Buck Showalter Orders On-Deck Circle Mats Removed

The animated .gif in the article explains why.

Chasing a foul ball off the bat of Ryan Ludwick in the fifth inning, Orioles catcher Caleb Joseph slipped on the rubber on-deck circle and skidded into the camera well next to the Baltimore dugout.

Jennings takes liner off head in Marlins loss to Pirates

In one seventh-inning instant, the game became secondary.

The Marlins and Pirates played through a horrific episode that saw lefty reliever Dan Jennings take a Jordy Mercer liner off the left side of his head. The ball went straight up and into the glove of shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria.

A shocked and disoriented Jennings went down and got up immediately. Catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia arrived and helped him down to a knee. PNC Park went silent. Jennings’ teammates gathered and Mercer in a catcher’s crouch looked on from the infield grass between first base and the mound.

It sounds like he’s going to be OK, but man, that was scary.
