The Rangers said Hurley was released from a New Orleans hospital Wednesday but won't be allowed to travel until later this week. He was hit Monday night while pitching for Triple-A Round Rock at New Orleans.
Hurley will then go to Texas for further evaluation. It is unknown when he will be able to resume baseball activities.
Hurley, a first-round pick by Texas in 2004, made five major league starts in 2008. The right-hander missed 2009 after surgery on a torn rotator cuff and last year after surgery twice on a broken left wrist.
