MLB Concussion Update


The number of official concussions in Major League Baseball has doubled in one day; as two players are diagnosed with one.  Brian Roberts of the Baltimore Orioles and Chris Dickerson of the New York Yankees join Erick Almonte on the list.

Roberts is having headaches and it is unknown at this time what is the origin of them, however they are classifying his injury as concussion like symptoms and placing him on the 7-day DL.

Dickerson took a fastball to the helmet that shattered his bill and required him to visit the hospital.  Manager Joe Girardi indicated that he likely sustained a concussion, since has been corroborated via @Ledger_Yankees;

Dickerson has a concussion. He’s in good spirits. Still has mark on the side of his face, cut from broken edge of helmet pinching down.

This brings the season total to three.  As more hit the wires feel free to send us a note.
