New York Yankees outfielder Carlos Beltran was placed on the seven-day disabled list on July 10 after he suffered a concussion during a batting practice mishap a day earlier.

New York Yankees outfielder Carlos Beltran was placed on the seven-day disabled list on July 10. 

According to MLB.com's Bryan Hoch, Beltran has a concussion which is traced to a batting-practice mishap a day before he was placed on the DL: 

"Carlos Beltran, who sustained two small facial fractures in a batting-practice mishap on Wednesday, has been diagnosed with a concussion and was placed on the seven-day disabled list on Thursday. 

"Infielder Yangervis Solarte was recalled from Triple-A's Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to take Beltran's place on the active roster. Yankees manager Joe Girardi indicated that Beltran is expected to return to the lineup on July 18, when the team returns from the All-Star break for a home game against the Reds. 

"'Obviously he had a concussion; he has the fractures in the nose, and we don't think it's going to require (surgery), but we've got to make sure,' Girardi said. "We've got to get that checked out, so he went back to New York to make sure his nose is going to be OK. We just felt that it was probably best that he didn't play for a few days.'

"Beltran was scratched from the starting lineup from New York's 5-4, 14-inning victory over the Indians after a batted ball ricocheted off a protective 'L' screen in an indoor batting cage, striking him in the face.

"'You don't expect that to happen when you're practicing,' Beltran said after Wednesday's game. 'I had a headache for the whole day. Now it's getting better. Hopefully...I could be back soon.' 

"Beltran had some bruising on the bridge of his nose, but relatively little swelling. Beltran, who traveled back to New York on Thursday and will be seen by a specialist, missed the first two games of the series against the (Cleveland) Indians because of swelling behind his right knee. 

"In the first year of a three-year, $45 million contract, Beltran is hitting .216 with nine home runs and 28 RBIs in 61 games. He has been limited to designated-hitter duty since hyperextending his right elbow in April, requiring a stint on the disabled list. 

"'He was clearly frustrated last night. It's such a freak incident, and I think he was starting to swing the bat,' Girardi said. 'That's the frustrating part for him and us. I thought his timing was coming back, and all of a sudden, you have to sit down for a while. That's not what you want.'" 

The New York Daily News' Mark Feinsand describes the immediate aftermath of Beltran's freak accident: 

"After being scratched from the lineup, Beltran was sent for X-rays and a CT scan was unavailable to pinch-hit in the game. One of the fractures is in Beltran's nose, while the other is just below the nose. 

 

"'I don't know what the team is going to do,' Beltran said. 'With the concussion things, teams are taking that seriously. Honestly I don't feel like I have that, but at the end of the day, it's not my decision.'

"Beltran was replaced as the DH by Derek Jeter, who had been scheduled to take the night off. Jeter went 2-for-6 with a walk and a run scored in the win."
