Didi Gregorius was hit in the head by a pitch from Josh Outman during the seventh inning of the Arizona Diamondbacks’ 6-3 loss to the Colorado Rockies on Friday night. Outman had a 2-2 count on Gregorius and let a 93 mph fastball get away from him. The Rockies were up 6-3 at the time and the bases were empty, so with a 2-2 count there is little doubt it was unintentional. Catcher Wilin Rosario was even setting up low and away for the pitch. Gregorius left the game and was termed day-to-day with a right temple contusion. The Diamondbacks said he was undergoing a CT scan and that he could end up on the 7-day DL with a concussion. Gregorius had been killing the ball since being called up by Arizona on April 18. He was batting .407 and had a hit in all seven games he had played. The 23-year-old was acquired by the Diamondbacks in the 3-way offseason trade that also saw top pitching prospect Trevor Bauer sent to Cleveland and Shin-Soo Choo dealt to Cincinnati. Diamondbacks GM Kevin Towers said at the time that Gregorius reminded him of a young Derek Jeter. He was widely mocked at the time for the comparison, but Gregorius has looked great so far. Hopefully he’ll recover from the hit. Getting hit in the head is tough for players to comeback from.
