Jose Sreu of the White Sox, Hunter Dozier of the Royals had a terrifying collision
A terrifying moment in Chicago on Friday evening.
White Sox first-legged Jose Abreu and third-base Royals were in a terrifying collision with Hunter Dozier when Dozier started the first run.
Dozier bent his head and struggled to reach the bag, chasing the wing ball from Abreu’s defensive position. The two players did not notice each other before colliding 30 meters from the home plate.
Repeating the collision slowly shows that it was rougher than it initially seemed:
Both players stopped on the field after the attack ended; Abreu held his head, while Dozier stood still for a while before getting up.
Abreu and Dozier would leave the match after the match. Royal would announce that Dozier is daily with quad contamination and neck discomfort.
Hunter Dozier has been removed from today’s game with a quad touch and neck discomfort. It’s everyday. #King
