4:30 p.m.: This is no laughing matter, despite the jokes that will inevitably fly after news of this breaks. It turns out that Mariners third baseman Adrian Beltre injured his testicle last night after a groundball took a bad hop and hit him in the groin area. No, he does not wear a protective cup.
There was some tearing of the testicle and apparently is some internal bleeding in there. The team is going to wait a bit to see whether he requires surgery. If the surgery was to take place, he would need a month's recovery time. If there's no surgery, he'd need about 10 days to two weeks.
Former dodger Adrian Beltre to DL, could be lost for season with injured testicle

Just came off the DL a few days ago. Back he goes.

I remember my freshman year in HS, I did not wear one because it was uncomfortable. But I saw my friend take a grounder to the area and after was coughing up blood. After that I wore one every single game.
Beltre is very fortunate it wasn't someone like Albert Pujols who hit the grounder. His testicle may have exploded.
