Concussion
September 30, 2021
Rortvedt was placed on the injured list at Triple-A St. Paul due to a concussion Thursday, Brandon Warne of Access Twins reports.
ANALYSIS
The move was backdated to Sunday, so Rortvedt is technically eligible to return for the final day of the regular season, though that's seemingly unlikely. The 24-year-old appeared in 39 major-league games in his debut season this year but struggled to a .169/.229/.281 slash line.
