JaCoby Jones of the Detroit Tigers took a Justin Haley fastball right to the face on Saturday, and it was a scary scene.
It was in the bottom of the third. Haley lost control of a four-seam fastball, and he immediately wished he could have it back as Jones bolted straight for the dugout bleeding from the mouth.
He never made it, falling to the ground in obvious pain as trainers rushed out to attend to his wound.

From all of us here at Sportsnaut, we wish Jones well as he recovers. Hopefully he didn’t lose any teeth. At the least, he’ll have a split lip, if not a broken nose, to boot.
