expected to leave the field under his own power Tuesday night.
But a line drive off the bat of Tampa Bay Rays outfielder Desmond Jennings changed all that.
With one out in the second inning of Toronto's 6-4 win
, the Blue Jays starting pitcher was drilled in the left side of his head in by a fiercely hit ball by Jennings, and dropped to the mound in obvious pain.
The lefty was immediately attended to by team trainers after the frightening incident and lay motionless, face down, just in front of the mound for several minutes. He appeared to be bleeding from his ear, and appeared to move his legs before being placed on a stretcher
and taken off the field.
He was reportedly conscious en route to the hospital.
Several Rays and Blue Jays players showed concern, some standing with their hands on their heads in seeming disbelief.
