Hector Sanchez was feeling dizzy after being hit by a foul ball in yesterday’s loss to the Dodgers. The Padres have now decided to place him on the 7 day disabled list due to concussion like symptoms.
The events of yesterday’s game and the injury played out like this:
Austin Barnes fouled off a pitch that struck catcher Hector Sanchez squarely in the face mask. Sanchez stayed in for the next couple of pitches, but Bethancourt called him out to the mound and then motioned to the dugout that something didn’t seem right. Sanchez came out of the game and was replaced by Luis Torrens. With a history of concussion issues, there’s reason to be concerned about Sanchez’ health. It’s probably a good thing that Bethancourt recognized an issue when he did.
Concussion-like symptoms for Hector Sanchez, Green said. He'll be re-evaluated tomorrow.— AJ Cassavell (@AJCassavell) April 6, 2017
Jabari Blash will fill the roster spot as he is recalled from AAA.
#Padres place Hector Sanchez on 7-day disabled list with concussion like symptoms. Jabari Blash called up from Triple-A.— Andrew Burer (@andrewburer) April 7, 2017
Also as noted by Andrew Burer, Alex Dickerson was placed on the 60 day DL.
Dickerson says he feels healthy, progressing fine. The 60-day move will force him to take his recovery slowly. Hopes to be back right then.— AJ Cassavell (@AJCassavell) April 7, 2017
