Yu Darvish took a baseball off the head while throwing in the outfield on Tuesday. From The Dallas Morning News' Evan Grant:
... On Tuesday, RHP Yu Darvish was hit in the head by a line drive while throwing in the outfield. Darvish was doing some flat ground work when Leonys Martin hit a ball in batting practice that tipped off Derek Holland's glove and glanced off Darvish's head.
... Darvish is expected to be seen by team medical director Dr. Keith Meister around 6 p.m., but there was no indication that the incident was anything more than an unfortunate misplay in the outfield. He is expected to make his scheduled start on Wednesday.
