Willie Calhoun suffers fractured jaw after being hit in face by pitch

Texas Rangers

The Texas Rangers suffered a major blow Sunday with an ugly injury to one of their bright young power hitters.

Outfielder/DH Willie Calhoun took a Julio Urias fastball right to the face on Sunday in a very scary incident and had to be carted off the field.

The injury, unfortunately, turned out to be as bad as it looked. Calhoun was diagnosed with a fractured jaw, and is likely to miss extended time.

Calhoun only played in 83 games last season but hit .269 with 21 home runs. He was expected to be a key part of the Texas lineup this season, but he’s set to miss at least part of 2020 as a result of this unfortunate accident.
