The Los Angeles Dodgers have putJoc Pederson on the seven-day concussion DL.
The center fielder was involved in a nasty collision with right fielder Yasiel Puig on Tuesday night at Dodger Stadium. He was diagnosed with a strained neck and did not play Wednesday.
"Puig was really soft,'' Pederson said. "The wall is really hard.''
Pederson has passed all concussion protocols so far, but the Dodgers are still monitoring him.
In the corresponding roster move, the Dodgers reinstated Kenta Maeda (hamstring) from the 10-day DL. He will start Thursday night against the Cardinals.
Pederson has been hitting .200 with two homers and 11 RBIs on the season.
