This might be the weirdest sports injury in recent memory.
On Wednesday, it was announced that Carlos Correa would miss the next 4-6 weeks of action due to broken ribs.
If that wasn’t already bad enough, the Astros shortstop later released a statement that targeted a massage at his home for giving him those broken ribs.
“I’m extremely disappointed about not being on the field with my teammates. I sustained the rib fracture during a massage at my home on Tuesday. To sustain an injury in such an unusual way makes it even more frustrating. However, I will work hard to get back on the field as quickly as possible to help our team achieve our goal of winning another championship.”
Correa was removed from Tuesday’s lineup against the Chicago Cubs because of soreness .
Astros manager AJ Hinch gave his statement about the situation:
I guess Thor was in his home providing that massage.
