Saturday August 5th, 2017

Milwaukee Brewers third baseman Travis Shaw was hit on the left side of the head while stealing second base during Saturday’s game against Tampa Bay. He left the game shortly afterward.

Shaw lost his helmet after being hit between his ear and neck. He lay still on the ground while trainers attended to him and eventually rose to his feet and returned to the clubhouse. He was dazed but conscious.

The Brewers classified the injury as a neck contusion and listed Shaw as day-to-day.

Shaw, 27, is enjoying a breakout season with the Brewers. He entered Saturday batting .290 with 24 home runs and 74 RBIs.
