On Thursday, a Philadelphia Phillies reliever saw a pitcher’s worst nightmare come to life on the mound as he saw his chance to have kids in the future possibly come to an end.
Jose Alvarez lined up and delivered a pitch to Toronto Blue Jays second baseman Lourdes Gurriel Jr. when the ball got smacked right back at him. Straight to his groin.
Alvarez had to be carted off the field following the incident. The line drive came back at Alvarez at 105.3-mph and left him no time to react.
Philadelphia sits at 9-11 on the season, 2.5 games out of first place.
