Yankees’ Masahiro Tanaka released from hospital after being hit on the head by a liner Giancarlo Stanton


New York Yankees right-hander Masahiro Tanaka had to be helped off the field on Saturday after being hit in the head by line training from Giancarlo Stanton. Tanaka, who had started a simulated match, was on the ground for several minutes before being assisted at the clubhouse by two coaches.

The entire scene was captured and broadcast on the YES Network as part of their coverage of the start of the Yankees’ second camp. Although we do not recommend it, you can click here to watch it for yourself.

The Yankees tweeted an update on Tanaka’s status, noting that he was “alert, responsive, and walking on his own,” and that he was sent to “NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital for further evaluation and testing. ” Tanaka has since been released from the hospital, the team said.

Tanaka, 31, is set to enter his seventh season with the Yankees. During his first six years, he made an average of 27 departures per pop and calculated a ratio of 113 ERA + and 4.74 withdrawals on foot. Last year, he made his second career All-Star game and led the Yankees in pitch innings.

Stanton, who reacted in horror, has already had a somewhat similar experience. He was hit in the face by a pitcher from Mike Fiers in September 2014. He suffered several facial fractures and had to undergo stitches and dental treatment. One can only hope that Tanaka will go away without similar injuries.

The Yankees are scheduled to start their season against the Washington Nationals on July 23. It is unknown whether this match will be played due to the state of the pandemic and the spread of COVID-19 across the country. The Major League Baseball originally planned to kick off its 2020 season on March 26. The new coronavirus forced the league to suspend these plans about two weeks ago, as did the rest of the sports world.
