MLB: OF Rowand placed on 15-day DL by Giants

Associated Press

LOS ANGELES San Francisco Giants center fielder Aaron Rowand was placed on the 15-day disabled list on Sunday, two days after a fastball to his head from the Dodgers' Vicente Padilla left him with two small fractures in his left cheekbone and a mild concussion.

The mishap occurred in the fifth inning of Friday night's 10-8 loss, when the ball struck the left ear flap of Rowand's helmet as he turned to get out of the way. He never lost consciousness and was able to leave the field under his own power before he was taken to a hospital for a CT scan.
