Aroldis Chapman Placed On Injured List For Unique Reason

New York Yankees pitcher Aroldis Chapman has been placed on the 15-day injured list for a very unique reason. The veteran reliever has a leg infection due to getting a tattoo.

This is certainly an unfortunate event but also one you don't often see in sports. Nevertheless, even with this being so, Chapman will now have to miss the next two weeks at least due to this freaky accident.

In 36 games this season, Chapman sports a 2-3 record, 4.70 ERA, and nine saves.
