Rangers pitcher Luke Farrell took a line drive to the face in the 9th inning of Saturday’s Spring Training game against the Giants.  He suffered a non-displaced fracture in his jaw.

Luke is the son of former Red Sox manager John Farrell.  The right-hander will see a specialist on Monday.


Farrell was hit by a shot from Giants prospect Jalen Miller in the ninth inning in Scottsdale, Arizona.

The right-hander fell to the ground but walked off the field under his own power, holding a towel to his jaw.

The Rangers say Farrell underwent a CT scan and X-rays, which revealed a non-displaced fracture in the jaw. He was released from the hospital a few hours later and is expected to visit a maxillofacial specialist Monday.

You hate to see a pitcher get hit with a line drive, but it is part of the game.  Hopefully Farrell is able to make a full recovery and is able to return to action shortly.
