Yankees catcher Austin Romine likely has a concussion

Yankees rookie catcher Austin Romine took a hard foul ball off the mark yesterday and afterward manager Joe Girardi said: “He’s probably got a concussion.”

Girardi told Andy McCullough of the Newark Star Ledger that “he was a little dizzy” and “he got nauseous” after initially remaining in the game following the passing of some early tests.

Romine would join a startlingly long list of catchers to have concussions this season, several of whom suffered their brain injuries from similar foul balls within the past month. Given the unpredictable nature of brain injuries Romine would likely miss the remainder of the season.
