Elvis Andrus was scratched today because of a sensitive new tattoo

Haven’t seen such pained expression over a tattoo since Serafina Delle Rose.

The odd injury train keeps rolling on. Gerry Fraley of the Dallas Morning News reported earlier today that Texas Rangers shortstop Elvis Andrus was scratched from the lineup today because of a new tattoo that was apparently still very sensitive and creating some issues in regards to comfort.

Andrus posted a picture on Twitter of his newly-inked left arm last evening, featuring his deceased father along with some related imagery.

It’s some pretty nice work on the arm of the shortstop, regarded as one of the better defenders at his position in baseball despite never winning a Gold Glove award. It doesn’t look like the ink drops below his elbow, which is something that could require him to wear long sleeves on the diamond, so it shouldn’t be an issue once the season begins.

Bob Tufts, do you think this would be covered under the "too hung over or too sunburned to play" rule?

Surely there's someplace they could send that overly sensitive tattoo for counseling.

Here's the tattoo in question.

@#1-why did you link to an arm tatoo of Christopher Walken?

Geez from the headline I thought maybe he got a tattoo that reads TU ES MARICON or something.

I think that would be an insensitive new tattoo.

Even if it's sensitive, you still shouldn't scratch it until it's fully healed.

I'm surprised this sort of thing doesn't happen more often. I feel like I always hear about athletes getting new tattoos in the middle of their season and, IIRC, when you get a new tattoo you still keep it covered for a few days before you can expose it to light/the world/etc.

#6 That's a tattoo of the king!
