Injury Scout - Guccione Exits in Kansas City

Chris Guccione left Monday's Athletics-Royals game and entered concussion protocol in Kansas City following a deflected pitched ball off his mask.

With one out and none on, Royals batter Ryan O'Hearn took a 1-2 83-mph splitter that bounced in the dirt and caromed directly into Guccione's traditional-style facemask; Guccione remained in the game for two additional at-bats before being removed during a mound visit.

1B Umpire and Crew Chief Mike Everitt took over as home plate umpire for the remainder of the contest, with 2B Umpire Lance Barrett moving to first base and 3B Umpire Bill Welke remaining at the hot corner.
