Milwaukee Brewers shortstop Willy Adames left Friday's game against the San Francisco Giants after being hit by a foul ball off the bat of teammate Brian Anderson while in the dugout.

The Brewers placed Adames on the seven-day concussion injured list Saturday. He remained in hospital overnight but was released on Saturday.

"All the news has been good," Counsell said Saturday, adding that Adames is now resting at home, according to Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. "He's in very good spirits. Everything checked out well medically. So now it's just today, especially, a day of recovery."

Anderson's line drive in his second-inning at-bat went into the Brewers' dugout and struck Adames, who was sitting on the bench.

The Brewers selected infielder Andruw Monasterio from Triple-A Nashville while recalling right-hander Jake Cousins. The club also optioned left-hander Ethan Small to the minors and designated southpaw Alex Claudio for assignment.

Adames managed to walk into the clubhouse after being tended to by Brewers trainers.

A visibly emotional Anderson resumed his at-bat after the brief delay and grounded out before quickly running to the clubhouse himself to check on his teammate. Brice Turang replaced Adames at shortstop in the third inning; Anderson remained in the game.

The 27-year-old is hitting .205/.292/.384 with nine home runs and 27 RBIs in 51 games for the Brewers this season.
