Brewers SS Willy Adames placed on concussion IL after being hit by foul ball in dugout vs. Giants

Milwaukee Brewers shortstop Willy Adames left their game against the San Francisco Giants in the second inning Friday night after he was hit by a foul ball while sitting in their dugout.

After being evaluated at a local hospital after the game, Adames was placed on the 7-day concussion Injured List on Saturday.

Adames was standing on the top step of the Brewers’ dugout at American Family Field in the second inning with teammates when teammate Brian Anderson hit a foul ball off Giants pitcher Alex Wood. The foul ball drilled Adames in the head and sent him falling back to the bench.
