Travis Wood left with mangled finger after crossbow accident

When pitchers and catchers arrived at spring training this week, Wood revealed to reporters that he suffered a nasty finger injury in a crossbow accident about a month ago. As Chris McCosky of the Detroit News notes, Wood said his right index finger (fortunately his non-throwing hand) was nearly snapped in two.
