Talk about bad luck.
According to MLB.com's Adam McCalvy on Twitter, Almonte was playing catch, lost track of the ball and was hit in the face. McCalvy wrote Almonte was upset, and another concussion is a concern.
On April 26, Almonte, 33, was hit above his right eye by a thrown ball and put on the new seven-day disabled list for concussions. His recovery has been slow, and he just returned to working out this past weekend.
Almonte suffered from dizziness and nausea for more than a week after his initial hit to the head.
Almonte, in his first season with the Brewers, was hitting .103/.103/.207 in 29 plate appearances and 16 games for Milwaukee this season. He has played right field and first base for the Brewers this season but came up as a shortstop with the Yankees in the early 2000s, playing in eight games for the Yankees in 2001 and 31 in 2003 before spending the next several years in the minors in the Yankees, Rockies, Tigers and Brewers systems.For more baseball news, rumors and analysis, follow @cbssportsmlb on Twitter or subscribe to the RSS feed.
