Smith left Tuesday night's 8-3 loss to the Twins after being hit in the mask by a foul tip during the fourth inning. Angels manager Brad Ausmus said postgame Smith was in the concussion protocol.3

"When we got out there, after 15 seconds, he seemed fine," Ausmus said, as quoted by "He said, 'I'm good and I'm ready to go.' The trainers looked at him when he came back in at the end of the inning and they said, 'No. We need to get him out of there.' We don't want to mess around with a potential concussion in the middle of May."

The 30-year-old Smith, who serves as the backup catcher to Jonathan Lucroy, is batting .290 with one homer and five RBIs in 22 games in his fourth major league season.china nike nfl jerseys cheap
