Orioles catcher Caleb Joseph is heading to the 15-day disabled list after taking a foul ball to his groin in the eighth inning of Monday’s loss to the Boston Red Sox, according to an industry source.
Joseph is slated to be placed on the disabled list before Tuesday’s game. The team plans to recall catcher Francisco Pena from Triple-A Norfolk to take his place.
After Joseph was hit, he dropped to his knees for several moments in pain and was attended to by head trainer Richie Bancells. Joseph remained in Monday’s game, but was taken to an area hospital afterward as a precaution. Apparently the injury is serious enough to warrant a DL stint.
