Scary news from the Red Sox this evening, as the team announced that hitting coach Greg Colbrunn suffered a subarachnoid brain hemorrhage. He reported symptoms last night and is currently hospitalized in Cleveland.
Here’s the announcement from the team:
Greg was admitted to the Cleveland Clinic last night after experiencing dizziness prior to Wednesday’s Red Sox-Indians game. After evaluation, it was determined that Greg had suffered subarachnoid hemorrhage.
Red Sox medical director, Dr. Larry Ronan and physicians from the Cleveland Clinic expect Greg to make a good recovery. However, for the next few days, Greg will remain in Cleveland for further evaluation.
Colbrunn, 44, is in his second season as hitting coach with the Red Sox. He had a 13-year playing career in the majors between the Diamondbacks, Marlins, Braves, Expos, Twins, Rockies, and Mariners.
Get well soon, Greg.
