Injury Scout - Guccione Leaves DH

Chris Guccione left the second game of Wednesday's Rangers-Indians doubleheader in Cleveland after a foul ball off the mask.

With two out and one on in the bottom of the 2nd inning, Indians batter Jason Kipnis fouled a 96-mph 0-1 fastball from Rangers pitcher Lance Lynn into Guccione's traditional-style facemask; Guccione remained in the contest until the middle of the fourth inning, upon which time he left the field.

3B Umpire John Libka assumed duties behind home plate with 1B Umpire/Crew Chief Brian O'Nora remaining at first base and 2B Umpire Mark Ripperger sliding over to third.

Relevant Injury History: Guccione has a history of head trauma as a plate umpire.
