Description: Will Rhymes collapsed at first base moments after getting hit by a pitch in last night's 2-1 win over the Red Sox. Rhymes lost consciousness briefly before being helped off the field. Rhymes seemed fine and was able to talk to reporters after the game about what happened. He's day-to-day.
Insight: It was a pretty frightening moment as Rhymes fell into his first base coach's arms after experiencing an adrenaline rush following the hit by pitch. Franklin Morales hit Rhymes on the arm with a fastball, bruising Rhymes' wrist. Rhymes had been hitting .429 over his last four games before the injury.
