    NEW YORK — Yankees rookie pitcher Bryan Mitchell was hit in the head by a line drive on Monday night (Tuesday, Manila time), forcing him off the field with a towel over his bloody face.

    The Yankees said he was taken to a hospital, but didn't give a report on his condition.

    Mitchell was struck in the second inning by a liner off the bat of Eduardo Nunez of the Minnesota Twins at Yankee Stadium.

    The 24-year-old pitcher was knocked down, and the ball caromed into center field for a single. The Yankees and their medical staff quickly rushed to the mound.

    Mitchell was on his knees for over a minute, then two trainers flanked him as he walked off. Mitchell needed help getting down the dugout steps because the towel was covering his face.

    Nunez, players on the both teams and the crowd applauded as Mitchell exited his third major league start.
