Mariners outfielder/first baseman Logan Morrison grew a bit frustrated with himself Sunday, and he ended up paying for it to the tune of five stitches.

After popping out in the fifth inning of an eventual 5-1 win over Texas, Morrison slammed a bat against the wall in the dugout in anger. The bat shattered and a piece of it lacerated him above his left eye. He needed five stitches and had to be removed from the game immediately.

Via seattletimes.com:

“Obviously I acted like a 3-year-old,” he said. “I apologized to my teammates. I'm about to go apologize to Mac. I can't do that. I didn't want to come out of the game. They saw me gushing blood from my eyebrow and they took me out. I'm embarrassed. No matter how bad I'm playing, I can't do that.”

Morrison, 26, is hitting .135/.200/.243 in 40 plate appearances this season. He's spent most of the season on the disabled list due to a hamstring strain and he's now day to day with the eye laceration.
