So apparently a Red Sox minor leaguer named Bryce Brentz shot himself in the leg ”while cleaning a handgun.”  Brentz played 5 games for AAA Pawtucket last year, and is considered to be the #6 prospect in Boston’s organization.  He was likely going to have an opportunity to participate in big league spring training, but will now miss out because of the large bullet hole through his leg.  Brentz is expected to be fine, and the injury is not career threatening.  He is currently in Fort Myers “recovering,” and hopes to be ready to play by the start of the season. Whether there is more to the story or not, there is one big part of it that I do not understand: The accident happened two weeks ago.  How is it possible it just became news today?
