Twins place Castro on 7-day DL, recall Granite from Triple-A
After leaving Wednesday’s game in the sixth inning, the Minnesota Twins placed catcher Jason Castro on the 7-day concussion disabled list on Thursday.
Castro took multiple foul balls to the face mask during Wednesday’s 4-3 loss to the White Sox and was tested for concussion symptoms after exiting the game.
The Twins will recall outfielder Zack Granite from Triple-A. Granite is hitting .338/.392/.475 in 71 games for Rochester this season, and he’s currently riding a seven game hitting streak.
Granite made his MLB debut on July 8 with the Twins. In 19 big-league games, Granite hit two doubles, stole two bases, walked six times, and recorded seven RBI and a slash line of .250/.281/.596.
Castro has a .229 batting average this season, his best mark since his All-Star year with the Astros in 2013.
