Ryan Doumit took a foul tip to the mask Sunday, didn’t tell anyone with the Twins that he was experiencing post-concussion symptoms, and then left Wednesday’s game with nausea. Doumit later admitting to being “in a fog” and now he’s been placed on the seven-day concussion disabled list.

To take Doumit’s roster spot the Twins activated Josh Willingham, who missed five weeks following knee surgery. Willingham was a mess before going under the knife, struggling offensively and limping around in left field, but if he can put together a good couple weeks it’s possible that the Twins could find a taker for him before August 31.

    It appears that a lot of catchers have been diagnosed with concussions this season. I am sure that in the past, many catchers had the same problem but it was not diagnosed. MLB seems to be much more careful with concussions than they had been in the past.

    Time to start using milk crates back there like they do in wiffle ball. It is the only humane solution.
