Masahiro Tanaka Update After Line Drive To Head

The line drive that struck New York Yankees pitcher Masahiro Tanaka in the head off the bat of Giancarlo Stanton on Saturday came to the mound at 112 mph. Tanaka decided not to use the L-screen to protect him before taking the line drive to the right side of his head during a simulated game at Yankee Stadium. The Japanese star got up and walked off the field with the help of staff after laying motionless on the ground for approximately 10 minutes.

Tanaka was released from the hospital Saturday night and diagnosed with a mild concussion and was at Yankee Stadium on Sunday. He is currently in the league’s concussion protocol and is walking around, acting like his normal self. According to manager Aaron Boone, Tanaka came to the clubhouse between noon and 12:30 in really good spirits.

It looks like the Yankees dodged a bullet…
