Roy Oswalt got hit behind the right ear by a line drive yesterday in Port Charlotte. He spoke to reporters this morning at Bright House Field. He seemed to be in good spirits. The right side of his neck is swollen, but other than that looked fine.

Here is some of what he said:

Q: How do you feel? How did you sleep last night?
A: I actually slept pretty well. I’m a little bit stiff this morning, but overall I’m OK.

Q: Did you have any time to react?
A: Yeah. He didn’t hit it the best he could hit it. I saw it a little bit out in front of me. I thought it was going to go above me, and that’s why I tried to duck. But it had a little bit of top spin or something on it. The ball kind of tracked me.

Q: The neck looks swollen. It’s just stiff? It’s not painful or anything?
A: Just stiff.

Q: No headaches?
A: No. Last night a little bit, but not too bad.

Q: Are you going to have concussion tests?
A: I don’t know. We did a CT scan yesterday and it looked good.

Q: Have you ever had anything like that happen?
A: I’ve been hit a bunch, but not in the head. That’s the first time it got close.
