Injury Scout - Tony Randazzo Exits Early After Foul Ball

HP Umpire Tony Randazzo left Sunday's all-Chicago exhibition game after an early foul ball to the mask at Wrigley Field.

In the bottom of the 1st inning of the White Sox-Cubs pre-season contest, Cubs batter Javier Baez fouled a first-pitch 91.5-mph cutter from White Sox pitcher Drew Anderson into Randazzo's traditional-style facemask atop Randazzo's COVID surgical-style mask. Randazzo remained in the game through the first two innings of play and left the field thereafter; he had originally been scheduled to officiate between four and five innings.

The crew's 5th umpire, Ben May, entered the ballgame as a substitute home plate umpire to begin the 3rd inning, with Mark Carlson, Alex Tosi, and John Tumpane remaining on the bases.

Relevant Injury History: Randazzo was hit directly by a pitch in May 2017.
