The Los Angeles Angels placed third baseman Anthony Rendon on the 10-day injured list with a hamstring injury prior to Tuesday night’s game against the visiting Boston Red Sox.

Rendon sustained the injury to his left hamstring during Sunday’s game against the Baltimore Orioles. He sat out Monday’s series opener against the Red Sox.

This marks Rendon’s third trip to the IL this season. He missed time in April due to a left groin injury and in May for a bruised left knee.

The 31-year-old Rendon is having a quiet season with the bat. He is hitting .240 with six homers and 34 RBIs in 58 games during his second season with the team.

The Angels recalled infielder Jack Mayfield from Triple-A Salt Lake in a corresponding move. Mayfield, 30, is batting .162 with three RBIs in 13 games this season in stints with the Seattle Mariners (6-for-34) and Angels (0-for-3).

Los Angeles also announced that outfielder Scott Schebler cleared waivers and accepted an outright assignment to Salt Lake. The 30-year-old Schebler, who batted .147 in 14 games, was designated for assignment on Saturday.
