Chris Bassitt hospitalized after getting hit in head by line drive; pitcher reportedly has facial fractures

A scary moment took place in Chicago’s Guaranteed Rate Field on Tuesday night. In the bottom of the second inning, White Sox batter Brian Goodwin sent a rocket toward the mound and Oakland Athletics starter Chris Bassitt got hit with it in the side of the head.

The line drive was 100.1 miles per hour off the bat and it didn’t appear Bassitt got a glove on it. It wasn’t a glancing blow, either. It just struck Bassitt squarely on the right side of the face, possibly in the upper cheek area, hopefully not too close to his eye. 

In the smallest of small reliefs, it doesn’t appear that Bassitt lost consciousness. He was moving around, though not much and he never removed the towel from his head and/or face.
