Yankees prospect gets cruel injury reminder from video game

New York Yankees prospect Ty Hensley hasn't played in a real baseball game since the 2012 season. He missed all of 2013 because of injury and he still hasn't played this year. These days, Hensley gets his baseball fix playing the popular "MLB 14 The Show" video game, but even shut him down recently.

Injured ballplayers everywhere shudder on behalf of their digital likenesses.
