Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Rymer Liriano was hospitalized Sunday after being hit by a pitch in the face, according to the Associated Press.
Liriano sustained multiple facial fractures when the wild pitch from the Dodgers’ Matt West collided with the left side of his face. Liriano was taken off the field on a backboard and kept in the hospital overnight for observation.
“He’s conscious, but...it’s serious,” Brewers manager Craig Counsell said, according to ESPN. “I don’t know. He got hit in the head. I can’t give you many details.”
Liriano, 24, made his major league debut in 2014 with the San Diego Padres. He spent 2015 with the Padres’ Triple A affiliate before being traded to the Brewers this off-season.
