08:08 AM ET 01.25 | Carl Pavano's return to a major league lineup will likely have to wait. Pavano, 37, recently suffered a ruptured spleen that will sideline him for 6 to 8 weeks, according to major-league sources. The injury occurred when slipped and fell while shoveling snow on his driveway in Vermont, one source said. Pavano's agent, Dave Pepe, declined comment. The Colorado Rockies and New York Mets were among the teams that had shown interest in Pavano, sources said. Pavano did not pitch after June 1 last season due to a sore right shoulder that was caused by a bone bruise on his humerus, according to reports. He enjoyed a resurgence in the two seasons prior to that, winning 26 games and averaging 222 innings for the Twins.

I have a feeling that the headline today would then read "Pavano mangles (insert body part) in bizarre snow blower accident"

Is this guy the klutziest athlete or what?

How many games did the Dallas Cowboy player miss with the same issue? I know it wasn't that many, maybe 1 game?

My cousin ruptured her spleen when she fell off a horse and it stepped on her. This guy must be fragile.

The Guys coming off a $16 million contract (not to mention the $40 he milked the Yankees for).

You'd think he could hire someone (atleast to bolster the local economy)

Da Milking is Over, see Ya!

wiseup: aother fragile pitcher with a fragile brain to match. Spend a few hundred of your millions for a snowblower and hire some kids to do use it for you.

His driveway must be bordered by a ravine, or something.
