Just moments after signing with the Cleveland Indians, Carl Pavano has sustained yet another season-ending injury. According to reports, the righty became the victim of a nasty paper cut while handing the contract over to his agent after signing it. The cut, which is on his glove hand, won’t require surgery (or a Band-Aid), but will keep him off the mound in 2009.
After being treated at a local medical facility, Pavano told reporters that he has no plans on refunding the $1.5 million he will get from the Indians this year. “Why should I give it back? I took much more than that from the Yankees, and I only gave them nine wins over four years.”
