Alex Cobb Struck In Head By Line Drive (UPDATE)S

During today's Rays-Royals game, pitcher Alex Cobb was hit in the head by a line drive that came off of Eric Hosmer's bat. He left the field on a stretcher.

UPDATE: The initial outlook looks good.

Per the excellent @TampaBayTK, Alex Cobb was hit in right ear, conscious the whole time, "all signs are good for now."
