JaCoby Jones of the Detroit Tigers was facing Twins reliever Justin Haley over weekend when, he took a 90-mph fastball off his face!

The center fielder only suffered a 'nasty split lip' after the pitch struck him at Target Field while his team were taking on the Minnesota Twins on Saturday.

He was taken to a hospital following the incident.

Jones has been placed on the 10-day disabled list, but on the plus side, things sounded so much worse and could have been. He spoke with the Detroit Free Press Sunday and said “everything feels normal”:

“Everything feels normal,” Jones said Sunday morning at Target Field. “I can bite down. Just my lip is swollen. My teeth are kind of sore. Other than that, it just feels like I got punched in the face.

“Last night I ate chicken, but I had to eat it in very small bites on this (right) side. I ate some ice cream and good stuff.”
