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;
- Erick Almonte
- Chris Dickerson
- Brian Roberts
- Denard Span
- 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.
