Tigers CF Jones hit in face by pitch, taken to hospital


In fact, I think Sano's reaction to the entire deal was totally justified, and as a Twins fan who's been waiting to see more fire from the team, I'm not at all upset.

Detroit starter Matthew Boyd was ejected two innings later Saturday when he threw behind Twins slugger Miguel Sano, who pointed his finger at Boyd and yelled out toward the mound. The Tigers have won 11 of the past 12 games between the teams in Minnesota.

Detroit Tigers right-hander Justin Verlander has historically been very good against the division-rival Minnesota Twins through the years.

"That'll be the worst part, just sitting here watching the games", he said.

Since each of the 30 Major League Baseball teams have a long 162-game campaign and you can generally count the total number of physical altercations on one hand in a given season, whenever one happens, it's usually for a valid reason. Detroit has won seven of the last nine games against Minnesota.

Miguel Sano and Matthew Boyd ejected after Twins vs. Tigers brawl
Twins: In his last outing, Minnesota's Kyle Gibson (0-2, 6.91) pitched into the sixth inning for the first time this year. He took several steps in the direction of first base and the pitcher's mound and pointed and shouted something at Boyd.

Detroit Tigers outfielder JaCoby Jones was the league's latest victim of such an incident, taking a 1-2 fastball to the face in the third inning of Saturday's Tigers-Twins game.

Jones suffered a split lip and went to the hospital for a CT scan, with Detroit manager Brad Ausmus saying its likely a trip to the disabled list would follow.

Tempers flared in the fifth inning after Tigers pitcher Matt Boyd threw behind Miguel Sano.

"Our pitcher, he didn't intentionally hit him in the face", Sano said. He will be placed on the disabled list Sunday, the Tigers said. Why did the James McCann and the umpire feel the need to go after him? There's nothing I can do.

After the game, Sano offered his perspective on what happened with McCann.

"I still have the scar from the four stitches here (left eyebrow) where I was hit in Low-A", he said. He woke up at 4:15 on Sunday morning, had his connecting flight in Chicago delayed, and arrived at Target Field about 90 minutes before the first pitch to learn that he was in the lineup and hitting seventh.

Jones will be placed on the 10-day disabled list. Martinez, and Jose Iglesias.

The Tigers have been without outfielder J.D. Martinez (right mid-foot sprain) all season. That's the bottom line. That's not how sports works. As you saw, he appeared to be a bit woozy after the play as well. They're here for a reason.

After the game, the Twins put Haley on the 10-day DL with right biceps tendinitis. Second baseman Brian Dozier is at.242.

Also, Sano is one of the leading power threats for the Twins. You have to try to pound the zone as much as you can and hopefully get some weak contact. At the time, Tigers were up 3-2. "I'm trying to make that adjustment". Instead, Polanco instead hit a two-run double off Boyd.
