Yarbrough suffered a head fracture injury Sunday when he was hit in the head by a 106-mph comebacker during an at-bat with Oakland Athletics first baseman Ryan Noda during the sixth inning Sunday at Kauffman Stadium.
Scary situation today.— Ben Verlander (@BenVerlander) May 7, 2023
My friend and former teammate at ODU, Ryan Yarbrough, got drilled in the face with a 106mph comebacker.
Hoping everything is ok. He was able to walk off.
Yarbrough was able to walk off the field under his own power after being attended to by medical staff.
Yarbrough was placed on the 15-day injured list the following day with the team saying that Yarbrough was "stable and improving and never lost consciousness" after suffering "multiple non-displaced fractures."
