Yankees' Montgomery struck in head by foul ball while signing autographstheScore
New York Yankees starter Jordan Montgomery was taken into the clubhouse during batting practice Saturday after being struck in the head by a baseball while signing autographs, according to FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal.
The 24-year-old was seen holding a towel up to his head on the Yankees' bench before retreating into the clubhouse, though a team official told Rosenthal he believes the pitcher - who is scheduled to start Sunday against the Boston Red Sox - will be OK.
According to MLB.com's Bryan Hoch, someone on the field during the incident said Montgomery felt "woozy" after being struck.
Montgomery was recalled Friday by the Bronx Bombers to replace the injured CC Sabathia, who went on the disabled list due to right knee inflammation. On Saturday, the Yankees lost another of their starters to injury when Masahiro Tanaka was also placed on the DL, but with inflammation in his right shoulder.
Montgomery, a southpaw in his rookie season, has put up respectable numbers in his first MLB campaign. In 21 starts, he owns a 4.05 ERA and 1.27 WHIP in 115 2/3 innings.
