In the third of inning of Friday's series opener, Angels third baseman David Freese took a pitch to the left fingers from Rangers right-hander Colby Lewis. The slow-motion replay of the impact is pretty amazing:

Ow. Ow ow ow.

Believe it or not, Freese initially remained in the game to run the bases after being looked at by the trainer. He did leave the game after the inning with what is being called a finger contusion.

Freese, 31, is off to a very slow start this season, his first in Anaheim. He came into Friday's game hitting only .193/.250/.277 (51 OPS+) with two home runs in 23 games.

The Angels have not given any update beyond the contusion diagnosis.
