Diamondbacks’ Chris Iannetta bloodied after being hit by pitch in face

Left tackle. As much as I believe the Broncos should make a push for Tony Romo, whoever is playing quarterback must have his blindside protected. King Dunlap, who Cheap Basketball Jerseys UK played under new Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy in San Diego, and ex-Denver starter Ryan Clady are veteran free agent options, but the Broncos may instead wait, hoping to land a left tackle in a draft analysts consider weak for offensive line talent.

Inside linebacker. Kansas City’s defensive play spiraled last December once Derrick Johnson suffered a season-ending Achilles injury and no remotely comparable replacement in the wings. Unfortunately, there is no guarantee the 34-year-old Johnson will regain his previous form. The Chiefs are in the market for a modest veteran signing. The Kansas City Star reported that Gerald Hodges (San Francisco) recently took a free-agent visit but left without a contract.

In a less-than-ideal moment in the Diamondbacks-Pirates matchup from Friday night, D-Backs catcher Chris Iannetta took a fastball to the face.

The pitch got away from Pirates reliever Johnny Barbato, and caught Iannetta flush in the mush.

Thankfully, Iannetta was able to walk off the field under his own power, though bloodied. Apparently, he lost a tooth on the play.

Watching slow motion, Chris Iannetta just visibly had a tooth knocked out of his mouth hit by a 93 MPH fastball from Pirates Barbato.cubs_1854
