NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Yankees catcher Gary Sanchez was the unfortunate one who took a foul ball to the groin Tuesday night, but practically everyone who saw it grimaced.

Including his teammate, David Robertson.

The empathetic Yankees relief pitcher reacted by dropping his jaw, placing his hand over his own groin and then burying his head in his glove.

Sanchez found Robertson’s reaction so amusing he posted a photo of it on Twitter with the caption “When your teammates ‘feel’ for you.” He also wrote that he’s OK.

Robertson responded on Twitter by saying, “I’ve never felt another man’s pain more.”

The Yankees beat the Twins, 8-4. They advance to face in the Indians in the ALDS, which begins Thursday in Cleveland.
