Kevin Pillar continues to prove he’s an absolute savage, as he hit two home runs off a bloody bat this week.
Nobody and we want to say no one You can never question the toughness of New York Mets outfielder Kevin Pillar. Earlier this spring, one of the scariest moments of the campaign came when Pillar received a drill in the face and blood was flying everywhere. That was May 17th.
About two weeks later, Pillar was back in action for New York. On Wednesday night, the veteran hit two home runs. However, that is not the whole story. A close look at your bat shows some bloody wood. Goodness.
New York Mets fans can’t help but show Kevin Pillar love for his toughness
As you can see in the photo above, Pillar’s nose is still messy since he was pierced with the 94 MPH heater last month. Do you think that’s going to have an impact on him at the plate? No possibility.
He made that very clear by hitting both of his home runs against the Orioles. While Pillar has already come out and said the blood is not from when he was originally hit in the face, this still shows just how much of an animal he is to his ball club.
On the season, he’s hitting .262 with 4 home runs and 13 RBIs. Of course, the Mets are in the midst of an impressive season, as the team currently sits at the top of the NL East standings at 30-24. They are 3.5 games ahead of the Phillies, while the Braves are four games behind. Pillar may still be suffering from his traumatic experience, but nothing will stop him from helping his team go out and try to win the division.
