Royals catcher Matt Treanor leaves after collision
Question of the Day
CLEVELAND (AP) - Catcher Matt Treanor of the Kansas City Royals left the game after he was hit in the head in a plate collision with the Indians' Matt LaPorta.
The Royals announced that Treanor will be placed on the seven-day concussion list. He was taken to a hospital for a CT scan.
LaPorta tagged up on a fly ball to left fielder Alex Gordon, whose one-hop throw home beat the runner. Treanor fielded it and was in position for the tag when LaPorta tried to bowl him over. His right shoulder appeared to hit Treanor in the face.
LaPorta was called out by umpire Laz Diaz, while Treanor remained motionless, face down in the dirt. Pitcher Felipe Paulino retrieved the ball, called time, and Royals manager Ned Yost and trainers came out to attend to Treanor.
They wiped blood from the catcher's face. Treanor walked to the dugout and was replaced by Brayan Pena.
