Dodgers right-hander Carlos Monasterios in good condition after taking line drive off the side of his head
Only to the side of the head.
Monasterios was sitting in the dugout in the fourth inning Sunday afternoon when Mets outfielder Carlos Beltran lined a wicked foul into the Dodgers’ dugout.
The drive came so quickly, Monasterios did not have time to react from his spot on the bench and it hit him on the right side of the head.
Monasterios never lost consciousness and was escorted into the team training room.
The Dodgers said Monasterios, who started and threw five shutout innings against the Mets on Saturday, was in good condition and did not appear to have a concussion.
