Apparently it doesn’t even have to be baseball season for MLB players to keep piling up the bizarre injuries. Free agent starting pitcher Carl Pavano is the latest victim, and his injury is fairly serious. According to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports, the 37-year-old right-hander recently suffered an injury while shoveling snow outside of his home in Vermont. Pavano reportedly slipped and fell while he was shoveling off his driveway, causing him to rupture his spleen. He is expected to be sidelined for six to eight weeks. Take it from one who knows — shoveling snow ain’t no cakewalk. When I was growing up and my dad started to push 40, my mother was always on my case to make sure I was helping him clear the snow and that he wasn’t trying to do too much. This is why. On Tuesday, we learned that Francisco Liriano fractured his arm when he slipped and fell in his bathroom. Haven’t these MLB pitchers ever heard of slippery surfaces? In any event, Pavano will likely have to look to hire some kid for $10 an hour to clear the snow in front of his house for the remainder of the winter. Here’s hoping he has a speedy recovery and can still find work with some MLB team. The post Carl Pavano reportedly ruptured his spleen while shoveling snow appeared first on Larry Brown Sports.
