Oakland pitcher Chris Bassitt is on the way to the hospital after taking a line drive to the head Tuesday night.
It was the bottom of the second inning when White Sox batter Brian Goodwin slammed a 100.1 mph ball, only for it to squarely connect with the right side of Bassitt’s face. The 32-year-old was moving around, and according to the team’s public relations department, he “is conscious and aware.”
“We will provide additional information when possible.”
This season, Bassitt is 12-3 with a 3.06 ERA.
This story will continue to be updated as information is made available.
