When you’re playing baseball, you should always have your head on a swivel, especially when people are batting. The baseball can come at you — just ask Jordan Montgomery.

The New York Yankees pitcher, who was supposed to start on Sunday, was reportedly hit in the head from a live drive. He was signing autographs, while the Boston Red Sox were taking batting practice.

Now, his start is up in the air, as the Yankees medical staff examine the pitcher. Given the Yankees recent injuries to C.C. Sabathia and Masahiro Tanaka, they can not afford to have Thompson miss a start.

He was recently recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders on Friday. He replaces Sabathia in the starting rotation, who was put on the 10-day disabled list on the same day.

In the last update by Rosenthal, he said it appears that Montgomery will be OK. The 24-year-old was 7-6 this season with the Yankees. He has a 4.05 ERA with 111 strikeouts and 35 walks in 115 2/3 innings.
