THIS IS A NEW INJURY TO ME
AND I'VE HEARD OFA LOT OF THEM IN SPORTS
So far in sports....we've had some classic injuries. Brewers pitcher Steve Sparks dislocated his shoulder trying to rip a phone book in half. Braden Looper injured his oblique sneezing. And Rickey Henderson once got frostbite...in the middle of August!
Well, here's a new one for you from Mariners pitcher Erik Bedard...and the headline says it all. Enjoy!
Bedard scratched from start due to sore butt
Ex-Oriole missed scheduled outing against Royals
PEORIA, Ariz. - Seattle Mariners left-hander Erik Bedard was scratched from his scheduled start against Kansas City on Wednesday because of a sore butt.
Bedard was on the disabled list from April 15-26 last year because of soreness and inflammation in his left hip. He didn't start after July 4 and had shoulder surgery Sept. 26.
"Right now we're not concerned because it's not in the hip joint; it's more in the muscle," manager Don Wakamatsu said Wednesday. "I think it's just really about being on the mound again. This is more muscle soreness. He had some stiffness in there about four days ago, and we thought it was best at this point to rest it a little bit. It might be a blessing to get his arm a little bit of a break, too."
Bedard is 1-0 this spring training and hasn't allowed a run in 4 2/3 innings.
