Injury - Dale Scott Exits Game on Foul to Lower Mask

Umpire Dale Scott exited Saturday's game on a foul ball to the lower facemask in Arizona.

With none out in the bottom of the 1st inning of the Dodgers-Diamondbacks game, D'Backs batter  Jean Segura hit a foul ball off a 91 mph fastball from Dodgers pitcher Brandon McCarthy back into the lower jaw/throat portion of Scott's traditional-style facemask.

Scott left the contest and was replaced behind home plate by 1B Umpire Lance Barrett alongside 2B Umpire Bob Davidson and 3B Umpire Dan Iassogna, as Davidson moved over to handle first-base duties and Iassogna assumed the role of acting crew chief. Scott was replaced by AAA call-up Stu Scheurwater on Sunday.

Scott most recently left a game due to injury on June 19, 2016 as the result of a foul ball to the groin during the Blue Jays-Orioles Father's Day tilt. He also suffered a game-ending hand injury on a pitched ball during a 2015 Cubs-Giants Spring Training game and a foul ball-to-mask injury in August 2013.
