Red Sox place Mookie Betts on seven-day concussion DL
Wednesday July 29th, 2015

The Boston Red Sox have placed centerfielder Mookie Betts on the seven-day concussion disabled list, manager John Farrell told reporters on Wednesday. 

Betts left Tuesday night’s game against the Chicago White Sox in the sixth inning after tumbling over the Fenway Park wall attempting to rob a home run. He landed on his head/neck and received further testing by the team afterwards. 

Farrell said the Red Sox recalled outfielder Jackie Bradley Jr. from Triple A to take Betts' place on the roster. On Monday, Boston recalled outfielder Rusney Castillo from Triple A. 

Betts is hitting .265 with 10 home runs and 48 RBIs in 97 games this season.
