Brett Cecil scratched after blender accident

Perhaps it’s not quite as embarrassing as Jeremy Affeldt losing to some frozen hamburgers, but what it is with left-handers and kitchen accidents lately?

Brett Cecil was scratched from his scheduled start Friday night after suffering a cut on his left index finger while cleaning his blender.  Dustin McGowan will take his spot against the Yankees.

Incredibly enough, it’s Cecil’s second household accident of the year.  He was similarly injured while cutting chicken during spring training.

Fortunately, Cecil is expected to miss just the one start.  Less fortunate is that because the Blue Jays sent him down earlier this year, he won’t yet be arbitration eligible this winter, which means he’s probably still another year away from getting himself a maid.
