Apparently collisions were the cool thing to do on Monday, as Jose Altuve kicked off the evening's events with a face injury of his own. Unlike Bryce Harper, there was no blood involved, but he did partially dislocate his jaw when he crashed into right fielder Jimmy Paredes on a fly ball. If you want appropriately fancy medical terminology with your face injuries, it's a subluxed jaw:
Altuve might be listed at 5-foot-5 -- notice how Paredes is ducking when the two smash faces, while Altuve is upright -- but he's apparently much tougher than he is tall, as he told manager Bo Porter he's ready to play on Tuesday night.
I already feel shame for the next time I'm annoyed at having to work while a wisdom tooth is sore and Advil isn't fixing things as fast as I'd like.
