Texas Rangers pitcher Dustin Nippert was taken to a Detroit-area hospital last night after taking a line drive off the bat of the Tigers' Austin Jackson.
A CAT scan came back negative and the right-hander is listed as day-to-day.
Nippert deserves a medal of bravery for not only getting back up after the liner, but trying to convince the Rangers' medical staff that he could continue pitching.
It's not the first time a pitcher has taken a ball to the melon this year. In May, Cleveland Indians' David Huff was struck by an Alex Rodriguez missile.
