Matt Moore Hit In Face With Line Drive, Will Have X-Rays Monday

Matt Moore believes he’ll be o.k. after exiting this afternoon’s contest against the Boston Red Sox after getting struck in the face by a line drive off the bat of at of Xander Bogaerts.

After the game Moore told reporters that the line drive hit him right on mouth and he wasn’t sure if he deflected. He feels extremely lucky to leave with just a fat lip and stitches and that it was fortunate it happened on a Sunday, the Lord’s day.

He will get more X-rays Monday to see if jaw or roots of his teeth are fractured


What Role Did Pitching Mechanics Play In Aroldis Chapmans’ Injury?


I am a fan of all sports but am most passionate about baseball. From the fanatical to analytical, nothing about the game escapes me. Being born and raised in Northeast Ohio I'm very familiar with the heartache and pain that sports can bring and hope that I bring some understanding of the other side to my coverage. I will focus mostly on baseball but also cover the Tampa Bay Lightning, one of the most electric franchises in all of sports. Always willing to converse about any sport and have only one rule and that is be respectful at all times.
