On the long, long list of weird spring training injuries and maladies over the years, Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Joe Kelly recent cooking injury ranks near the top.
Kelly, who joined the Dodgers in December on a three-year, $25 million deal, missed a few days of work this week after he hurt his back during a marathon five-hour crawfish boil.
Dodgers manager Dave Roberts joked that he needs to keep Kelly away from his jambalaya. Kelly threw pitches on Friday, and is expected to return soon.
