Colin Moran, a former baseball star at Iona Prep in New Rochelle who is now a member of the Houston Astros, suffered a facial fracture after a foul ball hit him in the face in a game Saturday against the Baltimore Orioles.
The injury, which has resulted in Moran being placed on the 10-day disabled list, happened in just his sixth at-bat of the season and the rookie's second game after being called up from Triple-A on Tuesday.
Moran was carted off the field before he was taken to the hospital where the tests revealed the fracture.
A Rye native, Moran is a 6-foot-4, 204-pound third baseman. He played collegiately at North Carolina. Moran is the nephew of former major league players Rick and BJ Surhoff of Rye.
