By 05.13.17

On Friday night, Diamondbacks catcher Chris Iannetta suffered a scary injury his game against the Pirates after he took a 93 mph fastball to the face in the bottom of the ninth.

Iannetta was able to walk off the field on his own accord but was later taken to a hospital for evaluation.

While there has been some bad blood between the two teams, Diamondback manager Torey Lovullo didn’t feel that the Pirates pitcher was intentionally trying to hit Iannetta.
