NEW YORK -- The New York Yankees have placed catcher Brian McCann on the seven-day concussion list less than a day after he was hit in the facemask by a foul ball.

McCann was hurt in the third inning Friday night against Cleveland but remained in the game until he was pinch hit for in the sixth. Manager Joe Girardi said McCann was feeling cloudy.

McCann was examined by a neurologist Saturday morning and placed on the DL. He will have to pass Major League Baseball's concussion protocol before being activated.

Austin Romine was recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to fill in for McCann.

The Yankees also gave second baseman Brian Roberts his unconditional release. Roberts was hitting .237 with five homers and 21 RBIs when he was cut on Aug. 1 to make room for infielder Stephen Drew.
