Per the Charlotte Stone Crabs, catcher Matt Spring has been placed on the 7-day disabled list, and 2009 draftee catcher David Wendt has been called up from extended spring training to replace him on the active roster. Spring was injured while catching in Tuesday night's 3-1 victory against Clearwater. He was tended to by trainer Chris Tomashoff and remained in the game for the rest of the inning, but was replaced defensively the next inning by Jake Jefferies.
Spring has hit .273 in 62 at-bats for Charlotte this year. Wendt was drafted last year in the 50th round, and hit .298 in 63 at-bats for the Princeton Rays of the Appalachian League in 2009.
