Detroit Tigers pitcher Jeff Ferrell left Monday's game against the Oakland Athletics after being struck in the head by a Ryon Healy line drive.

Ferrell took the liner off the back of his head, but remained on his feet. The ball, meanwhile, shot into foul territory, resulting in a single for Healy. 

Ferrell departed soon after, and was taken to the hospital for precautionary purposes:

Ferrell entered the night with a 6.23 ERA in 8 ⅔ innings in the majors this season.
