HOUSTON (AP) -The Cincinnati Reds placed outfielder Ryan Freel on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday and called up Dewayne Wise from Triple-A Louisville.
Freel suffered contusions to his head and neck in a frightening collision with RF Norris Hopper in the third inning of Monday's 4-0 win over Pittsburgh. Freel lay motionless for several minutes before he was taken off the field on a stretcher.
The 31-year-old Freel was taken to Good Samaritan Hospital in Cincinnati, where CT scans and MRIs on his neck and head were normal. He was scheduled to be released from the hospital Tuesday.
Freel will see head and spine specialist Dr. John Brannan on Wednesday.
Wise, 29, was hitting .256 with seven home runs and 19 RBIs in 44 games with Louisville this season.
