Just last month, former MLB player Jose Canseco shot off his finger while cleaning his gun and had it surgically reattached. Then, this week, the middle finger of the Cuban-born outfielder, who last played for the White Sox, fell off ... while he was playing poker.

In a series of tweets, Canseco, who in the past has been particularly vocal about his political beliefs on Twitter, shared that his finger fell off during a poker tournament Thursday.

Canseco wrote that his agent bought the rights to the video, but it does not appear to have been released yet and it is unclear if Canseco will ever let it loose.

As of the time of this posting, Canseco hadn't tweeted any more updates as to the condition of his finger.
