The Boston Red Sox have placed catcher David Ross on the
seven-day concussion disabled list for the second time this season. Manager
John Farrell told Michael Periatt of MLB.com that a recent foul tip caused Ross’
symptoms to return, prompting the roster move.
"He's still having symptoms with the concussion,"
manager John Farrell said. "The foul tip the other day in Baltimore kind
of brought some of those symptoms back."
Ross took a foul tip to the face mask during Friday’s game against
the Baltimore Orioles, and this is what has caused his concussion symptoms to
return. The veteran backstop was also out from May 12 through May 24 after
taking two foul balls off his mask on May 11 against the Toronto Blue Jays.
On the season, Ross has hit .185/.274/.400 with two doubles
and four home runs over 75 plate appearances. To replace Ross on the roster,
the Red Sox recalled right-hander Alex Wilson from Triple-A. As a result of the
injury, Jarrod Saltalamacchia had to catch both games of Boston’s double header
