The Mariners were given quite the scare earlier this afternoon when Jesus Montero was hit in the helmet by a pitch from Rockies’ right-hander Edgmer Escalona. Yes, the Rockies. Plenty of drama for them in the 24 hours for them, huh?
Montero immediately fell to the ground, but quickly got to his feet and began jawing with Escalona before being restrained by Mariners’ manager Eric Wedge and team trainer Rick Griffin. The good news is that Montero told Larry Stone of the Seattle Times that he feels fine and could play again as soon as tomorrow. It’s not clear whether the Mariners plan to send him for any tests as a precaution.
Montero went 1-for-7 last week against the A’s in the Opening Series in Japan. The 22-year-old is expected to split his time between the DH spot and catcher this season.
