White Sox third baseman Todd Frazier hit a homer during today’s White Sox-Rangers game. That’s good! But then later he needed five stitches to fix a cut on his lower lip after diving into the stands to chase down a foul ball. That’s bad! The cut doesn’t seem too severe, as he is considered day-to-day. That’s good!

Unfortunately the medication used to treat the cut contains potassium benzoate. That’s . . . [that’s bad].

You can see the play here. Seems he knocked his mouth into a seat. Sorry dude.
