Ian Snell vs Chicken Caesar Salad

Blister forces Snell to skip start
Pitcher burned right index finger while grilling dinner
By Jenifer Langosch / MLB.com

PITTSBURGH -- Only days after feeling on top of the world after pitching his first Major League complete game, Ian Snell walked around the clubhouse on Sunday disgusted that he would have to miss his scheduled start on Tuesday due to a blister on his right index finger.

"It's a burn blister," Snell finally said after trying to ignore questions about his hand.

Snell burned his finger while grilling chicken for a salad he was preparing for himself. And as if the blister wasn't bothersome enough, Snell was also mad that the costly chicken Caesar salad wasn't even worth the hassle.

"It wasn't one of the best ones," said the Pittsburgh right-hander, rolling his eyes.

Snell insisted that he felt that he would be ready to make the start on Tuesday, but the Pirates didn't want to take any chances, deciding to skip his spot in the rotation. With their off-day on Monday, the Pirates can move the rest of their rotation up a day without having to pitch anyone on short rest or call up an emergency starter from the Minors.

Tom Gorzelanny, who pitched for Pittsburgh last Thursday, will make the start against the Mariners in the series opener in Seattle on Tuesday. Snell will make his next start on Saturday against the Los Angeles Angels.

The blister comes only days after Snell pitched one of the most dominant games of his big-league career, a complete game in which he allowed one unearned run and struck out seven. Snell has been downright dominant lately, allowing only three earned runs in his last 24 innings, while lowering his ERA to 2.63, the fifth-lowest ERA in the league.

That's gotta be the best injury since Clint Barmes fell carrying a bag of deer meat up some stairs the other season. Good thing for Snell owners it's not long term like Barmes injury was.
