Sisco fell and remained relentless for several moments as head coach Brian Ebel and boss Buck Showalter rushed across the field to join him. Slowly, Sisco was able to sit up as Ebel administered the brainwashing protocol. Sisco could stand up and leave the game under his own power. He was replaced by Caleb Joseph.
The official officially described the injury as a facial confusion and said that Sisco did not show any brain shock symptoms. There is a seven-day function list for players who suffer from brain injury, and while Orioles is considering Sisco day-to-day, the team made preparations to add another detainee if needed. Of the two remaining catches on 40-man rosters, only Austin Wynns is available because Andrew Susac is on the smaller league DL.
"He got more of it on his nose than anything," Showalter said. "You know when you have a really hard blow and your eyes tear up. Right now he does not show any brain symptoms at all, so what we do is to make some possible plans if he has something [happen]. I think he spends the night with his family who lives near here so we will call him tomorrow and make sure nothing has cut up. That way we can travel a detainee if we must… Brian and the doctor said he did not show any signs of concussion. We will check again in the morning. "
Sisco, 23, is Oriole's best positioner and had assumed more playing time during the first month of the season.
"Well, the way he laid on the ground is not a fun trip over there," says Showalter. "I can tell you. I know it's not fun for him because … It did not matter much. I'm sure he thought about [ball] that [third baseman Tim] Beckham called him really late [and dropped] and the young man would not let another fall where he was there. I'll tell you that's what he thought. "
Sisco played his first major league game near home Tuesday and had several friends and family in town.
