Texas Rangers right-hander Luke Farrell had his jaw broken by a line drive during a spring training game against the San Francisco Giants.
Farrell was struck on the right side of his jaw Saturday by a ball off the bat of Jalen Miller with one out in the ninth inning.
The Rangers say Farrell had a CT scan and X-rays, which revealed a non-displaced fracture in the jaw. He was released from the hospital a few hours later and is expected to visit a maxillofacial specialist Monday.
