Another addition to the “Dumb Injury Hall of Fame”.
A freak accident in the clubhouse during their 5-3 win over the St. Louis Cardinals on Tuesday night has knocked one the Milwaukee Brewers’ starters out of his next turn in the rotation.
Left-hander Chris Narveson was trying to fix some laces on his glove with a pair of scissors when his hand somehow slipped. He sliced the tip of his left thumb deeply enough that he had to have eight stitches, and left Busch Stadium with his digit bandaged and in a splint as a result.
“I was just fixing my glove,” Narveson said. “I guess the screw on the end of the thing between the scissors was sticking through the bolt a little bit, I had my thumb up there and ran it across. Next thing, I look down and I’ve got a freaking gash in my thumb. I was hoping it wasn’t that deep, but it ended up being deep, so they put a few stitches in there.”
Narveson, 8-6 with a 4.49 earned-run average on the season, was scheduled to start Friday’s series opener with the Pittsburgh Pirates at Miller Park. Now, the Brewers will have to evaluate their options, as Narveson is no longer an option.
The Cardinals didn’t escape the game unscathed, either (although a much more conventional injury):
