PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. (AP) - Toronto pitcher Drew Hutchinson left Sunday’s spring training game against the Tampa Bay Rays in the fifth inning after he appeared to be hit in the back of the head by catcher A.J. Jimenez’s throw to second base on an attempted stolen base.

The throw caromed into left field, allowing baserunner Brad Miller to continue to third base. Trainers spoke briefly with Hutchinson before the right-hander walked off the mound to the dugout, where sat on the bench for remainder of the half inning.

Before leaving the dugout and walking up the right first line to the visiting clubhouse at Charlotte Sports Park, Hutchinson said a few words to Jimenez and patted the catcher on the back.
