Dodgers pitcher Joe Kelly injured himself cooking Cajun food for his teammates.  The flamethrower spent five hours boiling crawfish and his back tightened up.

Via Los Angeles Times:

Kelly said he threw a Cajun fest for some of his teammates: chicken, red beans and rice, and crawfish. He said his back tightened up on him as he spent five hours minding the boiling crawfish.

“He was cooking some Cajun food,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. “I guess he was standing a little longer than he wanted to. That’s what he told me.

What a way to hurt yourself.  Kelly is a professional athlete, but can’t stand for five hours at a time.

Add this one to the list of bizarre baseball injuries.  Maybe next time order out or hire a chef.
