Pittsburgh Pirates Baseball - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

PITTSBURGH (AP) – Pittsburgh Pirates pitcher Ryan Vogelsong remains hospitalized with swelling and multiple facial fractures, a day after the veteran took a 92 mph fastball to the head from Colorado pitcher Jordan Lyles.

Pirates trainer Todd Tomczyk said Tuesday that Vogelsong is “in good spirits” but added that doctors won’t be able to determine the extent of the damage around Vogelsong’s left eye until the swelling subsides.

Vogelsong was batting with the bases loaded in the bottom of the second Monday when a Lyles pitch caught Vogelsong flush. He remained on the ground for several minutes, though Tomczyk said Vogelsong didn’t lose consciousness and doesn’t have symptoms of a concussion.

The Pirates placed Vogelsong on the 15-day disabled list on Tuesday and recalled reliever A.J. Schugel from Triple-A Indianapolis.
