Former baseball slugger Jose Canseco is known for shooting off his mouth. On Tuesday he accidentally shot himself through a finger on his left hand while cleaning a gun.
Never one to pass up a chance to promote himself, the bedridden Canseco tweeted a photo of the injured hand on Wednesday presumably using one of his good digits.
"Hope I can keep my finger but grateful it wasn't something worse," he tweeted.

Canseco returned to his Las Vegas home where the shooting took place. Police say he was wounded while he was cleaning his semiautomatic handgun and it accidentally fired.

While reattaching the finger is still questionable, he's lucky it wasn't more serious.
