Yankees place Bryan Mitchell on concussion disabled list after line drive to face

7 Comments

Yankees right-hander Bryan Mitchell has been placed on the seven-day concussion disabled list after being hit in the face by an Eduardo Nunez line drive in Monday’s start against the Twins.

It was an incredibly scary moment, as Mitchell left the field holding a towel to his bloody face and was later diagnosed with a nasal fracture, but he was released from the hospital without an overnight stay.

Mitchell goes to the disabled list with a 3.38 ERA and 29/9 K/BB ratio in 32 career innings for the Yankees, so hopefully he’ll avoid a lengthy absence and rejoin the pitching staff for a September role.

Update (9:16 PM ET): Aaaaaand it’s over. Just like that. Starlin Castro led off the eighth inning with a solo home run to left field. That ends the shutout bid as well, obviously.

Padres starter Chris Paddack has kept the Marlins hitless through seven innings on Wednesday evening in Miami. The right-hander has allowed two base runners on a throwing error and a walk while striking out seven on 82 pitches.

The Padres’ offense provided Paddack with three runs of support, all coming in the fourth on Greg Garcia‘s RBI single and a two-run home run by Austin Hedges.

Paddack, 23, entered Wednesday’s start carrying a 2.84 ERA with an 87/18 K/BB ratio across 82 1/3 innings in his rookie campaign.

Among all 30 teams, the Padres are the only one without a no-hitter. They came into the league in 1969. The Marlins were last victims of a no-hitter on September 28, 2014 when Jordan Zimmermann — then with the Nationals — accomplished the feat.
