Bad Tattoo of the Week
Texas Rangers shortstop Elvis Andrus gets the nod for bad tattoo of the week. It’s not that Andrus’ tattoo, an eternal shout out to his late father, is so bad but it’s effect on his playing status certainly has people shaking their heads. The All Star shortstop missed the Rangers spring training game yesterday against the Cleveland Indians due to sensitivity in his biceps area caused by the needlework. I’d love to see some video of Ol’ “Uncle Ron” Washington getting the news that his shortstop couldn’t play due to his new tattoo.
"Whatchu talkin’ ‘bout Elvis!"
Andrus may want to remember that his backup, Jurickson Profar, is baseball’s top prospect before he heads out for any more body art. Andrus’ tattoo mishap comes just weeks after Tampa Rays pitcher Joel Peralta suffered a neck injury while ordering a drive-thru sandwich. Ahhhhh, welcome back baseball.
