‘Freak injury’ after being hit by a beastly pitch…rejoins squad, swelling and headaches ‘still there’

Pitcher Chase Silseth (23, Los Angeles Angels) has been reinstated to the active roster after being hit in the head by a pitch during a game.

MLB.com, the official website of Major League Baseball (MLB)바카라, reported on Monday (Aug. 28) that Silseth, who was hit in the head by a pitch, was treated at a local hospital and released. He is back on the field, but is still dealing with swelling and headaches. Silses started a game against the New York Mets on July 27 and suffered a “freak injury” in the fourth inning. While fielding, he was struck in the head by a grounder to third base by first baseman Trey Cabrera. After falling to the ground with his cap knocked off, Silseth was checked by trainers and removed from the game. He was not immediately placed on the disabled list (IL), but the team continues to monitor his condition.

“He avoided anything serious, but you always have to be careful with head injuries,” Angels manager Phil Nevin said. In 15 games (seven starts) this season, Silses is 4-1 with a 4.10 ERA. His latest opportunity as a starter was cut short by an unexpected injury.

“The Angels could go with a five-man rotation of Griffin Canning-Lucas Giolito-Tyler Anderson-Reed Detmers-Patrick Sandoval if Silseth is unable to start,” MLB.com said.
