Per approval by Major League Baseball and the MLBPA, Cervelli was placed on the seven-day concussion disabled list. He reported symptoms to the medical staff after the game Thursday night. He was examined by an independent neurologist who recommended a period of rest of at least seven days, and will be monitored daily by the medical staff. The Pirates will provide updates as new information becomes available.
