Usually when players get in the helmet, it’s on the side or on the back of it. It’s rare to see someone get hit square on the front of the helmet, but that’s what happened to Brewers shortstop Jean Segura.
Segura was squaring to bunt when Cubs pitcher Pedro Strop drilled him in the front of his helmet with a 95 mph fastball. Cubs catcher Miguel Montero immediately called for trainers to come over. Strop looked very concerned as Segura was down.
Miraculously enough, Segura was able to get up and take first base, but pulled himself from the game for obvious reasons. After the game, he told reporters that he felt “pretty good,” but it won’t be surprising if he misses a game or two.
