Angels place Bobby Wilson on concussion DL, call up Hank Conger
The Angels have placed catcher Bobby Wilson on the 7-day concussion disabled list. To replace him, they've called up Hank Conger.
After Angels catcher Bobby Wilson took a hard foul ball off the mask on Monday against Seattle, he showed clear signs of a concussion, so the team has placed him on the special seven-day disabled list reserved for such injuries. "My face felt like it was on fire," Wilson told Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times. "I was drowsy, fatigued, in a fog."
Wilson is hitting .171/.232/.171 on the season, largely in place of injured starter Chris Iannetta, who underwent wrist surgery in early May.
To replace Wilson on the active roster and behind the plate, the Angels have summoned Hank Conger from Triple-A Salt Lake. The 24-year-old Conger is a career .299/.361/.468 hitter across parts of seven minor-league seasons. Although he's scuttled during previous call-ups, it would be difficult for Conger to be less productive than Wilson has been to date.
