BBQ Too Hot to Handle for Seixal
Sunday, December 24th, 2034
Voodoo starting pitcher Quintiliano Seixal required medical attention yesterday after severely burning himself while barbecuing at his home. Seixal suffered first and second degree burns when a flame from the grill he was using suddenly shot up his right arm. "It was a pretty scary scene," said teammate Guillermo Coss, who was with Seixal when the accident occurred. "I thought it was going to totally engulf him for a moment." The fire also singed Quintiliano Seixal's hair and eyebrows, but luckily failed to ignite the shirt he was wearing at the time. "It honestly could have been much worse," said Coss. The injury will reportedly keep Seixal out of action for anywhere from 3 weeks up to a month, but doctors expect the burns to fully heal.
