Ouch! Jason Heyward got hit in the face by a 90 MPH fastball thrown by Jonathon Niese. As you can see in the GIF below, it was a gruesome sight. After being transported a local hospital, X-rays show that the star outfielder for the Atlanta Braves suffered a broken jaw.

Heyward will need to undergo surgery for this injury. He actually has two separate fractures. Estimates have him out anywhere from a month to six weeks.

Looking at the GIF, Heyward might actually lucky to “only” have suffered a broken jaw. Fastballs to the face can do permanent damage and sometimes even kill!

    So can he just get it wired and set and continue to play, or is he going to miss some significant time?

      I bet he will miss a lot of games.A broken jaw is no joke. I bet he’d be wearing those metal braces anywhere from a few weeks to more or less than a month. That’s going to hurt. A lot.

    Lucky for him it was a fast ball.Think about it. Who knows what could have gotten hit if it was a curve ball. I also think that Jonathon Niese would be great at dodge ball.
