Arizona Diamondbacks right-handed reliever Evan Marshall was struck on the right side of the head while pitching for the Reno Aces last night.
When you hear than you know that it isn’t good news, and all we can do is hope for the best.
Marshall, 25, was pitching for Reno in the 6th inning against El Paso in San Antonio, and was hit directly in the head by Jason Hagerty on a line drive right up the middle.
Marshall was immediately taken to the hospital, and according to Steve Gilbert of MLB.com, Marshall still remains their.
A Triple A trainer with the Aces has been with Marshall since he arrived, and the Dbacks will send a member of their medical staff to be with Marshall.
Marshall was one of the most dominant relievers for the Dbacks at the major league level in 2014 appearing in 54 games and compiling a 2.74 ERA.
Marshall started off with the Dbacks in 2015, but he was optioned to the Aces in May and has a 6.40 ERA in 31 games.
At this point nobody knows anything else about his condition and we will update this story when we learn more information. The organization can’t say anything else because of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act.
Prayers go out to Evan Marshall and his family for a speedy recovery and hope he can begin pitching again soon.
