Chicago White Sox' catcher Yasmani Grandal exited Saturday's game against the Cleveland Guardians following a scary play at the plate. On a seventh-inning single by Elvis Andrus, Grandal was waved around third and attempted to score but injured his knee in the process.

After attempting to avoid a tag at home plate, he dropped to the ground in a significant amount of pain. The veteran backstop exited the field with the help of trainers and Seby Zavala took over behind the plate.
