Toronto Blue Jays reliever T.J. House has been released from a hospital, one day after he was hit on the head by a line drive during a spring training game.

“Obviously, it was definitely a rough day yesterday,” House said.

“Whirlwind experience. And I’m doing a lot better than I thought I would be doing today.”

House was taken off the field in an ambulance Friday. He was struck in the ninth inning of a game against the Detroit Tigers and taken to Lakeland Regional Medical Center.

Test results were normal and he was held overnight for observation, according to the Blue Jays.

“No fractures of the skull or anything, which is great, especially for the force it took,” House said.


Masahiro Tanaka seven batters in four perfect innings — including his first six hitters — and has not given up a run in three spring training appearances.

Gary Sanchez hit a wind-aided two-run homer, Matt Holliday had a three-run drive and prospect Gleyber Torres added a solo homer.

Tigers starter Daniel Norris gave up two runs, three hits and a walk in 3 2/3 innings.
