The unfortunate incident was a complete shock to both Jose and his fiancee, Leila Knight. Jose was allegedly unaware the gun was loaded. The bullet reportedly blew off Joe’s left-hand middle finger, according to the Daily Mail.
Jose was rushed to the hospital around 3 P.M. ET and he underwent surgery to reattach his finger at 10 P.M. ET. Even more unfortunate is the fact that he might never regain full use of his finger, even if they are able to reattach the remainder of it.
This news is incredibly disheartening and sad. The Cuban-American MLB star is a right-handed batter who hit 462 home runs and was a six-time All-Star during his career.
We are keeping Jose in our thoughts and wishing him a full, healthy, and speedy recovery!
