Giancarlo Stanton Posts Gnarliest Instagram Pic After Face Fights Fastball

Giancarlo Stanton falls down after being hit in the face with a pitch during the fifth inning of a baseball game against the Milwaukee Brewers Thursday, Sept. 11, 2014, in Milwaukee.
The fastball won the battle but Giancarlo Stanton's face will win this war.
Stanton, shown above, is an MLB star for the Miami Marlins who took a fastball to the face last Thursday. On Tuesday, he posted a supremely gnarly pair of photos to Instagram showing what it looks like when the human face fights a fastball.
If you're the queasy type, now would be a good time to stop reading this post.
Stanton was carted off the field after Mike Fiers' 88-mph pitch hit him in the face during the fifth inning of the Marlins' game against the Milwaukee Brewers on Sept. 11. Fiers reacted in horror immediately after Stanton went down.
Here's video of the play. It's painful-looking but, seriously now, we're warning you — don't scroll down to see his Instagram post if you're adverse to gnarly photos.

The play ended Stanton's season after he "suffered facial lacerations requiring stitches, multiple facial fractures and dental damage," per ESPN.
OK, for real: Don't read on if you don't want to see the photo Stanton posted to Instagram.
Because we are about to show you.
So don't say we didn't warn you.
It's coming soon.
Just a second.
OK, here it is.
At left is Stanton's face shortly after reaching the hospital. At right is his swollen — but amazingly improved — face after, in Stanton's words, "making huge progress."
Here's hoping that progress continues and Stanton returns to the diamond better than ever in 2015.
Now cheer yourself up with these hilarious sports fails.
