ARLINGTON, Texas (FOX19) -

Todd Frazier's day went downhill fast Wednesday afternoon when he dove into the stands to catch a foul ball. 

Frazier belted his 11th home run of season in the bottom of the fourth inning against the Texas Rangers. In the bottom of the frame, Frazier chased down a Prince Fielder pop fly that drifted into the stands at Globe Life Park. 

The former Reds third baseman dove into the crowd, emerged with the ball and darted towards the White Sox dugout covering his face. 

Whitesox.com is reporting that Frazier needed five stitches on the inside of his lower lip to repair a laceration.  

"I actually did catch it. I thought I did on the replay, then I ran into a guy, my momentum took me into the stands and my head went right into the armrest," Frazier said to WhiteSox.com. "I basically felt my tongue go through my bottom lip. That was why I just basically ran off as quick as I could. I kind of knew there was a little hole there."

Frazier is officially listed as day-to-day.
