‘Can’t make it up’: Wheeler injured by pants

Add Zack Wheeler to the long list of weird baseball injuries.

The Phillies right-hander hurt a fingernail on his pitching hand … while putting on pants.

“Can’t make this up,” Phillies manager Joe Girardi said of Wheeler’s injury.

Wheeler’s sore nail forced Philadelphia to push his scheduled start Saturday back at least two days, to Monday, at the earliest.

The 30-year-old is off to a great start in his debut season with the Phillies, who signed Wheeler to a five-year, $118 million deal as a free agent in the offseason. Wheeler is 4-0 with a 2.47 ERA and 36 strikeouts in 51 innings over eight starts.
