After a slide that Major League Baseball deemed to be out of bounds, Jake Marisnick of the Astros will miss only two games while contesting his legal battle.

Jonathan Lucroy, the man who received the brunt end of Marisnick's decision, will miss plenty more time than that, though not nearly as much as he could've.

After surgery to relieve a broken nose, Lucroy will miss around three weeks of action.

While many in the MLB fraternity are still handling this situation with care (it seems like Marisnick was genuinely hurt by the discourse in the aftermath), Lucroy's son is pulling no punches.

Ideally, the embattled catcher is back in no time with a healthy schnozz, and is able to rejoin what's quickly become a season full of bizarre, otherworldly happenings for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

Prior to the injury, Lucroy was hitting .237 with 7 homers, and he'll be rejoining an entirely different club in the midst of a Wild Card push when he gets back.
