¡¡¡¡ARLINGTON ¨C Triple-A Durham pitcher Tyler Zombro is in stable condition at Duke University Hospital after being hit in the head with a line drive in the eighth inning of Thursday night¡¯s game, taken off the field on a stretcher and transported to the hospital in an ambulance.

¡¡¡¡The Rays provided the following update Friday on Zombro¡¯s condition:

¡¡¡¡¡°As of this morning, Tyler remains under the care of the nurses and doctors at Duke University Hospital. The updates from overnight have been positive, and he remains in stable condition. We are overwhelmed by the support for Tyler and the wishes for his full and speedy recovery from fans and the baseball community alike. We will provide additional updates as he progresses.¡±

¡¡¡¡Rays manager Kevin Cash said he talked to Durham manager Brady Williams on Thursday night after hearing about the frightening incident involving Zombro during Tampa Bay¡¯s flight from New York to Texas.

¡¡¡¡¡°Certainly said it was a pretty jarring experience, maybe the scariest thing he’s witnessed on a baseball field,¡± Cash said. ¡°It was very concerning. The good news is that, by all accounts and the reports, that Tyler is recovering well. I think things at this point are going about as well as we could all hope for, so that’s tremendous.

¡¡¡¡¡°The next 24-48 hours, we want to keep hearing that good news. But right now, we feel very fortunate and lucky to be where Tyler’s at and just continue to hope for the best for him.”

¡¡¡¡Durham¡¯s game against Norfolk at Durham Bulls Athletic Park was called in the eighth inning. On Friday, the Bulls announced that they had postponed Friday¡¯s scheduled game with the approval of MLB ¡°in light of the events of Thursday evening¡¯s contest.¡±

¡¡¡¡¡°What they witnessed was very scary for a guy that they care a lot about, and can totally understand that if their mind is just not there right now,¡± Cash said. ¡°To postpone a game, then, makes sense for those players.¡±

¡¡¡¡Please pray consistently for my teammate Tyler Zombro.

¡¡¡¡On a 1-2 pitch, Norfolk catcher Brett Cumberland hit a comebacker off the side of Zombro’s head. The 26-year-old right-hander fell to the ground and was quickly surrounded by concerned teammates, coaches and the team trainer.

¡¡¡¡Medical personnel were called in and Zombro’s wife, Moriah, who was in the ballpark, was escorted onto the field. Zombro was put onto a stretcher and rushed off the field to a waiting ambulance beyond the outfield fence. Zombro’s teammates huddled in concern while Cumberland looked on from first base. The umpires suspended the game with Norfolk leading Durham, 12-4, but it was later deemed official.

¡¡¡¡Zombro, 26, has been in the Rays’ organization since signing as an undrafted free agent out of George Mason University. He has an 11-4 record with a 2.79 ERA and 144 strikeouts in 177 1/3 innings in the Minor Leagues. The Rays’ baseball operations department named the right-hander their Minor League Reliever of the Year in 2019, and he spent this past spring in big league camp for the second straight year.

¡¡¡¡NOW is the time to fully utilize the power of prayer. Love you Z https://t.co/84xExvIMRU

¡¡¡¡In addition to his pitching career, Zombro ¨C who studied pre-physical therapy with a concentration in leadership and a minor in sport management and kinesiology — has committed himself to helping younger athletes get the most out of their ability. He previously served as the lead trainer at R&D Baseball in Washington, D.C., where he consulted with college teams and helped other athletes train remotely, and is now the director of performance at Tread Athletics.
