ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — The Los Angeles Angels have placed catcher Bobby Wilson on the seven-day concussion DL and recalled catcher Hank Conger from Triple-A Salt Lake.
Wilson started 27 of the Angels’ first 56 games prior to Tuesday night’s contest against Seattle, and had only 13 hits and one RBI in 76 at-bats before he was struck in the facemask by a foul tip off the bat of the Mariners’ Munenori Kawasaki and was removed from Monday’s game.READ MORE: Three Takeaways From Dodgers 2021 Season, NLCS
