Ryan Braun Cracked Teammate Jean Segura in the Face with Inadvertent Dugout Bat Swing

By Mike Cardillo

Ryan Braun accidentally smashed teammate Jean Seguar square in the face with an errant warm-up swing during Saturday’s Brewers/Cubs game in Milwaukee. According to Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel Segura didn’t suffer a concussion or any fractures, but required stitches from a plastic surgeon to close up the wound under his eye.

For his part Braun said he does that warm up routine often and offered up this explanation: “I’m actually surprised something doesn’t happen like that more often.” (Perhaps you should find another spot to do this going forward, Ryan. Maybe?)

Coincidentally Braun also left the game with a right intercostal strain in the ninth inning.
