It was a scary scene at Coors Field on Sunday afternoon.
Kris Bryant left the series finale between the Cubs and Rockies early after getting hit in the head by a pitch in his first at-bat of the game.
Immediately, manager Joe Maddon ran out of the visiting dugout to hold onto a visibily dazed Bryant. Trainers looked at the Cubs third baseman for about a minute before helping him exit the game.

He has a small laceration above his eye from his sunglasses, but has shown no signs of a concussion.
He will continue to be evaluated.
Cubs hitting coaches Chili Davis and Andy Haines were ejected for protesting immediately after Bryant got hit by the pitch.
UPDATE: The Chicago Tribune's Mark Gonzales reported that Bryant is expected to travel with the team to Cleveland, but there doesn't appear to be more of an update yet.
Bryant expected to fly on team charter to Cleveland, will undergo more tests. Baez confirmed he was trying to prevent sign/location stealing at 2nd. Almora Jr. and Edwards still in one piece.— Mark Gonzales (@MDGonzales) April 22, 2018
