MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Twins say first baseman Chris Parmelee "is doing well" a day after he was hit in the head by a pitch from Boston's Justin Thomas.

A Twins spokesman says Parmelee was examined again by team doctors on Thursday and showed no signs of a concussion. He is listed as day to day.

It was a scary scene in the sixth inning on Wednesday night. A fastball got away from Thomas, and Parmelee was unable to get out of the way before it hit the bill of his batting helmet. The impact made a loud noise and the ball ricocheted way over by the Red Sox bullpen.

The Twins were off Thursday and open a series with Kansas City on Friday night.
