[6/14/2016] Garrett Jones leaves after taking elbow to face

Garrett Jones was accidentally elbowed in the faced by teammate Itaru Hashimoto as the two converged on a fly ball hit by Toshihito Abe in the eighth inning against the Rakuten Eagles at Tokyo Dome. Jones was able to walk off the field on his own, but was in no condition to continue playing. Hashimoto also left the field for treatment (left elbow), but was able to return.

[UPDATE 6/16 @ 4:52am]

Jones did not suffer a concussion and could be in the starting line-up on Wednesday if he is feeling okay in the morning. He told reporters he could not hear Hashimoto calling for the ball because of the crowd.
