One day after a collision with teammate Josh Willingham left him writhing on the ground, Minnesota Twins outfielder Wilkin Ramirez landed on the seven-day disabled list with concussion-like symptoms on Sunday.
To replace him, the Twins recalled catcher/outfielder Chris Herrmann, who was expected to be in uniform for Monday's game at Milwaukee.
Herrmann, 25, appeared in seven games last season for the Twins, with one hit and one RBI in 18 at-bats. In 43 games this season for Triple-A Rochester, Herrmann was hitting .238 (36-for-151) with five doubles and 12 RBIs.
Ramirez, 27, left Saturday's game at Detroit after a scary collision on a fly ball.
Omar Infante lifted a fly to left-center in the sixth, and Willingham was under it when Ramirez came speeding over to try to make the play. Ramirez did catch the ball, holding onto it for the third out after colliding with Willingham.
