.gif | Alex Avila Leaves the Game After Getting Hit with Errant Foul Tip

.gif after the jump

Avila looked a little woozy after the play and was immediately taken out of the game. After a moment’s delay, Scherzer got out of the inning on the next pitch and replacement catcher Gerald Laird doubled in his first at bat. There is no word yet on whether Avila was taken out for precautionary reasons or if there are concussion-like symptoms to be worried about.

    Poor Alex. I was stunned by this. I hope he is okay. I saw Skipper laughing w/ him in the dugout. Did he need stitches?
