Josh Reddick injured his finger ordering room service
When it comes to odd baseball injuries — and there are many of them — this one certainly belongs at the top of the list.
Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Josh Reddick was out of the lineup for the team’s 18-9 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Monday so he could let his injured finger heal. And just how did the injury occur? When Reddick was ordering room service.
Josh Reddick hurt his finger when his hand got caught in a door last night while ordering room service. "This is rock bottom," he cracked.

Baseball players, man. Just put them in bubble wrap and only unwrap them when it’s time for the actual game.
Reddick’s injury was termed as a jammed middle finger. Dodgers reporter Andy McCullough speculates that Reddick may also get Tuesday’s game off with the Dodgers facing Giants southpaw Madison Bumgarner.
