---- — A medical evaluation in Cleveland determined that Boston Red Sox hitting coach Greg Colbrunn suffered a subarachnoid hemorrhage.

Colbrunn was admitted to the Cleveland Clinic last night after feeling dizziness before yesterday's Red Sox game with the Indians.

"Red Sox medical director, Dr. Larry Ronan and physicians from the Cleveland Clinic expect Greg to make a good recovery. However, for the next few days, Greg will remain in Cleveland for further evaluation," according to a statement released by the Red Sox.

Colbrunn was hired by the Red Sox before the 2013 season. He batted .289 in 992 major league games over 13 seasons.

Colbrunn is joined by assistant hitting coach Victor Rodriguez on Boston's coaching staff. Colbrunn handles much of the video and scouting report work while Rodriguez spends a lot of time with players in the cage before and during games.
