Thank goodness. They would have needed an X-Ray to determine if some part of his body wasn't on the bag during that tag.
The review priorities seem totally misguided to me. I have similar problems with NBA review, where calls are overturned or decided based on the letter of a given rule rather than the spirit of it, to the point that review in many cases is not actually solving a problem. Reviewing if someone came a millimeter off the bag during a slide on a play where he was clearly safe is not solving a problem. We don't need to go back to the time if a shortstop not coming within feet of the bag on a double play, but it's ridiculous to review a play like we just saw while not leaving open the possibility to review whether or not bat made contact with ball.

Ottavino is not the answer. Double hit by pitch and right into the family jewels.
