Marlins place Jarrod Saltalamacchia on concussion DL

The Miami Marlins have placed catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia on the 7-day concussion disabled list. Saltalamacchia played on Saturday so his concussion likely occurred then.

It began with a sharp liner to right with two outs in the second. "...

No, he’s not Brian McCann. No, he’s not Carlos Ruiz. Yes, this means that Jarrod Saltalamacchia will be (most likely) taking his talents and beautiful, beautiful hair elsewhere (and all...
