Dbacks Pitcher Archie Bradley Takes Comebacker to the Face (Video)
A frightening scene unfolded at Chase Field during Tuesday’s game between the Arizona Diamondbacks and Colorado Rockies, as Dbacks pitcher Archie Bradley was struck in the face by a Carlos Gonzalez line drive.
The play occurred during the top of the second inning, as the comebacker left Bradley motionless on the mound.
Watch, if you don’t mind seeing that sort of thing:
Fortunately, Archie Bradley was able to leave the field under his own power, and initial reports from the Diamondbacks training staff were positive:
#Dbacks trainer Ken Crenshaw says Archie Bradley’s initial prognosis is very positive with no signs of a concussion.

After watching that video (and hearing the sound of the impact), I don’t think one could have asked for better news than that.
