MLB roundup: Yu Darvish hit in head during batting practice

Jamie Squire

The Rangers star is "fine" after taking a liner off the bat of Leonys Martin to the forehead. Elsewhere, a Mets rookie joined some pretty elite company.

Rangers ace Yu Darvish is OK despite being hit in the head by a line drive during batting practice on Tuesday, according to Fox Sports Southwest's Anthony Andro.

The ball, which was hit by outfielder Leonys Martin, glanced off the forehead of Darvish, who briefly kneeled down before refusing medical assistance, per Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News. Derek Holland attempted to catch the line drive but missed, though the ball made contact with his glove prior to hitting Darvish, who reportedly wasn't too fazed by the accident.

Darvish confirmed via Twitter after the incident that he was "fine."

deGrom joins impressive company

Mets rookie hurler Jacob deGrom struck out 11 Braves hitters in an 8-3 win on Tuesday. deGrom improved his ERA to 3.38 after tossing seven shutout innings. More impressive than that, though, is the company he joined by whiffing so many batters:
