Boston Red Sox Third baseman Justin Turner is on the road to recovery after receiving a positive prognosis following a terrifying scene during Monday’s game against the Detroit Tigers that left him bloodied and in need of more than a dozen stitches.

Turner, 38, immediately fell to the ground after being punched in the face by a pitch right-hander Matt Manning in the first entry. Bloodied and in obvious pain, Turner lay on the ground as medical personnel rushed to his aid.
