MILWAUKEE -- The Milwaukee Brewers on Saturday placed third baseman Corey Koskie on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to July 6, with post-traumatic concussion syndrome.

Outfielder Tony Gwynn -- the son of the former San Diego Padres outfielder -- was recalled from Triple-A Nashville to take Koskie's spot on the roster.

Koskie is batting .261 with 12 home runs and 33 RBI in 76 games this season.

Gwynn will be making his major league debut.

In 86 games in the Pacific Coast League, Gwynn hit .305 with two home runs and 35 RBI. He also had 24 stolen bases, second-best in the league.

He was the Brewers' minor league player of the month for May, when he hit .363 with one home run and eight RBI.

Gwynn was selected in the second round of the 2003 draft.
