Bryan Stow, who has been in a coma since being beaten by Dodgers fans after an March 31 game at Dodger Stadium, is opening his eyes, neurosurgeon Dr. Geoff Manley said Wednesday.
Manley reported that Stow has been weaned off one of five anti-seizure medications he was on since going into a coma and that his brain had showed no seizure activity in 30 hours of continuing monitoring.
Manley says these developments are positive but he could not predict Stow’s chances for recovery.
The Dodgers earlier Wednesday added $100,000 to the reward pot for infomation leading to the capture of the men who beat Stow.
The Yankees announced on Wednesday that the club traded outfielder Jabari Blash to the Angels in exchange for a player to be named later or cash considerations.
Blash, 28, was acquired by the Yankees from the Padres back in December in the Chase Headley trade. In trading Blash to the Angels, the Yankees were able to free up a spot on the 40-man roster for Brandon Drury, the infielder they acquired as part of a three-team trade with the Diamondbacks and Rays on Tuesday.
Over parts of two seasons in the majors, Blash has hit an underwhelming .200/.323/.336 in 279 plate appearances. He will try to play his way into a bench role for the Angels this spring.
