The last thing the Cubs needed was an injury scare for their replacement for injured star shortstop Javier Baez, yet that's exactly what they got. Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Adrian Houser ran a pitch high and in, drilling Addison Russell in the head and sending him toppling to the dirt.
There's simply nothing as terrifying as watching a major league player take a pitch right off the head. It was good to see that Brewers catcher Yasmani Grandal was right there to tend to him before the training staff made its way onto the field.
Russell stayed in the game and even managed to steal a base for the Cubs after taking his base, but he gave fans everywhere a massive scare.
