Angels left-hander C.J. Wilson appears to be fine after getting hit on the left side of his head while throwing batting practice to teammates at Tempe Diablo Stadium on Tuesday.
According to reports, Wilson was struck by a ball hit by catcher Yorvit Torrealba and was bleeding on the side of his head but walked off the field under his own power and was taken in for precautionary tests.
He tweeted later that he was OK, but Wilson’s teammate Josh Hamilton wasn’t as lucky after straining his left calf during a baserunning drill.
Hamilton is on crutches and has to stay off his feet for the next few days.
Everything is fine, except that pitch I threw. Shoulda caught it. Thanks for the #PMA – lesson is to not pitch to contact! Haha
