Texas Rangers shortstop Elvis Andrus was scratched from spring training action on Thursday because of an injury. As we know, injuries that occur during spring training often have hilarious stories attached to them. Most of them seem to typically involve pitchers, but Andrus has made an exception.
Elvis apparently decided to get some new ink on his left arm recently. What does that have to do with anything? Well, it would appear that his new tattoo is the reason he is sitting out on Thursday.
Elvis Andrus not playing today for Rangers. New and elaborate tattoo caused “sensitivity” in left biceps.

Does it keep getting weirder and weirder or what? Skeptics might argue that some of this stuff is a lie, but who could make these stories up? We’ve had guys injure themselves while stopping for sandwiches and others break their arm while playing a prank on their children. And let’s not forget about this hilarious incident that left a mark on Gio Gonzalez’s forehead. Being scratched from the lineup because of a tattoo-related injury is nothing more than an average day at the park at this point.
