UPDATED: Aroldis Chapman takes line drive to face

We'll call this a recap of sorts, as the game is now over.

Aroldis Chapman was hit directly in the face off the bat of Kansas City's Salvador Perez. He was down for several minutes after being taken off the field on a stretcher. Reportedly, he was moving his legs on the ground, so it is not believed that he lost consciousness.

The managers and the field staff decided to abandon the rest of the game after the play.

We'll have more updates as we get them, although I'm not sure we'll hear anything tonight.

Man, I hope he's okay.

The Reds and Dr. Tim Kremchek addressed the media in Arizona and the news from the writers is all good:
