Tony Sanchez hit in face with pitch, fractures jaw

By

Look, sometimes I just don’t have the right words for things. From this morning’s Pirates Notebook in the Post-Gazette:

Tony Sanchez, the Pirates’ top catching prospect, was beaned Tuesday for the second time in a month, with this pitch fracturing his jaw.

Sanchez is apparently on his way to see a specialist to determine if he needs surgery. Excuse me for a moment while I share with you my reaction the first time I read this news, which is still my reaction several hours later.

ARE YOU F—ING SERIOUS?!?

Here, we’ve got a catcher who some people say already plays big league quality defense and who’s got a .412 OBP in the low minors and was just named to the Future’s Game and probably about ready for a promotion to Double-A just about a year after his professional career started. And he gets hit in the face with a pitch twice in a month, with the second pitch fracturing his jaw?

WHAT OTHER TEAM DOES THIS SORT OF THING EVER HAPPEN TO?!?

I got nothing.
