Vince Velasquez took a line drive off his right elbow, threw a piss rod to first base with his LEFT HAND, and collapsed to the ground as he writhed in pain. He got the out. It was boss, and he’s probably going to be a Philadelphia legend because we eat shit like this up:

Obviously, he left the game. Stay tuned.
Update: Initial tests after the game were encouraging:
Gabe Kapler said x-rays were negative for Vince Velasquez. He will be evaluated again tomorrow.
