McLouth to DL


Apparently running into the brick wall that is Jason Heyward is hazardous to your health. The Braves have put center fielder Nate McLouth on the 15-day disabled list with concussion symptoms as a result of Tuesday's night collision with the star rookie.

“I’m still dizzy, like if I get up and move around,” McLouth told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution , who had not been told for sure that he had a concussion. “But they’ve treated it that way.”

The Braves don't have an obvious call-up to fill McLouth's spot on the roster and have yet to announce the corresponding roster move.

McLouth day-to-day


David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal Constitution reports via Twitter that the Braves' Nate McLouth is day-to-day after being hurt in a collision with Jason Heyward on Wednesday night.

However, McLouth still has a headache and will be seen by a doctor today to determine whether he has a concussion. If he does, the DL could still be a possibility.

McLouth out of game after collision


Simple physics -- Jason Heyward is 6-foot-5 and 235 pounds, Nate McLouth is 5-11, 180-pounds, when they collide someone's going to be hurt and it's no surprise which player left the game.

The ball bounced away from McLouth and to the wall and Gerardo Parra raced around the bases for an inside-the-park home run, giving the Diamondbacks a 2-1 lead in the eighth inning.

It was the first home run Peter Moylan had given up since opening day of 2008, a streak of 123 games. Moylan didn't allow a home run in 88 appearances last season.

UPDATE: McLouth has a headache and will be evaluated throughout the night, MLB.com's Mark Bowman Tweets. McLouth was seen by doctors before the Diamondbacks finished up the 2-1 victory.
