PHOENIX (AP) — The Arizona Diamondbacks have placed catcher Chris Iannetta on the 7-day concussion disabled list.

Iannetta was hit in the face by a Johnny Barbato pitch in the seventh inning of Friday night’s game against Pittsburgh. Iannetta suffered a split top lip, cracked teeth and a broken nose.

He was taken to a hospital to be checked for head trauma, but was back with the team on Saturday.

The plan for Iannetta on Sunday was to go through a workout and see how he felt after that. After further evaluation, the Diamondbacks made their decision.

The club called up reliever Silvino Bracho from Triple-A Reno. Iannetta’s designation is retroactive to Saturday.
