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.
