Rather scary news from the Dodgers. Reliever Pedro Baez was unavailable yesterday because he was hit in the back of the head by an errant throw in the bullpen. The throw was a warmup toss from Adam Liberatore, which went over the bullpen catcher’s mitt and struck Baez in the back of the head.

Baez was examined and does not appear to have a concussion. Dave Roberts said he’d be reassessed today and could be available to pitch if he’s OK.

Careful out there, y’all.
