Video: Bartolo Colon Hospitalized After Getting Hit in the Face with a Line Drive

| by Alex Groberman

Bartolo Colon had to be hospitalized on Sunday after a line drive hit him straight in the face. While he was able to walk off the field under his own power, the terrifying way that the ball collided with his mouth immediately reminded folks of hits to the head that Doug Fister and Brandon McCarthy took over the past few months.

Colon suffered the injury during a Dominican Winter League showdown.

Colon was suspended for 50 games this past August after he failed a drug test.
