BOSTON (AP) — Boston Red Sox hitting coach Greg Colbrunn was hospitalized in Cleveland for further evaluation because of bleeding between the brain and the thin tissues that cover it.

The 44-year-old Colbrunn was admitted to the Cleveland Clinic on Wednesday night after experiencing dizziness before the Red Sox’s game against the Indians.

The Red Sox said Thursday that team medical director Dr. Larry Ronan and physicians from the Cleveland Clinic expect Colbrunn to make a good recovery.

Colbrunn played 13 seasons in the majors with Montreal, Florida, Minnesota, Atlanta, Colorado, Arizona and Seattle, helping the Diamondbacks win the World Series in 2001.
