OUCH is an understatement. I saw this in the paper,
Astros prospect Delino DeShields Jr. ended up in the hospital after taking a fastball to the face Friday night.
The aftermath of the beaning was shared in a grotesque Twitter photo.
DeShields Jr., whose father Delino DeShields Sr. had a 13-year big league career with five clubs, is the seventh-ranked prospect in the Astros’ minor-league system.
The son of former major leaguer Delino DeShields (above) is recovering after getting hit in the face.
The 21-year-old center fielder, who was the Astros first-round pick in the 2010 first-year player draft, walked off the field under his own power, MLB.com reported. He was struck on the right side of his face in the seventh inning of the Corpus Christi Hooks’ game in Frisco, Texas.
We pray for a speedy recovery.
