Will Smith suffered the first freak injury of the 2016 MLB season.
The Brewers reliever reportedly tore his LCL while taking off his shoe in the clubhouse, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
“I was standing on one leg, trying to take the shoe off and I pulled hard and it stayed on. My knee just went up and popped. It sucks.”
It remains to be seen whether Smith will need surgery for the injury, but it’s not looking promising as he was seen on crutches Saturday.
