Injury Report: Don't play with knives

Knives are dangerous, and can cut things.

Sometimes people have good ideas, sometimes people have great ideas, and sometimes people have horrific ideas that should never be thought of again. This week, Josh Naylor had a horrific idea. Before I explain what he did, here is a question for all of you pranksters out there: would it be funny if I played a joke on my friend that risked him being sliced/stabbed in the hand? If you answered yes, you should call Naylor immediately because he might advise you to reconsider.

This past week, in a prank gone wrong, Naylor sliced Stone Garrett's hand sending him to the disabled list. Michael Hill shared his thoughts on the incident:

"Naylor has a reputation of being a bit of a prankster, but this one obviously went a little too far. Obviously, he's torn up about it. This is a good friend, his roommate. They came into pro ball together, so they're good friends."

A little too far, Hill? A LITTLE TOO FAR? This may be the understatement of the millennia.

What a way to start off this week's injury report. As always, below you will find updates on the Miami Marlins' injury-related transactions and specific players' injury situations.

DL Transactions

  • Carter Capps - 60-day DL
  • Nefi Ogando - 15-day DL (May 9th)
  • Bryan Morris - 15-day DL (May 25th)

Nefi Ogando

Ogando was placed on the disabled list on May 9th with a fractured rib after colliding with Cesar Hernandez during a play at first base. He began throwing off flat ground on May 25th and should return in the next few weeks.

Derek Dietrich

Mere days after being hit in the head by a foul ball, Dietrich had another injury scare. Last week in the eighth inning against the Pittsburgh Pirates, he was hit by a pitch just above his left wrist. Dietrich was immediately taken to the clubhouse to be examined, and his wrist was x-rayed. It was determined that he simply had a bone bruise. Fortunately, the injury does not appear to be serious as he played two days later. Dietrich explained that while scary, he was excited that his hit-by-pitch sparked the game winning rally:

"The best part about it is we needed someone to get on base and we won the ball game. I wasn’t trying to get hit like that for sure. It kind of scared me because I had never been hit on the wrist like that. My arm went numb for a little bit. Everything came back ok and I won’t have to miss any time which is important."
