Aside from Jake Peavy cutting his finger with a fishing knife, this has been a pretty slow spring for freak injuries. Don't get me wrong, I'm not rooting for anyone to get hurt, but there are always a handful of weird injuries in camp each year and most are minor enough that we can laugh.

K-Rod is expected to return to the mound in a few days. He's a veteran reliever, he only needs a handful of innings in camp to prepare for the season anyway.
