Rye’s Colin Moran, from a baseball family that has also produced B.J. and Rich Surhoff, took a nasty foul ball to the face while playing for the Houston Astros on Saturday night. Moran has been put on the 10 day DL list for a facial fracture, according to ESPN:
“Houston Astros third baseman Colin Moran is on the 10-day disabled list after he suffered a facial fracture during Saturday’s game, the team announced Sunday.
Moran left the 8-4 win over the Baltimore Orioles in the sixth inning, when he fouled an inside pitch from Orioles reliever Darren O’Day straight up and into the area near his left eye.
The 24-year-old rookie went down to the ground and grabbed his face, which had started to bleed. After a lengthy time down on the field with athletic trainers, including a brief moment when he attempted to stand up but couldn’t, he was carted off the field…
Moran was taken to a Baltimore hospital and remained there Sunday to receive treatment for the injury. The overnight stay in the hospital enabled him to shake some of the nausea, but he remained in pain.
He was playing in only his second career major league game after being called up Tuesday following an injury to All-Star shortstop Carlos Correa.”
MyRye.com wishes Moran a speedy recovery.
