Yamma Hamma, It’s Fright Night! Bleeding Testicle Might End Adrian Beltre’s Season


Yowsers. Seattle Mariners third baseman Adrian Beltre could miss the rest of the season after taking a wicked one-hopper off his ball sack in Wednesday night’s game against the White Sox.

Manager Don Wakamatsu said the Gold Glove third baseman is out indefinitely, and might need surgery because of bleeding in a testicle. Beltre does not wear a protective cup because he says it’s uncomfortable.

If Beltre needs surgery, he could be out for an extended time. If there’s no surgery, he would need 10 days to two weeks to recover.

In a shining example of intesticle fortitude, Beltre stayed in the game, eventually scoring the winning run. According to Beltre, “It hurt pretty bad. It was hurting me pretty much the whole game after that.”

I’m sure it was, Mr. Beltre. I’m sure it was.
