The recent rash of concussion cases hit Kansas City last week, when second baseman Chris Getz, after a collision in the field, and catcher Salvador Perez, who took a hard foul ball off his mask, both left games after experiencing nausea and other concussion symptoms.
Both players recovered quickly but were expected to miss a game or two to make certain the symptoms didn’t return.
