It hasn't even been a full day since we here at Baseball Nation reported on the first non-baseball-related injury of the spring, the Yankees' David Robertson hurting himself falling down stairs moving boxes -- and now, we have a second bizarre injury to add to that one.
Price said the reason he had the neck spasm that forced him to leave the game was that he toweled himself off too vigorously between innings.
"I was just drying my head off in between innings," he said. "It's happened to me two times before. The towel just catches the back of my head and it pulls my neck forward. I just felt it a little bit in back of my neck and just wanted to be cautious with it. ... It's spasms, there's a little pop and it just spasms up and gets a little tight."
What sort of world do we live in when baseball players can't towel themselves off vigorously? Topkin reports that Price says he expects to be fine in "two-three days" and he'll make his next start.
