Is this is the dumbest injury of all time?
Zack Wheeler won’t make his scheduled Saturday start, because, get this –
He injured his finger putting on his pants:
Zack Wheeler has a problem with the nail on his middle finger. He caught his nail putting on pants. "Can't make this up," Joe Girardi said. He won't pitch until Monday at earliest.

Did he get caught in the zipper? Did his hand slip? We need to know.
The Phils play a doubleheader today, so it will be Aaron Nola in game one and then a bullpen game, so chalk that second one up as a loss. Spencer Howard will now pitch Saturday and then we’re blessed with a Zach Eflin/Vince Velasquez doubleheader on Sunday.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Zack Wheeler, who, on a serious note, has been really good this year.
