Balfour hurt in freak injury involving Hickey



Rays reliever Grant Balfour hurt (intercostal strain) as result of a freak injury, involving horseplay w/pitching coach Jim Hickey on field before Friday game.

Manager Joe Maddon called it "a freaky, fluky thing," said such on-field horseplay is common, won't be banned.
