Like death and taxes, bizarre baseball injuries in spring training are guaranteed to occur. For a list of some of the weirdest injuries thus far, see here.
On Monday, Detroit Tigers shortstop Jhonny Peralta entered his name in the running for most outrageous injury.
The 30-year-old Peralta was scratched from the lineup for the Tigers' game against the New York Mets after suffering an allergic reaction to clam chowder.
"[Peralta] ate some clam chowder and he's allergic to it," Detroit skipper Jim Leyland said after the game. "He didn't realize it was clam chowder until he ate it."
Safe to say Peralta won't be signing with the Boston Red Sox anytime soon.
