Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Dalton Pompey has been diagnosed with a concussion, the team said Friday.
Pompey was scratched from Toronto's lineup for Thursday's spring training game against Philadelphia after he bumped his head on a bat in his locker.
The Blue Jays say he underwent testing from team doctors on Thursday and will now be placed under Major League Baseball's concussion protocol.
Pompey also suffered a concussion in 2016 and 2017.
The native of Mississauga, Ont., is batting .282 with a home run and seven runs batted in over 14 games this spring.
