Milwaukee Brewers shortstop Willy Adames was hospitalized after he was struck by a foul ball.
Adames was in the Brewers’ dugout when teammate Brian Anderson hit a line drive foul ball during the second inning in a game against the San Francisco Giants Friday.
The ball appeared to hit Adames in the head or face, but Brewers manager Craig Counsell later revealed the shortstop did not suffer any fractures.
Counsell also said the team planned to place Adames on the injured list.
“It’ll be a concussion. It’ll be an IL,” the manager said.
The game was briefly halted to provide the training staff enough time to give Adames medical attention.

The situation seemed to impact the Brewers emotionally the rest of the night.
The Brewers committed two errors and imploded in the third inning when they gave up seven runs. The Giants blew out Milwaukee 15-1 at American Family Field.
