The last thing Joe Kelly needed this week was a broken window. His wife Ashley was scheduled to induce the delivery of twins Friday, leading Joe and the couple's 4-year-old son Knox to help prepare for the big day.

But Tuesday afternoon the Dodgers pitcher was forced to deal with an unexpected hiccup.

While executing a throwing program with a hockey-puck-like device called "Clean Fuego" Kelly missed his throwing net completely, resulting the complete shattering of the window attached to the guest room Brock Holt was staying in just weeks before.

The video, which was being shot so that he could send the workout to his pitching coaches, was put on Instagram by Ashley, leading to a deluge of social media reaction. Kelly explained how the entire incident took place when appearing on the Bradfo Sho podcast, adding the fallout from trying to find a new window before his wife's due date.
