The other day it was revealed that Dallas Keuchel was recovering from a foot injury, which Keuchel told TMZ cameras was suffered during the celebration following the Astros’ World Series victory.
Seems he might’ve been pulling the paparazzi’s legs with that one. Jerry Crasnick of ESPN has the real poop:
A source familiar with the situation said that Keuchel was actually bothered by a case of plantar fasciitis during the final two months of the season. The Astros told media outlets on Sunday that Keuchel has been recovering from a minor foot sprain.
No matter who you believe, the injury is thought to be minor — he pitched with it, obviously, at least according to Crasnick’s sources — and he is expected to be ready for spring training.
Pour one out for those people who make the “most random baseball injuries” lists, who now have to remove Keuchel from their database.
