's four-homer game in 1993. At least he had one all-time great day.

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.''

Two more I heard the other day:

-- Troy Percival got his foot infected over the all-star break while fishing and hooking himself

-- Some pitcher (one of those either recently traded or rumored to be traded) got his elbow infected somehow while washing dishes and i think getting dw liquid in a wound.

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.
