Twins place Motter on 7-day DL with concussion-like symptoms
Motter crashed into the outfield wall Thursday during the Twins’ win over the Chicago White Sox, but remained in the game.
The Twins selected the contract of Triple-A catcher and infielder Willians Astudillo to replace Motter on the 25-man roster, while right-handed pitcher Felix Jorge was designated for assignment.
Astudillo has hit .290 with 25 RBI, 12 doubles and seven home runs in 49 games with Triple-A Rochester this year and was named an International League All-Star this year.
Jorge, 24, started two games for the Twins in 2017 but had pitched just two games this year in Rookie ball on a rehab assignment.
