New York Yankees outfielder Oscar González suffered a right orbital fracture and will remain in Mexico City for further evaluation after he fouled a ball off his face in the second inning of a Monday night’s exhibition loss to Diablos Rojos.

González got jammed on an inside pitch and the ball ricocheted off the handle of his bat directly up into his face, knocking off his helmet. He was sitting upright as he was driven off the field in a cart.


The Yankees said González was treated at the ballpark for a right eye contusion. Team physician Dr. Carlos Smith accompanied González to Centro Medico ABC in Mexico City for further evaluation and testing.

Gonzalez will stay in the hospital overnight with Brandon Rodriguez, one of the organization’s athletic trainers, according to the team.

The Yankees loss both games in Mexico


Jose Trevino had two hits and two RBIs for New York in its 8-5 loss. Luis Serna, a 19-year-old right-hander from San Luis Colorado, Mexico, was charged with five runs and four hits in 2 1/3 innings.

Anthony Volpe and Giancarlo Stanton were among a handful of Yankees regulars who made the trip to Mexico City for the pair of exhibition games. New York also lost 4-3 to Diablos Rojos on Sunday.
