Yankees Infielder Suffers Injury On Bizarre Play

This bizarre set of circumstances will leave your head spinning. It certainly did for New York Yankees' utilityman Marwin Gonzalez.

He had to leave Friday night's game due to a bout of dizziness. But there was no rest for the weary, as he was forced into Saturday's lineup as the first baseman, with both Anthony Rizzo and DJ LeMahieu still out. 

Then, in his first at-bat of the game, came this ridiculous play that was the last thing Gonzalez needed:

Milwaukee Brewers catcher Victor Caratini, in trying to throw the ball back to the pitcher, carelessly beaned Gonzalez in the helmet with the throw. Not what a guy already suffering from dizziness really needs. 

Gonzalez left the game, and rookie outfielder Oswaldo Cabrera was forced to come in from right field to play his second game in the majors as a first baseman. 

The 33-year-old veteran, Gonzalez, was left with a big welt on the side of his face.

He's appeared in 76 games for the Yankees this season, batting .193 with a .597 OPS, five home runs and 15 RBIs. He's played at least a handful of games at every position around the diamond except catcher and center field.
