"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.

Josh Wilson has been activated for now. We're still waiting to see how severe Jack Wilson's hamstring injury is. There's a Grade 1 tear in that, but the team is still deliberating whether or not to keep him active. We should know before gametime, but he's going to miss at least a few days.

Back to Beltre, he was hurt on a hard grounder that kicked off to his right in the eighth inning.

"It hurt pretty bad,'' he said. "It was hurting me pretty much the whole game after that.''

Told that some were suggesting he was brave for staying in the game, he quipped:

"I don't know about brave. Maybe stupid.''

Beltre has an appointment with a surgeon tomorrow to discuss whether he needs an operation.

"It's a shame,'' Mariners GM Jack Zduriencik told me moments ago. "You hate to see something like this happen, but your first thoughts have to be about the player. You want him to make a complete recovery.''"

In college, I saw a catcher blocking the plate who took the runner's cletes right in the groin. His cup wasn't fitting right, and moved around sometimes. His scro.tum was ripped. No damage to his balls, but he was out for five weeks. Ouch!

This is why you should spend every day and cherish your time with your junk because you never know how long you might have.
