    Does anyone know how Mike Hessman of the Orix Buffaloes is doing? He was hit in the head by a pitch about three weeks ago. He hasn’t played in any preseason games.

      No. I read a slightly different version that didn’t include Hessman in the article.

      Thanks for the heads up. Based on what’s written in the article, it would seem as though Hessman is fine.
