Atlanta Braves utility player Charlie Culberson suffered “multiple facial fractures” after a 91 mph pitch struck him in the face during a bunt attempt in Saturday’s playoff-clinching win over the Washington Nationals, the team announced.
The 30-year-old had been cleared to travel back to Atlanta, where team doctors will assess the next steps in his treatment, the Braves said Sunday. There was no mention on when he could return to the field.
The article goes on to state the following:
The scary moment came during the seventh inning of the 10-1 victory at Nationals Park. With the game tied 1-1, Culberson pinch hit for starting pitcher Mike Foltynewicz with two on and no out when Washington reliever Fernando Rodney’s first-pitch fastball struck him on the right cheekbone.
