DEVELOPING: Cubs Tyler Colvin Speared By Broken Bat

((HT: WGN/MLB/MLBAM/Youtube))

Chicago Cubs outfielder Tyler Colvin is in stable condition at a Miami hospital after he was hit in the upper chest by a piece of a bat during Sunday's game in Miami against the Florida Marlins.

With Welington Castillo's at the plate, the swing and impact against the baseball sent a good portion of the shattered upper-third down the third-base line when the bat punctured Colvin's chest.

The Cubs say Colvin was sent to a local trauma center where he was being treated.

The portion of the bat hit him in the upper left side of the chest. It punctured but did not stick in his chest. Doctors are taking X-rays, and the wound itself has been sealed. The Cubs say there is minimal external bleeding, although you can see that Colvin was pretty scared by the whole thing...

Colvin may remain in Miami overnight for observation.

Here's the play until it gets pulled...
