If you have to suffer a season ending injury, at least make it on a play that makes ESPN's highlights.

Negron never gave his shoulder a thought when the ball left Marte's bat.
"I saw the ball off the bat and all I thought was this is going to be fun," Negron said. "I had to get there. I dove and on the replay you can see my shoulders kind of pop up."
Negron has a terrific second half in the 2014 season. This season was the first time he started the season on the Major League roster.
Negron was brought up last season in July and played 49 games, in which he hit .271 with a surprising six home runs. He was named Most Outstanding Player for the series with the Cleveland Indians.
"Kris was swinging the bat well late in the season at Louisville," Bryan Price said.
