Oakland Athletics pitcher Brandon McCarthy was released from hospital on Tuesday, less than a week after getting hit in the head by a line drive in a game against the Los Angeles Angels. McCarthy suffered a epidural hemorrhage, brain contusion and skull fracture on the play and underwent two hours of surgery.

McCarty’s wife shared this photo on twitter, showing the scar left after surgery. McCarthy is expected to make a full recovery and plans to return to baseball once he regains full strength.
