Outfielder Gustavo Cabrera, who the San Francisco Giants’ signed from last year’s international free-agent class, has sustained a horrific right wrist injury in the Dominican Republic.
The story, first reported by Ben Badler of Baseball America, with details added by Andrew Baggarly of CSNBayArea.com, has Cabrera cutting his wrist severely on broken glass, possibly in a slip-and-fall, possibly by putting it through a window. Badler reports that the injury was gruesome and nearly led to his right hand being severed.
Baggarly’s sources, however, say that Cabrera has had surgery and, since he is likely destined to play in a league that begins in mid-season next year, he should be ready to go as scheduled.
Still: pretty crazy.
