Segura shows no sign of concussion after HBP

April 28th, 2019

PHILADELPHIA -- Phillies shortstop got hit in the head with a 90 mph fastball in the second inning of Saturday night's 12-9 victory over the Marlins at Citizens Bank Park.

Thankfully, the pitch from Marlins right-hander Trevor Richards hit Segura’s helmet first. He left the field under his own power.

“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.”

Segura was not available to reporters after the game per concussion protocol.

It was a scary moment as Segura collapsed and remained prone on the dirt next to home plate for a couple of minutes. He finally raised his head to speak with Phillies assistant athletic trainer Shawn Fcasni. Segura eventually stood up and walked off the field.

"The ball gets away,” Richards said. “You never want to throw up at somebody's face like that. I hope he's all right. I just have to take a second and regroup. It's part of the game, really. You just have to get back after it, and attack the zone."

Sean Rodriguez took Segura’s place at first base and later in the field.

Segura just rejoined the team after being activated from the 10-day injured list because of a strained left hamstring.
