Report: MLB may add 7-day disabled list for players with concussions

Like the NFL, Major League Baseball is grappling with the best way to handle concussions.

The sport is considering a seven-day disabled list for players who have concussions, according to the Associated Press. Citing a source who requested anonymity, the AP says the new DL will be considered during the offseason by a special concussion subcommittee and could be in place by next season.

If the proposal clears the subcommittee, it would require the approval of Commissioner Bud Selig and the Major League Baseball Players Association.
