The Tigers are on a tear at the plate, hitting 10 home runs this week -- second-most in the majors behind the Red Sox -- after poking just five in 2018 beforehand. Nicholas Castellanos hit his first homer of the season, a good development as they wait for him to adjust to RF, where he's already made five defensive mistakes this season (per Sports Info Solutions).

Tigers' Zimmermann bruises jaw when hit by Kipnis' liner

Detroit Tigers pitcher Jordan Zimmermann bruised the right side of his jaw when hit in the face by a line drive off the bat of Cleveland's Jason Kipnis on Wednesday night and left after two batters in the Indians' 5-1 win.

William Weinbaum ESPN 

Jordan Zimmermann is the latest pitcher to be hit in the head by a line drive. His injury — a bruised jaw — would not have been prevented by headgear worn (or likely considered) by any MLB pitchers. Several wear carbon-fiber cap inserts, but those offer no protection against shots below the cap line.
