Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina left Saturday's game in the 9th inning after taking a foul tip on a 102 MPH fastball to the groin.  

On Sunday morning news broke that the Cardinals were placing Molina on the disabled list following emergency surgery on a traumatic hematoma.

Molina is expected to be out for at least a month, via ESPN:

St. Louis Cardinals star catcher Yadier Molina underwent surgery Saturday night after being hit in the groin by a foul tip and is expected to miss a month, according to president of baseball operations John Mozeliak.

Mozeliak told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that Molina underwent emergency surgery to treat a traumatic hematoma that required immediate attention. The Cardinals will place Molina on the 10-day disabled list later Sunday.

It turns out the situation wasn't something a bag of frozen vegetables could take care of.  If I'm Molina I don't get behind the plate without a kevlar helmet protecting my junk.
