Saltalamacchia missed a little over two weeks with a concussion that he sustained May 31 when B.J. Upton dinged him in the catcher’s mask with a foul tip. The 29-year-old backstop had an exceptional April but was batting just .177/.258/.241 across 89 plate appearances in May at the time of the head injury.

Salty signed a three-year, $21 million free agent contract with the Marlins over the offseason. As Frisaro notes in that tweet above, he will catch Andrew Heaney in the 23-year-old’s MLB debut Thursday in Miami.
