Red Sox P Carson Smith suffered injury in ridiculous way

Carson Smith

It looks like we can add Carson Smith to the growing list of oddest baseball injuries.

The 28-year-old Boston Red Sox reliever was placed on the disabled list Tuesday with a right shoulder subluxation. How did he hurt his shoulder? He injured it throwing his glove in the dugout after leaving the game on Monday after he surrendered a home run.

Smith called the injury a freak accident and believes the injury came up because his shoulder is fatigued.

““I think my shoulder’s tired in general, it’s just from pitching. I’ve thrown a lot lately and I think my arm was just tired,” Smith said, via NBC Boston’s Evan Drellich.

Smith has already gone through Tommy John surgery before, so he knows just how difficult the injury recovery process can be. Smith has 18 strikeouts in 14.1 innings this season. His outing against Oakland aside, Smith had been quite reliable recently, so this no doubt hurts the team.

Smith now has a spot on our list of all-time weird sports injuries.
