Happy Birthday, FrankieBy
Update (3:20pm): GM Brian Cashman said the CT scan was negative.
2:33pm: Birthday boy and backup catcher Frankie Cervelli left today’s exhibition game after being hit in the head by a pitch from Blue Jays’ reliever Zech Zinicola in the third inning. The impact was so hard, there was apparently an imprint of the seams left on his helmet. Cervelli suffered a concussion, and has been taken to a hospital for a CT scan. Remember, Cervelli suffered a head injury playing winter ball during the offseason.
We’ll update this post if there’s any more news.
