NEW YORK -- Mets right-hander Matt Koch was struck in the head with a line drive in the second inning Friday while pitching for Class A Savannah and was hospitalized overnight. Koch retweeted these images last night.

The 2012 third-round pick will need to remain hospitalized at least another night after bruising on the brain got a little larger.
