@SammyDavisIAmCincinnati Reds closer Aroldis Chapman was struck by a line drive to the face during a game against the Kansas City Royals Wednesday night. Chapman suffered a broken nose as well as broken bones above his left eye. Although he sustained these intense injuries, he was conscious and talking as he was taken off the field. The incident happened after Chapman threw a 99 mph pitch to Salvador Perez with two outs in the sixth inning. Perez didn’t reach first base before he was seen clutching his helmet and then immediately rushed to the mound. Reds first-year manager Bryan Price updated the Associated Press on Chapman’s status after leaving the field. “He left the field on a stretcher, took a line drive just above his left eye is what it looks like — a contusion, a laceration, and certainly needs to be taken to the hospital and checked. We've got Tomas Vera, an assistant trainer, is going to be with him. And then we'll get our updates from there." The game was called after an 8 minute delay. Chapman was initially taken to Banner Del E. Webb Medical Center in Sun City and is now being treated at Banner Good Samaritan Medical Center in Phoenix.
