Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Dalton Pompey has been diagnosed with a concussion and will be placed under MLB concussion protocol.

The 26-year-old was pulled from the Blue Jays lineup ahead of Thursday’s spring training game against the Philadelphia Phillies after being bumped in the head by bats at the top of his locker at Dunedin Stadium.

Pompey has a history with concussions, being diagnosed with one in both 2016 and 2017.

This latest setback for the Canadian likely brings an end to a spring training in which Pompey appeared in 14 games, slashing .282/.282/.436 with a home run, three doubles and two stolen bases.

Prior to suffering the concussion, Pompey was very much on the Blue Jays roster bubble. It’s unclear what the latest news means for his future.
