Zimmermann Leaves Start Early After Being Hit By Comebacker

Zimmermann Leaves Start Early After Being Hit By Comebacker

The incident happened in the first inning, with just the second batter Zimmermann faced, Jason Kipnis.

Starter Jordan Zimmermann was taken out of the game in the first inning after he was hit in the face with a line drive.

The ball rolled to first baseman Miguel Cabrera, who stepped on first for the out.

The outcome mattered little to anyone watching. Zimmermann collapsed to the dirt, where he laid facedown until Tigers catcher James McCann and team trainers came rushing to his aid. After a few minutes, Zimmermann sat up and then walked off the field under his own power. Zimmermann will continue to be evaluated and another update is expected shortly.

Detroit Tigers pitcher Jordan Zimmermann awaits medical attention after he was struck in the jaw by a line drive in a game against the Cleveland Indians, April 11, 2018.

It was the situation all pitchers fear: a line drive hurtling right back at them. In 2007 while pitching with the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point, Zimmermann had to get his jaw wired shut after a similar play. That's especially true when the pitcher is struck in the head or face.
