Phils' Pitcher Padilla breaks collarbone in auto accident.: He was en route to his hometown of Chinandega, Nicaragua from the capital of Managua when his driver fell asleep at the wheel. The driver ultimately died. In addition to his collarbone, Padilla broke a finger on his right hand and bruised his shoulder.

Shades of Carlos Quintana, except it was a Jeep, in Panama, he was a 1B, broke a leg and played for the Sox. Otherwise, eerily similar.

UPDATE: Now his agent is disputing the report. Have to wonder what's going on here.

Either way, I hope this doesn't affect his pitching in the long term since he is so promising. He owns the Braves, that's for sure.
