Chase d'Arnaud left Wednesday's game against the Red Sox after taking a line drive off his cheek.

D'Arnaud, playing center field for some reason, dived for a liner and caught it -- with his right cheekbone. He'll have a black eye at the very least, and the Pirates will likely order an X-ray in the coming days to make sure nothing is broken.
