 KISSIMMEE, Fla. (AP) -Houston Astros right fielder Hunter Pence crashed through a sliding glass door in the bathroom of his spring training home, leaving him with multiple cuts that will sideline him for a week.
Pence spent the night in an emergency room after the Monday night accident. He arrived at camp Tuesday with a gash on his right index finger and a brace on his left knee.
``It's pretty silly that this kind of a freak accident happened,'' Pence said.
Pence said he was in a hot tub at the home where he's staying and got out to use the bathroom. He had left the door open, but didn't noticed that a friend had just closed it. He hit it with his shoulder, leg and head and it shattered.
``I just didn't see the door and jumped through it,'' he said. ``I have small cuts everywhere.''
The 24-year-old outfielder said the injuries weren't as bad as they looked.
``I didn't really think I'd go through a glass door,'' he said. ``I was actually lucky, because none of the glass got stuck in any of my wounds.''
Pence hit .322 with 69 RBIs and 30 doubles as a rookie in 2007. He finished third in NL Rookie of the Year voting, behind Ryan Braun and Troy Tulowitzki.
The Astros held their first full-squad workout Tuesday, but Pence couldn't even straighten his finger or his left leg.
Pence's teammates have already start ribbing him.
``Watch out,'' catcher Brad Ausmus said to Pence, ``there's a glass door over there.''
