LHP Ray on 7-day DL
ST. LOUIS — The Arizona Diamondbacks have put All-Star left-hander Robbie Ray on the seven-day concussion disabled list, a day after he was hit in the head by a line drive in a game against the St. Louis Cardinals.
Ray was in the clubhouse Saturday before Arizona played at Busch Stadium.
Arizona Manager Torey Lovullo said Ray had symptoms of a concussion, but that his cognitive testing and balance were good. Ray will remain with the Diamondbacks for the remainder of the road trip and be examined by the club’s training staff and medical team on a daily basis.
Ray is 9-5 with a 3.11 ERA in 20 starts. He left Friday night’s game in the second inning after being struck by a line drive from rookie Luke Voit.
Ray issued a statement via his Twitter account thanking fans for their support and saying that he’s feeling much better.
