The Giants announced this afternoon that catcher Hector Sanchez was placed on the 7-day concussion disabled list. Andrew Susac has been called up from Triple-A Fresno to take his place on the active roster.

Sanchez left last night’s game against the Dodgers after he was hit in the mask by a foul tip off the bat of Adrian Gonzalez in the third inning. According to Andrew Baggarly of CSNBayArea.com, Giants manager Bruce Bochy said after the game that Sanchez was diagnosed with a “mild concussion” and will likely be out “for a little while.”

Susac, a second-round pick from 2011, was batting .268/.379/.451 with 10 home runs and 32 RBI over 63 games this season in Triple-A. The 24-year-old will serve as Buster Posey’s backup in the short-term.
