Yankees OF Oscar Gonzalez taken to hospital with eye contusion after fouling ball off face in Mexico

MEXICO CITY (AP) - New York Yankees outfielder Oscar Gonzalez was taken to the hospital after fouling a ball off his face Monday night during an exhibition game in Mexico against the Diablos Rojos.

Gonzalez got jammed on an inside pitch and the ball ricocheted off the handle of his bat directly up into his face, knocking off his helmet. He was sitting upright as he was driven off the field in a cart.

The Yankees said Gonzalez was treated at the ballpark for a right eye contusion by team physician Dr. Carlos Smith and Dr. Elisa Saleme, the head physician assigned to the two-game series. Smith accompanied Gonzalez to Centro Medico ABC in Mexico City for further evaluation and testing, the club said.
