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.

Ok well I might as well tell you .I was playing in a poker tournament last night and my finger fell off .someone took a video of it.— Jose Canseco (@JoseCanseco)November 14, 2014
My finger should have been amputated from the beginning. It was very loose with no bone to connect it.it was also smelling really bad.— Jose Canseco (@JoseCanseco) November 14, 2014
Dammm I thought the guy was funny meaning kidding just saw the video .OMG— Jose Canseco (@JoseCanseco) November 14, 2014
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.
