Erick Aybar Has 2016’s Most Ridiculous Injury In Baseball
Every year there are ridiculous injuries in baseball. From getting hurt failing at motorcycle stunts like Jeff Kent, to hurting your back sneezing like Sammy Sosa, to of course celebrating a walk off home run and shattering your leg and costing you essentially two seasons of your career like Kendrys Morales. Well, we have found our early 2016 front runner to be this year's version.
Erick Aybar was in the lineup today for the Atlanta Braves. Not that this would done much good, as Aybar is batting .174 with 0 home runs, 5 RBI and 7 runs scored. He has two struck out 27 times compared to walking just four. He won't get the chance to improve on these statistics tonight.
#Braves SS Erick Aybar got a chicken bone stuck in throat at lunch, taken to doctor to be sedated and have it removed.

Sounds incredibly painful and scary in all honesty. Will it stop us from crushing a ton of chicken wings this weekend? Probably not, but it's definitely something to worry about. MLB fans were not kind to poor Mr. Aybar's misfortunes.
@DOBrienAJC He must have thought the bone he choked on was an RBI situation or routine ground ball.

@DOBrienAJC hopefully he will need to go on the disable list till October...

@DOBrienAJC his sorry ass should have been fielding grounders or taking extra BP instead
