Phillies shortstop Jean Segura left Saturday night’s game against the Marlins in the second inning after taking a 90 mph fastball to the helmet.  The fastball knocked him off of his feet and left him face down in the dirt.

Segura was eventually able to get to his feet and he left the game under his own power.

Phillies Manager Gabe Kapler gave an update on Segura after the 12-9 win.  He says the shortstop is in the concussion protocol, although they don’t believe he has one.


“Jean’s doing fine,” Phillies manager Gabe Kapler said. “He went through a concussion test, and we don’t think he has one. We’ll reevaluate him tomorrow, but so far, so good.”

These things happen.  It’s why they wear helmets and it sounds like Segura’s helmet did its job. 

Segura avoided taking the pitch to the face and seems to have avoided a head injury.  Hopefully he’ll be back in the lineup soon.
