CHICAGO (AP) -Scott Podsednik went for an off-day workout hoping to keep his body free from injuries that have nagged him the last two years.
What he got instead was a strained right groin after his leg slipped and caught underneath his body while he was doing agility drills in the outfield.
``I was coming in to prevent this exact injury, that's the whole reason with coming in,'' Podsednik said Wednesday.
``It was clearly a freak thing the way it happened. It was just by coincidence it was the groin again.''
Podsednik, batting .303 with one homer, three RBIs and three stolen bases, was put on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday.
``It's very frustrating,'' he said. ``It's gotten beyond ridiculous. It really has. I don't know, I don't have the words to really describe what it's like to go through.''
Podsednik missed two weeks in 2005 with a strained left adductor and has had surgery to repair a sports hernia in each of the past two offseasons.
``My body was feeling great, my legs were feeling great, I finally felt like I got both of them underneath me to where I can go kind of play my game again,'' he said. ``Then boom, right when I start feeling that way, get that swagger back so to speak, something like this kind of knocks me down.''
