David Price Tampa Bay Rays injures himself toweling off 030812
We're only a week into spring training, and we might have just found the craziest injury of the year.
David Price has had an interesting offseason, to say the least. First, Price found a man urinating on his car, and now the Rays lefty reportedly has injured his neck with a towel while drying off between innings.
"I was just drying my head off in between innings,'' Price told the Tampa Bay Times. "It's happened to me two times before. The towel just catches the back of my head and it pulls my neck forward. I just felt it a little bit in back of my neck and just wanted to be cautious with it. ... It's spasms, there's a little pop and it just spasms up and gets a little tight.''
Rays skipper Joe Maddon had a few comments about the 26-year old pitcher and his hygienic habits.
"David might need better technique when it comes to toweling himself down,'' Maddon said. "He's been doing it for 20-some years now, but apparently doesn't have it down yet."
