WASHINGTON — Ronny Cedeno got a concussion last night when he was hit in the back of the head while trying to break up a double play in the fourth inning. Cedeno made contact with Nats second baseman Danny Espinosa.
Cedeno was placed on the seven-day disabled list and infielder Pedro Ciriaco was recalled from Triple-A Indy. It’s a tough break for Cedeno, who’s riding a 10-game hitting streak. Although Ciriaco is listed as active today, Chase d’Arnaud started at shortstop today in the first game of a doubleheader against the Nats.
