Oakland A’s pitcher Chris Bassitt was released from a Chicago hospital Tuesday night, with doctors determining that he had sustained a fractured cheekbone when he was struck in the head by a line drive.

Bassitt “received stitches for two facial lacerations and was diagnosed with a displaced tripod fracture in his right cheek that will require surgery,” the A’s said in a statement. “An exam of his right eye was normal for vision and no other damage is currently noted in the eye or the orbital bone. In addition, a head CT scan revealed no further injury. We are grateful to the White Sox, their medical staff and the doctors and nurses at Rush [University Medical Center] for their excellent care.”
that ball got to him really fast ... made me cringe as soon as I saw it ... his injury sucks but that could have been a lot worse
