Jarrod Parker has been having some serious command issues in 2013. He gave up two homers in the first inning to the Indians on Monday, bounced a pitch to the plate, and then on the next offering, nearly hit Mark Reynolds in the head with a fastball:
It wasn't intentional, but we saw just a few innings later that Reynolds was possibly still miffed about being hit when he took his sweet time walking out of the batter's box:
That, or he just wanted to admire a 457-foot blast that is the 15th-longest of 2013, tying Reynolds with, oh look, a Mark Reynolds homer from April 3 against Toronto's Sergio Santos. The lesson? Don't throw Mark Reynolds strikes that live in the actual strike zone, because then they will live in the bleachers.
Bonus gif update: Also, Mark Reynolds will totally make you look owned on extended replays of said homers:
