Javy Baez escapes serious injury after taking knee to head

The Chicago Cubs got a serious scare on Sunday when Javy Baez was kneed in the head on a slide, but the Cubs infielder appears to have escaped major injury.

Baez slid into second base headfirst on a pickoff attempt against the Atlanta Braves, and his head collided with Atlanta second baseman Ozzie Albies on the play. Baez tried to stay in the game, but could not do so.

CSN Chicago’s Tony Andracki reported after the game that Baez did not appear to be concussed, and a quick return sounded likely.

Baez is known for his flashy slide moves, but this wasn’t his cleanest. It’s good that he appears to be alright.
