Arizona Diamondbacks' pitcher Archie Bradley almost got his glove up in time to snag a searing line drive off the bat of Carlos Gonzales. Almost.

Instead, Bradley was hit squarely on the cheek and dropped to the ground, appearing to be knocked out for a brief time.

Watch the play:

Trainers rushed to the rookie right-hander's side, evaluating his injury.

A few minutes later, with the crowd cheering, Bradley was eventually able to leave the field under his own power.

Major League Baseball reports Bradley did not suffer a concussion, but will likely be sidelined until doctors can fully determine the extent of his injuries.

He does not recall much of what happened after Gonzalez hit the pitch, telling the press, "I saw the pitch going toward the plate and then I woke up, and I was laying down, and I was like, 'Oh, crap, what just happened?'"

Once he was in the locker room, Bradley's first instinct was to call his mom and let her know that he was OK. He told MLB.com that he "FaceTimed" with his mother, "It put a smile on her face."

Bradley shared some photos of his face after receiving treatment.
