Nippert to DL after getting hit in the head

Texas Rangers pitcher Dustin Nippert says he didn't sustain any significant injuries when he was hit by a batted ball during Monday night's game against Detroit.
Nippert, though, didn't disagree with the team's decision to put
him on the 15-day disabled list for precautionary reasons.
Nippert left Monday's game in the sixth inning after being hit
by Austin Jackson's line drive, but a CT scan was negative and
Nippert was back at the team hotel before the 14-inning game ended
at midnight.
Jackson visited Nippert in the Texas clubhouse before Tuesday's
game to check on his health.
Texas recalled reliever Doug Mathis from Triple-A Oklahoma City
to replace Nippert.
