Calhoun has fractured jaw after being hit by pitch

SURPRISE, Ariz.—The Rangers were left shaken up as a team after outfielder Willie Calhoun was hit in the mouth by a 95 mph fastball during Sunday’s 9-8 win over the Dodgers.

The club announced that a CT scan and examination revealed a fractured jaw. Calhoun is expected to undergo further evaluation on Monday.

Calhoun was batting in the bottom of the first when he was hit by a pitch thrown by left-hander Julio Urías. Calhoun went down immediately, staying on the ground for about 10 minutes while being tended to by Rangers trainer Matt Lucero.

Calhoun suffered bleeding inside of the mouth, but did not lose consciousness. He was finally placed in an equipment cart, driven off the field and then taken to St. Joseph’s Hospital in Phoenix for further examination and treatment by a specialist.
