Jarrod Saltalamacchia Placed On DL With Concussion

MLB: Colorado Rockies at Miami Marlins

The Marlins have announced that they have placed Jarrod Saltalamacchia on the 7-day concussion disabled list. The team has recalled J.T. Realmuto from Double-A in a corresponding move:

The concussion is supposedly only mild but Salty doesn’t want to rush himself back into action.

Saltalamacchia is in the first of a three-year $21MM contract he signed with Miami this past offseason and is off to a slow start.

Through 48 games, he is hitting .237 with 6 HR’s and 17 RBI’s.
