Satoru Komiyama (New York Mets): Injured his right middle finger while attempting to open his garage door. He pinched the finger between the panels of the door.

Randy Keisler (New York Yankees): Missed six weeks after being bit by a rattlesnake at his home.
Marty Cordova (Baltimore Orioles): Burned his face in a tanning bed. He could not play because he was under doctor’s orders to stay out of the sun.
