A Minnesota Twins spokesman said Thursday that Chris Parmelee is "doing well" after taking a fastball to the helmet in Wednesday night's loss to the Boston Red Sox.

Parmelee was evaluated by trainers Thursday morning and is considered day-to-day.

The pitch came via left-hander Justin Thomas, who said after the game, "It was just a fastball up and in, trying to elevate enough to get it on his hands and it just kind of rode in too much on me. No intention there. I just hope he's feeling alright."

The Twins have an off day on Thursday before welcoming the Kansas City Royals to town on Friday.
