ARLINGTON, Texas — Baltimore starter Kyle Bradish left the Orioles’ game against the Texas Rangers in the second inning of a scoreless game after being struck on the right foot by a line drive.

Jonah Heim lined a 2-2 changeup back to the mound — the exit velocity measured at 104 mph — with runners on first and second and one out. The ball struck Bradish on the outside of the foot as he was completing his follow-through. The ball rolled to first baseman Ryan Mountcastle, who tagged the base with the runners moving up.

Manager Brandon Hyde and a team trainer visited with Bradish, who walked around the back of the mound. Hyde then pulled Bradish, who was able to walk to the dugout. Danny Coulombe came in and struck out Brad Miller to end the inning.

Bradish, 26, was making his first start of the season after going 4-7 in 23 starts as a rookie last season. His four wins all came against teams that reached the playoffs — two against Houston and one each against Cleveland and St. Louis.
