The Tampa Bay Rays placed centerfielder Jose Siri on the 10-day injured list Saturday due to a right hamstring strain and recalled infielder/outfielder Vidal Brujan from Triple-A Durham.
Siri, 27, has helped the Rays to a 7-0 start to open the season. He made a running catch in the eighth inning of Friday’s 9-5 home victory over the Oakland Athletics, crashing into the wall after tracking down a drive from Seth Brown.
Acquired from the Houston Astros at last season’s trade deadline, Siri was batting .318 with a 1.015 OPS in six games this season. He was 1-for-4 with a run scored in Friday’s game.
3081 hitter with a .674 OPS and 13 home runs with 41 RBIs.
Brujan, 25, was 4-for-17 with a double in his first four games at Durham. In 62 major league games with the Rays over the previous two seasons, he is batting .150 with three home runs and 18 RBIs.
