This isn’t the kind of Large Adult Son content anybody wants to consume. Bo Bichette has reportedly suffered a broken left hand after getting hit by a pitch in Buffalo’s loss last night.

This is really unfortunate because Bichette was starting to heat up at the plate. Earlier on Monday, the Bisons named him Player of the Week for his .400 batting average and his seven runs batted in. For the season, Bichette is slashing a .250/.310/.404 line with one homer, eight runs batted in, three steals, five walks, and 10 strikeouts. He’s also the youngest player on the team not named Vlad Jr.

Bichette is seeking a second opinion on the diagnosis, but given the accounts of him screaming in pain after getting hit last night, it doesn’t look good.
