So we finally got a look at Trevor Bauer’s cut finger and boy is it disgusting.
Umpires forced the the 25-year-old Cleveland Indians pitcher was forced out of Game 3 of the American League Championship Series against the Toronto Blue Jays because the pinky on his pitching hand wouldn’t stop gushing blood everywhere. Bauer, originally scheduled to pitch Game 2, had his start moved back after cutting the finger while working on one of his drones.
As stupid of an injury Bauer’s finger fiasco is, we actually feel pretty bad for the kid, who attempted to go out there and gut his way through his start.
It seems Twitter was more interested in cracking a few jokes, because what else is new.
Here’s a look at some of the social reaction.
The Indians still found a way to win the game, taking a commanding 3-0 series lead.
