NEW YORK -- Yankees (http://www.sportsline.com/mlb/teams/page/NYY) pitcher Carl Pavano (http://www.sportsline.com/mlb/players/playerpage/11056) was hit in the head by Melvin Mora's line drive and left New York's game against Baltimore in the third inning Sunday.

Pavano was taken to Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center for precautionary studies, the Yankees said. When he came out of the game, he was alert.

One pitch after first baseman Jason Giambi dropped Mora's foul pop for an error, Mora lined the ball up the middle. It ricocheted off Pavano and landed in foul territory behind first base for a single that sent Brian Roberts from first to third.

Pavano remained standing, but immediately was replaced by Tanyon Sturtze.

Man..the thing that concerns me about this is the damage he may have taken to his TMJ. I deal with lots of patients that get into fights or take other trauma to that joint, and it may really affect him. He was having trouble opening and closing his mouth when it initially happened. Hopefully he didn't take too much trauma on that joint, because it can end up requiring surgery to correct.
