NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) – The Yankees placed catcher Brian McCann on the seven-day concussion list Saturday just one day after he was hit in the facemask by a foul ball.

McCann was injured in the third inning against Cleveland Friday night but remained in the game until he was pinch hit for in the sixth.

Manager Joe Girardi said McCann was feeling cloudy.

McCann was examined by a neurologist Saturday morning and placed on the DL. He will have to pass the MLB’s concussion protocol before he can be activated.

Austin Romine was recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to fill in for McCann.

The Yankees also gave second baseman Brian Roberts his unconditional release. Roberts was hitting .237 with five homers and 21 RBIs when he was cut on Aug. 1 to make room for infielder Stephen Drew.
