Bobby Wilson is the latest player put on the special seven-day disabled list for concussions after the Angels catcher experienced dizziness and had to leave Monday’s game following a foul tip to the mask.
Wilson has a history of concussions and told Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com that he felt “fatigued” and “drowsy” the next morning, at which point the Angels put him on the DL and called up catching prospect Hank Conger from Triple-A.
Conger has been on the DL himself after missing a month in the minors with an elbow strain. It’s unfortunate that it took Wilson suffering a concussion for Conger to get an extended opportunity in the majors, but the 24-year-old former first-round pick has certainly deserved a chance after hitting .305 with 18 homers and an .854 OPS in 152 career games at Triple-A.
