We guess we didn’t realize how fast those balls are going, even when you’re just bunting!
Max Scherzer was set to start as pitcher against the Phillies and was bunting during batting practice when a ball went rogue, ricocheted off the bat and nailed him in the face!
Scherzer broke his nose and a CT scan “revealed no further neurological damage” so now he just has a massive black eye and a banged up nose.
Just makes him look tougher, it’s fine.
WATCH – Max Scherzer, who's scheduled to start Wednesday, was hit in the face by a ball during batting practice.
