Giants pitcher Jeff Samardzija left Tuesday’s game against the Rockies in the first inning, and he was not happy about it.
It was reported that he was dealing with some shoulder soreness, and being the competitor that he is, Samardzija clearly did not want to exit the game as early as he did. His fastball velocity was, however, a few mph less than it usually clocks in at.
After walking off the mound, Samardzija made his way to the dugout, where he took his frustration out on a bat. He smashed it over his knee, and then threw each half away in disgust.
It’s hard not to feel bad for the bat. Samardzija destroyed it quite easily.
