Rangers’ Hurley recovering from hit comebacker
The Texas Rangers say minor league pitcher Eric Hurley has a
mild concussion and a small fracture after being struck on the
right side of a head by a one-hop comebacker.
The Rangers said Hurley was released from a New Orleans hospital
Wednesday but won’t be allowed to travel until later this week. He
was hit Monday night while pitching for Triple-A Round Rock at New
Hurley will then go to Texas for further evaluation. It is
unknown when he will be able to resume baseball activities.
Hurley, a first-round pick by Texas in 2004, made five major
league starts in 2008. The right-hander missed 2009 after surgery
on a torn rotator cuff and last year after surgery twice on a
broken left wrist.
