Rays' Minor-Leaguer Tyler Zombro Progressing After Being Hit in Head by Line Drive

Tampa Bay Rays minor leaguer Tyler Zombro is "still progressing in the right direction," according to Rays manager Kevin Cash.

Cash told reporters Zombro is able to get out of his hospital bed and walk around with some assistance.

The right-handed reliever was pitching for the Triple-A Durham Bulls on Friday night when he took a line drive to the head. The Bulls and Norfolk Tides called the game in the eighth inning due to his injury.
