Cubs infielder Javy Baez left Sunday’s game after taking a fastball to his elbow, thanks to A-Rod we know what a funny bone is. Like the baseball diva he is, Baez ended up on the ground before leaving the game.

It was later revealed that Baez had an elbow contusion. No kidding, it still doesn’t explain how he ended up on the ground after being hit with a pitch on his elbow.
We can only hope Baez is still able to tag with his boo boo. The game of baseball wouldn’t be the same if he’s unable to tag.
