Not even a cup could protect Francisco Cervelli from experiencing momentous amounts of pain after he was hit in the nuts by a foul tip during Wednesday’s Yankees-Tigers game.
As soon as Cervelli went down, a Yankees trainer bolted out of the dugout to assist him. While Cervelli was trying to regain his wind, the trainer had his hand on Cervelli’s collarbone, causing the YES announcers to briefly believe that’s where the catcher was struck. After another replay, they realized he was actually hit in the worst region possible.
Clearly everything was knocked out of him. Poor guy.
