The Cincinnati Reds’ star closer Aroldis Chapman was hit by a line drive in an exhibition game Wednesday night against the Kansas City Royals. The game was in the bottom of the 6th with two outs when Salvador Perez’s hit struck Chapman in the face. The game was called due to the nature of the injury.
The Royals were winning 6-3.
Fans on Twitter saw Chapman move his legs and arms before being carted off.
