New York Yankees first baseman Doug Mientkiewicz will be placed on the 15-day disabled list today after a brutal collision with Boston's Mike Lowell on an errant throw by shortstop Derek Jeter last night.
Mientkiewicz was carted off the field after smashing his head on Lowell's hip while trying to one-hop Jeter's throw in the seventh inning.
Dougie was immediately taken to Massachusetts General Hospital, where he spent the night in observation. Tests revealed a mild concussion, cervical sprain and a fractured bone in his right wrist.
