CINCINNATI (AP) -Reds outfielder Ryan Freel was examined Thursday by a head and spine specialist, who recommended rest and limited activity as Freel recovers from a collision with another player.
Freel, 31, was playing center field when he collided with right fielder Norris Hopper in the third inning of Monday's 4-0 win over Pittsburgh in Cincinnati. Freel lay motionless for several minutes before he was taken off the field on a stretcher.
He spent the night at Good Samaritan Hospital, where it was determined that he had contusions to the head and neck. He was released Tuesday and was placed on the 15-day disabled list.
Freel, who is batting .251 with two homers and 12 RBIs, will be examined again next week, the Reds said.
