No, Carlos Santana did not "deserve" to have his leg destroyed last night

Like I said, I’m not watching the Carlos Santana video again so the underlying point of this Bleacher Report article — that Carlos Santana shouldn’t have been blocking the plate in that situation — may or may not be a good one, but I don’t care if Santana set up a lounge chair 50 feet up the baseline: this headline is in horrible taste and is totally uncalled for.

Dan Connolly of BaltimoreBaseball.com reports that Orioles third baseman Tim Beckham underwent core muscle surgery in Philadelphia on Thursday and is expected to miss the next six to seven weeks.

Beckham, 28, was originally diagnosed with a strained left groin. He sustained the injury during spring training and reaggravated it on Monday against the Indians.

Beckham was off to a slow start, batting .179/.247/.262 in 93 plate appearances. Danny Valencia and Jace Peterson should handle the hot corner while Beckham is out.
