nypost.com – PHILADELPHIA — Philadelphia Phillies minor league pitcher Matt Imhof has lost his right eye after a freak accident with exercise equipment.
Imhof said in an Instagram post Thursday that he had surgery Tuesday to remove the eye. He said the first operation couldn’t restore his vision and he opted to have a prosthetic put in. Imhof said doctors told him that his right eye was “crushed like a grape.”
The 22-year-old left-hander was a second-round pick in 2014 out of Cal Poly. He was pitching for Single-A Clearwater.
