Bathroom break - Rays' Snell fractures toe, on IL
Reigning AL Cy Young victor Blake Snell is headed onto the 10-day injured list with a fractured toe, the club announced . Snell has been excellent thus far in 2019, turning in 25 innings of 2.16 ERA ball after inking an extension in camp.

The manager tried to talk to Teeter who pulled the reptile from beneath his shirt.

"The suspect's iguana, whom we have affectionately named Copper, was seized by the officers", the police force said in a statement.

It's unclear as to what led the suspect to tossing the lizard at the manager. Teeter picked up Copper by the tail and walked out of the restaurant. Several cars swerved to avoid hitting him. He struggled with law enforcement in the street before he was handcuffed. The animal was taken to the Lake County Humane Society where it will be checked for injuries. Caretakers noted that she is missing part of her tail.
