The Minnesota Twins made a pair of roster moves yesterday, replacing one slugger with another. Minnesota placed catcher Ryan Doumit on the seven-day concussion disabled list, filling his spot with outfielder Josh Willingham, according to Joey Nowak of MLB.com. Doumit exited Wednesday’s contest against the Kansas City Royals after complaining of concussion-like symptoms. He initially suffered his head injury Sunday against the Houston Astros, but he didn’t report his symptoms until Wednesday. Considering what has been made known regarding concussions and their severity, and the Twins’ first-hand experience with Justin Morneau, manager Ron Gardenhire said placing Doumit on the DL was a no-brainer. "It's something, as we've talked about, that everybody understands a little bit more about now and they're taking the right steps to make sure we protect these guys, because for however long this game's been played, concussions weren't really talked about a whole heck of a lot," Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said. "And now it's one of those things baseball's learned a whole lot more about and is still learning about, and we're trying to protect these players, as is every sport." Prior to his activation, Willingham had been on the DL since the beginning of July due to a medial meniscus tear in his left knee. The injury required surgery and ultimately sidelined the outfielder for 33 games. Follow @mlbinjurynews Looking for fantasy baseball advice?
