Starling Marte left tonight’s game in the top of the fifth inning after sliding head first into second base and hitting shortstop Yunel Escobar’s knee with his head. The Pittsburgh Pirates have announced that Marte was removed because of “concussion-like symptoms.” He is currently being treated and evaluated.
UPDATE 10:46 PM: Clint Hurdle said that Marte was taken to the hospital for a CT scan. There was no word on the result of the scan. I’m guessing there won’t be any news on this front until tomorrow morning.
