Almonte on 7-day DL, Hart activated
The Brewers just placed Erick Almonte on the seven-day disabled list with a concussion he suffered during batting practice today and reinstated Corey Hart a day early. Major League Baseball just instituted the seven-day DL this spring as a way to address concerns about concussions.
The announcement came about 20 minutes before Marco Estrada was to throw his first pitch against the Reds. Almonte was hurt when he was struck in the face by a thrown ball during batting practice. He left the field with assistant athletic trainer Dan Wright and did not return.
