Tyler Zombro's road to recovery has taken him out of the hospital.
The Tampa Bay Rays minor leaguer has been discharged from the hospital, the Rays-affiliated Durham Bulls announced on Wednesday. Zombro will still need to undergo outpatient occupational and speech therapy, and it's unclear when he will be able to resume baseball activities.
Zombro was at the center of a horrifying scene last week when a line drive from Norfolk Tides catcher Brett Cumberland hit him in the side of the head. Zombro immediately crumpled to the ground and remained motionless before convulsing. He was eventually carted off, and the Triple-A game was called.
News on Zombro's recovery has since been good, but with few details about the extent of his injuries. His requiring speech therapy indicates he has sustained some amount of brain damage, though it's impossible to say how much.
It could be a while before the 26-year-old Zombro is playing baseball again, but that clearly shouldn't be the priority as he deals with a major injury.
