MLB: MAY 05 Athletics at Twins

Billy Burns left the game Friday against the Giants, and deservedly so.

The Athletics outfielder fouled a pitch off and it couldn’t have hit him in a worse spot. After leaving the game, he was diagnosed with a “testicular contusion”. That doesn’t sound ideal.

Burns joins Alcides Escobar and Jason Vargas in the exclusive club of baseball players who have taken brutal shots to the dreaded area this season.
