Kansas City Royals pitcher Ryan Yarbrough suffered several head fractures after being hit in the face with a 106-mph line drive during Sunday’s game against the Athletics, the team announced Monday. 

The Royals placed Yarbrough on the 15-day injured list after he sustained “multiple non-displaced fractures” after taking one to the right side of his face off the bat of Oakland first baseman Ryan Noda. 

“We appreciate all the support for Ryan Yarbrough and the patience from fans and the media,” the Royals said in a statement posted to Twitter.

“We’re happy to share that Ryan is stable and improving and never lost consciousness. He sustained multiple non-displaced fractures, and we do not believe he will need surgery.” 

​​Royals manager Matt Quatraro described the injury as three non-displaced fractures in different spots around his right eye.

“He’s stable, improving,” he said before Monday’s game. “He never lost consciousness. He’s very aware of what’s going on around him. We don’t think at this time it will require surgery. He’s getting further testing, and we’ll have a better idea (of his prognosis) in the next 24 hours.”

Quatraro couldn’t say how much time Yarbrough would miss but said the team would have a better idea in the coming days. 

“If you think about broken bones that don’t require surgery, they heal within four to six weeks. But that’s just for those bones. He has to have activity and those types of things.”
