Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw took a line drive to the cheek while pitching in a spring training game against the Oakland A's today, surely causing every Dodgers fan in attendance to nearly faint.

Luckily for Kershaw, the ball came off a broken bat and just sort of fluttered its way into his face. After getting checked out by his manager and medical staff, Kershaw stayed in the game. We look forward to this moment being used in future LeBron-disparaging internet memes.
