Mike Minor and his urethra had a rough winter

Feb 24, 2014, 1:30 PM EDT

Lots of pitchers are “behind” early in spring training because of offseason injuries, but Braves left-hander Mike Minor … well, you’ll see:

What is the rehab plan like for that, anyway?

    File that one under “Too much information.”

      “Too much”? Really? And here I thought it was too little! I have so many questions.

    Believe it or not, you can actually fracture your penis (NSFW photo at this link, even though it is Wikipedia):

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Penile_fracture

    And the cause?

    “It is caused by rapid blunt force to an erect penis, usually during vaginal intercourse or aggressive masturbation.”

    So which was it? Someone needs to get to the bottom of “Penisgate.”

      File that one under “TMI” also.

      According to Dennis Rodman, this has happened to him. He really was as bas as he wanted to be.

      “So which was it? Someone needs to get to the bottom of “Penisgate.””

      And then back to the tip…and so on and so forth…

    Good thing this injury didn’t occur to the Boston closer or I would be really confused.

    What a pisser.

    And here I had just gotten over the news of George Brett’s hemorrhoids.

    Craig’s on it.

    How did I know that Aaron would be the one that posted this story? I immediately thought TMI when I say the tweet from Bowman. Props to Minor for not killing him for doing it.

    He was doing it wrong …

    Can you get scarring around your urethra from a HBPiD?

    Historio might know, but you’d never understand the answer due to all the giggling.

      Where’s Jordany Valdespin when you need him?

  11. ken14andersonforhof - Feb 24, 2014 at 5:09 PM

    OOOOOOOOOOUCH……Pack it in Ice and ace wrap it???

    Whatever happened to HIPAA? Per Wikipedia, urethral scarring may lead to a stricture, making it painful or difficult to urinate. What can cause the scarring? “[E]ither injury-related trauma to the tract or by a viral or bacterial infection of the tract, often caused by certain sexually transmitted infections”.

    Sounds like Mikey Minor got a nasty case of the clap.

  14. cmtill14 - Feb 24, 2014 at 9:21 PM

    Things I never think I’ll see on a baseball blog.

    1) Urethra
    2) A-Rod was a clean player.

    Well, I can scratch off the first one.

    • cmtill14 - Feb 24, 2014 at 9:22 PM

      Thought*

  15. toodrunktotastethischicken - Feb 24, 2014 at 11:16 PM

    Maybe R.A. Dickey or Chien Ming Wang have an idea!

    I think I will have to quote a line from that immortal football movie Johnny B Good

    Johnny-”Coach, I think I broke my d***”
    Coach-”Rub some dirt on it and get back in the game”
