SJ - June 27, 2021

Indians outfielder Josh Naylor was carted off the field after suffering a gruesome ankle injury.  He rolled up on his ankle after a collision with his teammate sent him helicoptering through the air.

After landing and rolling up on his ankle, Naylor's foot was turned to the right.  He was in immediate pain and the cart was needed to take him off the field.

You don't usually see these types of injuries in baseball.  If I had to guess I would say Naylor's going to miss some time recovering from this one.

And one more thing, stop it with "the injury made my stomach hurt."  Grow a pair, it didn't happen to you and there's not even a bone or anything sticking out.

It's gruesome, but don't overreact with "squeamish stomach" warnings.
