Line drive off pitcher’s head made Corey Seager’s brother ‘super nauseous.’

Seattle Mariners third baseman Kyle Seager, the brother of Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager, found himself in an unfortunate situation over the weekend.

The Mariners were playing the Angels on Sunday when Seager hit a 105-mph line drive that struck the head of Angels pitcher Matt Shoemaker. Shoemaker left the game and was taken to a local hospital, where he had surgery to stop bleeding in his skull.

“I waited a couple days to talk to him,” Corey Seager said of his brother. “He was super nauseous during the game. Any time that happens it’s not good.”

The story has a happy ending: Shoemaker was released from the hospital Tuesday and was expected to fly back to Southern California.
