Dwight Smith Jr. placed on concussion IL

The Orioles placed Dwight Smith Jr. on the 7-day concussion injured list.

Fantasy Impact

Smith suffered the concussion crashing into a wall on Thursday night. As is the case with most head injuries it's tough to say how long he will be sidelined for. Smith is batting .249 this year to go along with 11 homers and four steals for the rebuilding Orioles.

Dwight Smith dealing with a concussion

Dwight Smith is expected to "be out for a while" in the estimation of manager Brandon Hyde, Rich Dubroff of BaltimoreBaseball.com reports. "He's going through the concussion protocol, they're going to X-ray his shoulder up here that he banged in the wall and he's holding his jaw. It was like a car wreck."

Fantasy Impact

Smith crashed face-first into the left-field wall catching a ball in the outfield causing the concussion and also hurting his shoulder. It sounds like Smith will need a trip to the IL and fantasy owners should keep an eye on updates.
