Travis Wood suffered a crossbow accident this offseason

Chris McCosky reports that Tigers pitcher Travis Wood had a pin inserted into his right index finger after an early-January bow-hunting accident.

And it was some accident: Wood got his hand caught as he was prepping a crossbow and said that it nearly snapped his right index finger in two. The good news is he’s a lefty. And, I suppose, it’s good that a stray bolt didn’t go flying and kill the family dog or something.

Wood will get his cast off tomorrow after which he should be free to go back and join the Protestant Union troops in the Thirty Years War or whatever it is people do with crossbows these days.

Myers was admitted to a local hospital and underwent a series of tests, but all came back normal and he feels fine today. The team believes it may have been a matter of Myers being dehydrated and that he should available to play in tomorrow night’s game against the Dodgers.
