Reese McGuire Placed on the West Virginia Disabled List

The West Virginia Power have placed catcher Reese McGuire on the disabled list with an unknown injury. Kawika Emsley-Pai has replaced McGuire on the West Virginia roster.

McGuire had been playing as the designated hitter this week, playing two games in a row before missing yesterday’s game. I’ll update this post with more information when it becomes available.

UPDATE: The injury for McGuire is a groin contusion. It is backdated to Saturday, and while the name of the injury sounds horrible, it doesn’t seem like McGuire will miss a lot of time.
