UPDATE: Velez struck in dugout with liner, taken to hospital

Jul 25, 2010, 8:42 AM EDT

Eugenio Velez was struck in the dugout by a Pat Burrell foul ball on Saturday at Chase Field and had to be rushed to a local hospital...

SUNDAY:  The Giants’ official Twitter feed brings us good news.  Velez never lost consciousness Saturday and his CT scan came back negative.  He spent the night in the hospital, but mostly for precautionary purposes.

SATURDAY, 10:42 PM:  Scary scene tonight at Arizona’s Chase Field.

Giants utilityman Eugenio Velez had to be carried out of the stadium on a stretcher after being struck in the dugout by a Pat Burrell foul ball.  It appeared to hit him in the head, but the Giants have not confirmed where exactly he has struck.  What we do know is that it looked ugly, and that the 28-year-old Velez laid on the ground for over a minute while his concerned teammates gathered around.

Velez was taken to a local hospital and most likely suffered a concussion, if not something worse.  He has hit .196/.275/.370 this season with two home runs, eight RBI and seven runs scored in 46 at-bats.

    Watching it on tv it did not look good. Seems we was walking up from the clubhouse and once he reached top step he got nailed!
