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:
Price: Chapman was up and joking with Brayan Pena this morning. They expect a full recovery. #reds— John Fay (@johnfayman) March 20, 2014
Kremchek on Chapman: Very mild concussion. Will have surgery. His eye is fine. Mentioned 6 to 8 weeks before he's pitching. #reds— John Fay (@johnfayman) March 20, 2014
Kremchek on Chapman: Where he got hit -- you don't want to say a good place -- but he's very lucky. He can be a normal human being. #reds— John Fay (@johnfayman) March 20, 2014
Aroldis Chapman will have surgery to insert a plate in his head later today. 'Absolutely' will be able to pitch this year, Kremchek says— ctrent (@ctrent) March 20, 2014
Kremchek said Chapman could be out of the hospital as soon as Saturday. #Reds— ctrent (@ctrent) March 20, 2014
