The Indians offense is dealing with a handful of injuries that have left their lineup severely lacking. The problems start behind the plate as Santana has been placed on the 7-day concussion disabled list. The catcher took a foul ball off the mask Friday and became the first player in franchise history to be placed on the 7-day DL Saturday. The team is calling the concussion mild and do not anticipate Santana to be out longer than the minimum amount of time. However it's worth nothing that the effects of a concussion are cumulative. After an individual has suffered one concussion, the symptoms of any subsequent head injuries carry over and often worsen. There may not be any early signs that Santana will miss more than a week but concussions can be unpredictable so pay attention to his status as the week progresses.
