ST. PETERSBURG -- First Jeremy Hellickson got hit in the head by a batting practice home run in Detroit. Now it seems Matt Moore had his own troubles during pre-game warm-ups.
On Thursday morning, the right side of Moore's face was visibly swollen after getting hit while playing catch with David Price prior to Wednesday night's game.
"I think it deflected off the side of my glove," Moore said. "Pretty wicked, man."
Moore treated his injury with ice and the rookie left-hander said he was fine.
