Sports Minute: Rangers' Calhoun hit in mouth by fastball, taken to hospital
SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) - Texas Rangers outfielder Willie Calhoun was hit in the mouth by a fastball Sunday and taken to a hospital. The left-handed hitting Calhoun crumbled after being struck in the jaw by a fastball from Los Angeles Dodgers left-hander Julio Urias in the first inning of a spring training game. Calhoun fell on his back, put his hands over his face and was eventually carried off on a cart. The Rangers said he was taken to a hospital. A fourth-round pick by the Dodgers in 2015, Calhoun was acquired by Texas in a trade for Yu Darvish in 2017 and established himself in the Rangers' lineup last year.
