Vicente Padilla shot in the leg

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
Vicente Padilla's offseason is off to a rocky start.

The Los Angeles Dodgers right-hander was accidentally shot in the leg while at a Nicaraguan shooting range.

Originally, it looked like the wound was self-inflicted, but the current report indicates that Padilla's bodyguard may have fired the shot.

In other news, sending Spanish-language articles though Google's translator is a lot of fun, but not conducive to full understanding.

Padilla, an 11-year veteran, has a 98-85 career record and finished the 2009 campaign with the Dodgers after beginning the year with the Texas Rangers. He went 1-1 in three postseason starts.
