(AP) — Arizona Diamondbacks batting coach Don Baylor is back with the team on Saturday for Game 1 of the NL division series after fainting the day before at the clubhouse.

Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson says that the 62-year-old Baylor had a "reaction, maybe, to some medication."

Gibson says Baylor's hospital tests came back negative and he's holding regular team meetings with the hitters before Arizona took on the Milwaukee Brewers.

Baylor collapsed after eating breakfast in the clubhouse, and one of the team's trainers caught him as he fell.

Baylor, who played 19 seasons in the major leagues and was the 1979 AL MVP with the California Angels, joined Gibson's staff in the offseason.
