Yankees' Arrodis Chapman infects Illinois with leg tattoo

Jack Baer

The New York Yankees will be off Arrodis Chapman for at least two weeks due to a classic, bizarre baseball injury.

Yankees coach Aaron Boone told reporters that Chapman was on the 15-day injured list Saturday with a tattooed leg infection, ESPN’s Marly Rivera reported. About an hour later, the move was officially announced with an explanation.

Chapman has not pitched since August. 19. Boone reportedly believed Chapman would play for the Yankees’ game against the Oakland A’s on Thursday, but the infection apparently worsened from there. Fortunately, Chapman, who is currently on antibiotics, is expected to return this season.

The tattoo in question is said to be a portrait of his sister.

The trip to Illinois is another tough break in a season full of them for Chapman, who currently owns every nine innings in 30 2/3 innings A 4.70 ERA and 10.7 strikeouts, both career lows. He lost a closer spot in May when he was placed at Illinois with Achilles tendonitis.

Chapman has struggled since recovering from an Achilles injury in early July, where he posted a 5.40 span.

It’s an odd injury for Chapman, but not particularly odd in the grand scheme of odd injuries the sport has seen. Here is a limited sample from the past decade or so:

  • Cut thumb on the knife for washing dishes

    was frightened by a bull and broke his elbow

  • Injured finger while wearing pants

  • Broken nose because barbell fell on nose

  • Broken finger while playing video game

  • Cut thumb after gripping wine glass hard

  • Fractured ankle after falling from horse

    Broken ribs during massage

  • Broken hand when taking off shirt

  • Cutting the pinky I am repairing the drone

    Sprained shoulder in SUV accident

    cut his hand with a knife while trying to separate a frozen burger patty

  • The suitcase fell on my hand and broke my hand

  • Cut the thumb while cutting the sandwich into “fancy triangles”
