Less than a week after being hit in the face by a line drive, Rays minor-league pitcher Tyler Zombro is out of the hospital and back at home to continue his recovery.

“Late [Wednesday] afternoon, Tyler Zombro was discharged from Duke University Hospital,” the Rays said in a statement.  “He and his family will remain in Durham and continue with his outpatient occupational and speech therapy.

“The Rays extend their gratitude to the doctors, nurses and staff caring for Tyler, and continue to be overwhelmed by the support for his recovery.”
