San Francisco's top catching prospect Andrew Susac has not played in a game since April 21 after taking a few foul tips off his catching mask. According to Ryan Young, Media Relations Coordinator for the Fresno Grizzlies, Susac was diagnosed with a concussion following the game.
Two days later, Susac was placed on the seven-day disabled list, retroactive to April 22.
Despite the serious nature of a concussion, Young says Susac is feeling good about the situation.
"He’s in good spirits," Young said. "I spoke with him a few times before their departure to El Paso and he didn’t seem overly concerned."
Susac was off to a fantastic start in his first 16 Triple-A games, posting a .291/.391/.455 line with two home runs and nine RBIs.
Guillermo Quiroz and Tyler LaTorre have taken over the duties of catching in the absence of Susac, who had started all but one of his games behind the plate.
There is currently no timetable on his return.
