Injury - Jeff Kellogg Out After Hit to the Head

Jeff Kellogg was injured during Friday night's Mets-Braves game after taking a foul ball off the bat of Nick Markakis and into the lower left portion of Kellogg's traditional-style facemask. After caroming off the mask, the ball struck Kellogg's left shoulder.

During the ensuing inning break, crewmate Alan Porter changed into his plate equipment and replaced Kellogg for the remainder of the game and series. Kellogg is listed as day-to-day with an undisclosed injury.

Greg Gibson took over for Kellogg at third base on Saturday, serving as acting crew chief with John Tumpane, Lance Barksdale and Alan Porter. Gibson previously officiated with Dana DeMuth's crew (Ed Hickox, Nic Lentz) in Cincinnati. Mike Estabrook was brought in to replace Gibson in CIN.

Kellogg previously suffered "a pretty bad migraine" after taking a foul ball off the bat of former Angels batter Torii Hunter in 2012; he exited that ballgame after the knock as well.
