I’m pretty sure I have no clue what my spleen does, but Carl Pavano’s spleen? It’ll keep homeboy unemployed and on the sideline for the next six to eight weeks.

According to Ken Rosenthal, the free-agent pitcher recently suffered a ruptured spleen after, wait for it… slipping and falling while shoveling his driveway.

Yup, the injury prone righty can now add “shoveling” to the list of things he should avoid.  And, as luck would have it, “shoveling” is going to be the thing that makes teams avoid him.

The 37-year-old, who started just eleven games last season for the Minnesota Twins, was reportedly being looked at by both the New York Mets and Colorado Rockies.

A quick glance over at Baseball-Reference shows that Pavano has made more than $70 million throughout his big league career, so that begs the question: what was the guy doing out there clearing off his own driveway?
