Indians’ Santana, Swisher go on the disabled list
Question of the Day
Cleveland also designated right-hander Blake Wood for assignment to open a spot on the 40-man roster.
Both players joined the team before Tuesday night’s game with the Chicago White Sox.
Santana was hit in the head by a foul ball while catching Sunday in Baltimore. He was originally in the lineup for the opener of the series in Chicago on Monday as the designated hitter, but was scratched just before game time after experiencing concussion-like symptoms.
“He showed up (Monday) his back was sore, which we knew,” Cleveland manager Terry Francona said. “But when he started to run and get loose, he got a headache, so that’s when you have to start to be cautious.
“We talked to (the White Sox) doctor and they couldn’t call it a concussion (Monday), but he sort of seemed like he had the flu and he also had a temperature. When you’re having concussion-like symptoms, you have to err on the side of not playing.”
This is Santana’s third stint on the DL in the major leagues and the second time he’s been on the concussion list.
This is just the second trip to the DL for Swisher in his career and his first since May 2005. He’s been bothered by his right knee for much of the past week and was removed from Monday’s game in the eighth inning after hyperextending the left knee.
He woke up stiff on Tuesday and the decision was made to sit him down.
“You know, I’ve been very fortunate in my career that this hasn’t happened very often, so it’s kind of uncharted waters a bit,” he said.
“But I think just with where we are and how we feel, this is the best thing for the team and everything. Hey, just grind through it, get better these next couple of weeks, just get ready to come back and have a killer rest of the year.”
“We’ll get him looked at (Wednesday), try to figure out what’s going on and from there we’ll know how to treat it,” Francona said.
