Salty on 7-day concussion DL
MIAMI — The Marlins on Sunday morning placed catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia on the seven-day concussion disabled list. The club recalled catcher J.T. Realmuto from Double-A Jacksonville.
Saltalamacchia, hitless in his last four games (0-for-13), has had his batting average drop to .237 on the season with six home runs and 17 RBIs. The catcher also has struggled in the field.
In Saturday’s 9-5 loss to the Braves, Saltalamacchia made a throwing error in the ninth inning that led to an unearned run.
Realmuto will be making his MLB debut.
