Mark Reynolds, who was hit in the head with a 95 mph fastball by Nationals right-hander Collin Balester on Tuesday, was incredibly back in the starting lineup for Wednesday’s game. He wasn’t able make it through the whole game, however.
During a pitching change in the seventh inning, teammate Stephen Drew noticed that Reynolds was looking “glazed over,” according to Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic.
“I looked at him and was like, ‘What in the world? Get out of here,’ ” Drew said. “You don’t play around with that stuff.”
Once it was brought to the attention of Diamondbacks interim manager Kirk Gibson, he decided to remove Reynolds from the game, telling reporters, “it was obvious something was going on.”
Assistant general manager Peter Woodfork said that Reynolds was evaluated by a team doctor and is considered day-to-day. Hopefully it’s nothing more serious than that.
