Photo: Aroldis Chapman's post-surgery photo is crazy

Embedded image permalink

Aroldis Chapman took to his Instagram account on Friday to share a hard-to-believe photo of what his head looks like post-surgery.

On Wednesday, you will recall that Chapman was on the wrong end of a screaming line drive hit by Salvador Perez, forcing Chapman to be carried off the field in a stretcher. He was quickly transported to a nearby a hospital to receive further evaluation.

On Thursday, the southpaw had surgery to repair the broken bone around his left eye and nose. The procedure involved the installation of a permanent metal plate, screws, and apparently lots of staples.

The photo above serves as evidence of the aftermath.
