Back on Thursday, Bo Bichette got hit in the head by a 93-mile-per-hour pitch from Tampa Bay Rays starter Gabriel Ynoa. He would stay in the game for another inning, playing defensively in the field and taking an at-bat, before getting taken out in favour of Richard Urena.
He hasn’t played since then and there’s a good chance that it’ll end up being his final game of the season.
Bo Bichette is still going through protocol in an attempt to return from his concussion.Asked Charlie Montoyo if they’ve considered shutting him down and he said knowing Bo he’ll want to come back if he’s cleared, but admitted he may have played his final game of 2019.#BlueJays

As Scott Mitchell reports, Bichette is currently going through concussion protocol in order to make it back onto the field before the end of the season on Sunday. Given the fact the season is over, there’s really no sense in bringing Bichette back. This is the first time he’s dealt with a concussion and there’s no need to take any kind of risk when it comes to head injuries.
