Jeremy Guthrie Lands on Disabled List After Freak Bicycle Accident

Jeremy Guthrie might want to reconsider how he gets to work.

Guthrie frequently rides a bike to and from the ballpark, but a freak accident has landed the Rockies pitcher on the 15-day disabled list.

Guthrie was riding his bike when the chain broke, slamming him to the ground, according to The Denver Post. He'll now be forced to miss at least a couple of starts as he recovers from the injuries he sustained in the fall.

"It was a kind of a freak accident. Most of the contact was on my elbow and it kind of jammed my shoulder," Guthrie said. "I just have some pain, and when that goes away, I would assume, yes, I will be healthy in 15 days. It wasn't like the wheel slipped out. I was just riding and the next thing I know I was on the ground."

An MRI revealed that Guthrie suffered no structural damage. Mentally, however, he may never recover.
