Boston Red Sox pitcher (and former Detroit Tigers pitcher), David Price, was just diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome. According to MLive.com, he was supposed to pitch for the Red Sox last night, but got scratched from the lineup and Rick Porcello (another former Tiger) pitched instead. They'll have Price throw today to test his arm and explore their options. There's some evidence that the injury may be due to not baseball, but playing the video game Fortnite too much. Even though the Red Sox say they don't think that's what caused it.

Price loves his gaming and last month told the Associated Press that Fortnite had “kind of taken over.” FYI - carpal tunnel syndrome is an injury usually caused by overuse of your wrist. Usually from spending a lot of time on a keyboard. Or game controller?

Here's a guy making about $30 million a year being taken out by a video game. Scary.

Here's the story.
