Misiewicz hit by Bae’s 161.9 mph pitch, condition improves…’discharged’

Pitcher Anthony Miesewitz (29-New York Yankees) is reportedly in good condition after being hit in the head by a pitch.

“Misiewicz has been released from the hospital, one day after being carted off the field after taking a hard hit to the head,” MLB.com, the official website of Major League Baseball (MLB), reported on Sunday. Miesewicz was struck in the head by a 100.6 mph (161.9 km/h) pitch from Bae Ji-hwan in the sixth inning of a game against the Pittsburgh Pirates on April 16. The pitch hit Misiewicz with a dull thud and bounced loudly before sailing into the right-field seats.

Miesewicz, who was in excruciating pain, was carted off the field after a brief treatment to stop further bleeding. After seeing Misiewicz at Allegheny General Hospital in Pittsburgh, Yankees manager Aaron Boone said, “He seemed to be in good spirits. He’s got some symptoms, but I think he’s doing pretty good, all things considered.” For now, Misiewicz has been placed on the seven-day concussion disabled list. He will return to New York for further evaluation.메이저사이트

Miesewicz, who made his big league debut in 2020, has a career (four-year) record of 8-9 with a 4.87 ERA in 33 appearances. This season, he went 2-1 with a 9.00 ERA in 11 games for the Detroit Tigers, Arizona Diamondbacks, and Yankees. The Yankees brought back bullpen arm Ian Hamilton to fill Misiewicz’s spot.
