Minnesota Twins shortstop Kyle Farmer exited a game against the Chicago White Sox after a pitch hit him in the face.

He could walk off the field after being hit in the face by a fastball by White Sox pitcher Lucas Giolito. Giolito was visibly upset as Farmer went to the ground, according to a Wednesday report from ESPN.

Kyle Farmer lay face down for a few minutes as the Twins tended to him, continued the ESPN report. He walked to the dugout with a towel press against him after he got to his feet. The Twins have not officially announced the nature of Farmer's injury.

Kyle Farmer, a former 8th-round pick in the 2013 MLB June Amateur Draft, played for two seasons with the Los Angeles Dodgers and four with the Cincinnati Reds before he was traded to the Twins in a November trade. He has played in 10 games so far for Minnesota, earning seven hits, six runs, one home run, 33 plate appearances and 30 at-bats.
