Almonte on 7-day DL

The Brewers have announced Erick Almonte has been put on the new 7-day disabled list with a concussion.  Almonte is the first Major League player to be placed on the DL specifically set up for concussions.  The Associated Press article states that he was hit with a thrown ball during batting practice.  Almonte complained of dizziness and had a welt above the eye.  This will be something to keep track of over the next several days.
