New York Mets utility player takes fastball to the groin

And now for your painful story of the day.

On Monday, the New York Mets squared off against Detroit Tigers ace Justin Verlander. The game started out with a bang for the Mets as leadoff man Jordany Valdespin took Verlander deep to get New York on the board early.

Apparently, his jog around the bases was a little too hotdoggish.

Because a couple of at-bats later, Valdespin's trip to the plate wasn't so joyful. He took a 94 MPH fastball from one of the game's hardest throwers right to the groin area.

Mets beat writer Mike Puma detailed the whole situation on Twitter.

All was good until....

Valdespin was lifted in favor of a pinch runner after the incident. Where exactly did it hit?
Is he okay?
Verlander chimes in....
Mets not too pleased with the youngster...
