Dbacks' Iannetta has stitches in lip, fractured teeth, nose

Arizona Diamondbacks catcher Chris Iannetta has several stitches in his upper lip, plus a couple of fractured teeth and a broken nose after getting hit in the face by a fastball.

"He's doing OK," manager Torey Lovullo said Saturday, "and I think we're all lucky and fortunate for that."

Iannetta was struck by a 93 mph pitch from Pittsburgh reliever Johnny Barbato in the seventh inning Friday night.

Lovullo said Saturday tests for a concussion were negative and that Iannetta was still being monitored.

"We're still trying to drill down to making sure everything is OK," Lovullo said.
