MLB Concussion Update #3


It has been about three weeks since a MLB player has been placed on the 7-day DL.  Ronny Cedeno has been designated by the Pittsburgh Pirates as having a concussion;

Cedeno was hit on the back of his head while attempting to break up a double play in the fourth inning of Friday’s loss to Washington. “He had limited symptoms initially, but got worse as the night progressed – even after leaving the ballpark,’’ Pirates general manager Neal Huntington said.

This brings the total MLB players to be placed on the 7-day DL to five;

  1. Erick Almonte
  2. Chris Dickerson
  3. Brian Roberts
  4. Denard Span
  5. Ronny Cedeno

This does not include Marlon Byrd, who sustained facial fractures after getting hit in his face while batting.  Using “Fink’s Rule” the unofficial number is now six.
