Detroit Tigers shortstop Jhonny Peralta was a late scratch from today’s exhibition game against the New York Mets for a very odd reason. He got his hands on some bad chowder.
Leyland on Peralta: "He ate some clam chowder and he's allergic to it. He didn't realize it was clam chowder until he ate it."— Jason Beck (@beckjason) March 11, 2013
So I guess Peralta was on the porcelain throne working out his issues when Jordany Valdespin took a baseball to the groin.
Only three more weeks of spring training, you guys. Hopefully more ridiculous shit happens.
