Tampa Bay Rays' David Price Pitcher Hurt After Toweling Off Too Vigorously

"If nothing else, Rays pitcher David Price might have cleaned up in the race for oddest injury of the spring.

Price was forced to leave Thursday's game with a neck spasm after toweling himself off too vigorously.

Seriously.

Call it over-toweling.

Price claimed he was simply drying his head in the dugout after his second inning against the Tigers and, well, let's just let him tell it.

"The towel just catches the back of my head, and it pulls my neck forward," he said. "I just felt it a little bit in back of my neck and just wanted to be cautious with it.

"There's a little pop, and it just spasms up and gets a little tight."

Amazingly, Price said this has happened to him twice before — last spring and in September — and it usually takes 2-3 days to work itself out."
