Injury - David Rackley Leaves Twins-Nats Game

HP Umpire David Rackley left Sunday's Grapefruit League action after taking a foul ball off the facemask.

With none out and none on in the top of the 8th inning of the Twins-Nationals game, Twins batter Daniel Palka fouled a fastball from Nationals pitcher Sammy Solis into Rackley's traditional-style facemask; Rackley was removed from the game for precautionary reasons.

Rackley was replaced behind home plate by 1B Umpire Chris Conroy, while base umpires Mike Estabrook (2B => 1B) and Shane Livensparger (3B) officiated the corners for the remainder of the contest.

Rackley most recently was injured by a foul ball on May 23, 2016.

Date of Injury: March 5, 2017 | Return to Play: March 9, 2017 | Total Time Absent: 3 Days.
