"It was about as bad as it looked. I didn't know what to expect watching the video, but it looked pretty rough. Pretty scary. Never really had something like that happen before. Just a popup, went after it. Obviously, it's tough to hear down there, so I didn't really hear anything and Pedro gave me a nice little forearm. Got me in the nose and a little bit under my eye, but mostly the nose. I feel fine right now and ready to go."

Sisco was already scheduled to sit on Wednesday with Angels lefty Andrew Heaney on the mound. But the fact that he avoided a more serious injury is good news.

"I just walked around a little bit to try and get my heart rate up," Sisco said of testing his condition on Wednesday afternoon. "Make sure there was no concussion symptoms this morning. All set. I feel good right now. Just a little sore in my nose area, but other than that, I'm fine."
