From Larry Brown Sports:

Rays second baseman Will Rhymes collapsed into the arms of his first base coach after being hit by a 95mph pitch during the 8th inning of Wednesday’s game. Rhymes was hit by a 2-2 fastball from Red Sox reliever Franklin Morales directly on the forearm. He immediately went down in pain, but he managed to make his way down to first base. Shortly after reaching base, Rhymes took a few steps into foul ground where he passed out in the arms of coach George Hendrick.

Surprisingly, X-rays were negative and Rhymes is considered day-to-day. The team believes he passed out because of an “adrenaline rush” after being hit.

It’s easy to see why he was in shock after being hit — look at the welt it left on his forearm:

Rhymes was in good spirits after the game and when he woke up before being carted off the field. Reporters say he called himself “Batman” after being asked who he was. Calling himself “Batman” was a joke and reference to an old commercial. He also was laughing and joking when he discussed the situation with reporters after the game:

  • Typical baseball/basketball sissy. Hit in the arm with a pitch, out day to day. Hockey players get hit in the mouth with a puck, spit out teeth and take their next shift.
  • you sir are a jerk. to bad you will never sit in that box and a 95mph hits you square on the arm. you probably got beaned in the head at a little league game and still have head problems form a 80mph beaner. at 95mph a hard ball potentially has power to shatter the bone.
  • And they skate up and down the ice for 30 seconds and have to sit down because they're tired...
  • more like 1 1/2 on average. you know why? because they're giving their all, while on ice, and end up out there 3 minutes later. In baseball, they stand around for the most part. Basketball, they jog...Hockey, you have to go all out. Learn your **** first.
  • hockey is a womans sport
  • Actually, about 1-1 1/2 on average. In baseball, they stand around for the most part. Basketball, they jog..sometimes. But in hockey, they go all out, every single shift. And end up back out in less than 3 minutes.
  • seriously. i've been saying this for years
  • dbag
  • Typical baseball sissy are you kidding me. Thank goodness that he doesnt have a serious injury. My daughter plays is a softball little league pitcher and she has hit a girl before. They fall in pain. Now imagine a 95 mph ball, dont even want to... Jerk...
  • You do know that hockey is full of **** right? Roid'ed up men who failed at figure skating. They are angry because they dont accept themselves.
  • The Lateral Cutaneous nerve of the forearm (continuation of the musculocutaneous nerve) is purely sensory and a 5oz object traveling at 95mph impacting in the right place on that nerve would cause instant blinding pain. Hit a nerve in the right area with enough pressure, could cause enough pain to make someone briefly lose orientation, maybe not lose consciousness, but definitely incapacitate someone for a short time. Ask any Martial Artist, or Spock.
  • what would happen with the funny bone syndrome. lol did you hear the announcer foul ball hit. while he trooted to first. priceless.
  • by the way the giggling with reporters after the game was an adrelin rush of shock
  • I was on an ambulance call to a little league game when the kid was hit in the hand. He got to first passed out and we got called to take teh kid to the hospital. Based on what the ER doc told us it was a case of physiological shock. He explained it as occuring often when people experience severe phyical pain or recieve an emotional stimuli, such as a loved one dying unexpectedly. Essentially adreneline speeds up the heart and the breathing where its not adequately moving oxyginated blood- BP drops, person gets dizzy and then faints. It would be similar to a person who faints from aortic valve issues as well.
  • this just in, mlb has just authorized players uniform choices to include skirts and tube tops. and msaz103, your defense of this candy a$$ is that a 12 yr old girl fell out from a pitch?
    your kidding right?
