Among the theatrics in Tuesday's game between the Orioles and the Blue Jays was a play later on in the game, after all of the home run shenanigans, where Jose Bautista attempted to throw out Delmon Young at first base on a relatively routine base hit to right field.
Bautista came in hard on the ball and fired a throw to first base, not in time to retire Young. That action prompted Young to say his piece on the night's activity: "You're not that good!" In Young's eyes, this throw was little more than Bautista trying to show what a badass he is, and Young seemed bemused by the attempt.
As it turns out, there was a consequence to this action. Bautista is not in the Blue Jays lineup for Wednesday night and, according to Jeff Blair of sportsnet.ca, he suffered a strained shoulder as a result of this throw. Bautista was reportedly unable to throw a baseball at all today and he could now be a candidate to go on the disabled list.
Jays manager John Gibbons said he was going to give Bautista the day off anyway due to a 2-29 career mark against O's starter Ubaldo Jimenez. Now it seems Bautista is going to miss more time than just that.
I believe that is a prime case of what you might call a self-inflicted injury.
