Cleveland Indians starting pitcher Trevor Bauer looks at his bleeding finger during the first inning in game three of the 2016 ALCS playoff baseball series against the Toronto Blue Jays.

Never try and fix your own drone.

That seems to be the lesson for Cleveland Indians pitcher Trevor Bauer, who was forced to leave Tuesday's Major League Baseball playoff match against the Toronto Blue Jays when his little finger wouldn't stop bleeding.

Bauer injured the finger when repairing a drone last week, and he had to miss Game Two of the American League Championship Series before starting Game Three on Tuesday.

However, pitching opened up the cut which had previously required at least 10 stitches, and Bauer was only able to complete 21 pitches in Toronto's first turn at bat before being replaced.
