Angels’ Nolan Schanuel suffers ‘testicular contusion,’ misses series finale vs Red Sox

Los Angeles Angels outfielder Nolan Schanuel was forced to miss Sunday’s series finale against the Boston Red Sox due to what was described as a “testicular contusion.”

Schanuel suffered the injury off of a foul ball in the third inning of the team’s 7-2 loss against the Red Sox. Miguel Sano replaced Schanuel, who was 0-for-2 with two strikeouts.

“He’s fine. What’d they call it? A testicular contusion,” Angels manager Ron Washington told reporters with a laugh, via Bally Sports West. “… You know, it’s not funny but he’s fine.”

Los Angeles lost the series finale to Boston 5-4 on Sunday afternoon. Los Angeles dropped to 7-8 on the season while Boston improved to 9-7.
