In the 8th inning of last night's 5-3 Padres win over the Giants, San Diego outfielder Tommy Pham took an 86 MPH pitch to the junk. He brushed off the Sam Coonrod change-up and took his base, but was relieved of his duties shortly afterwards by his manager.
Ouch...Tommy Pham...I was in pain watching this. pic.twitter.com/oVzJuM6PWk

The fact that it wasn't a fastball probably helped Pham out a little bit. Even with a cup on, and I have no idea if he was wearing one, a fastball could have done some real damage.
Although I imagine a change-up to the junk didn't feel great either. Nobody should be surprised if Pham misses a game or two with a bruised dick.
