TEMPE, Ariz. -- Angels starter C.J. Wilson was struck in the left side of the head by a comebacker off the bat of Yorvit Torrealba during live batting practice at one of the back fields at the Tempe Diablo Stadium complex Tuesday. 

Wilson sprang back to his feet, told everyone he's fine and wanted to throw the 10 pitches that remained in his session. But the 33-year-old left-hander had some bleeding and was instead carted off the field, leaving to undergo a precautionary CT scan.

Wilson was texting back-and-forth with general manager Jerry Dipoto throughout and posted a lighthearted message on his Twitter account shortly thereafter, writing: "Everything is fine, except that pitch I threw. Shoulda caught it."

"He was very cognizant; he was aware of what was going on, what was happening, and never lost consciousness," Dipoto said. "The initial read is that neurologically he is fine."
