Blue Jays rookie shortstop Bo Bichette says he’s feeling better but trying to “be smart” about his recovery from a head injury.
Bichette was removed from Thursday’s game against the Orioles in Baltimore in the bottom of the seventh inning after getting hit in the helmet by a pitch in the sixth.
“More tired than usual, a little bit nauseous at times, but every day I’ve been better, so that’s all I can hope for,” Bichette said when asked about his symptoms before Saturday’s game against the Yankees.
“I never had any head injuries and it sucks. And obviously you’ve gotta be more careful. You’ve only got one brain, so I’m just trying to be as smart as I can with it.”
Bichette was hit by a pitch from Gabriel Ynoa in the top of the sixth inning but initially stayed in the game after being assessed on the field by trainers.
