This must be the week for crazy baseball injuries. From AP-
CHICAGO — American League home run leader Carlos Quentin has a broken right wrist stemming from his own temper, and the Chicago White Sox left fielder will have surgery Monday that could sideline him for the rest of the season.
Quentin was injured Monday night in Cleveland. After fouling off a pitch while batting against Cliff Lee, Quentin hit his right hand on the bat as he was holding it with his left.
“What did happen was kind of unfortunate. It’s kind of something that, you know, I still have trouble believing that it happened that way,” Quentin said Friday.
“My last at-bat, the second pitch I fouled off against Lee. Something I’ve done thousands of times since I was a kid. A little frustrated. I had the bat in my left hand and I just kind of hit down on the bat head with my right hand with a closed fist. I kind of hit a little bit low, nicked my wrist and finished the at-bat.
Only a few days ago, LA Angel pitcher Jered Weaver cut his pitching fingers on the dugout bench. Weaver will miss one start, but Quentin is likely to be out the rest of 2008. That will definitely impact the White Sox and this year’s pennant races.
