Cervelli: “It’s going to happen”
Francisco Cervelli said this morning that he’s feeling a lot better – no headaches or dizziness stemming from that fastball he took to the helmet on Sunday afternoon. He said that he’d catch a bullpen today and hit a little, and be ready to play on Friday.
“It’s going to happen,” Cervelli said. “You’ve got to stand up and keep playing baseball.”
Cervelli met with a neurologist yesterday for about 20 minutes and went through a battery of reflex tests. He guessed that this was his third or fourth concussion, also recalling a 2005 Gulf Coast League collision at home plate in addition to a November play in the Venezuelan Winter League.
“Three or four – I don’t remember,” Cervelli said. “I think a lot of the hits in my head have made me not remember everything.”
