Tampa Bay sends another everyday player to the Disabled List — Triple-A infielder called up to fill the gap.
After leaving Monday night’s game with a tweaked hamstring, Matt Duffy has officially been placed on the 10-day DL. When asked about the injury, sustained during the Rays’ 8-4 victory over the Texas Rangers, Duffy said he first felt tightness while attempting to steal second base.

In 2013, while with the San Francisco Giants’ High-A affiliate in San Jose, Ca, the 27-year old infielder had a similar problem. He was forced to miss time then as well. The club hopes to have him back after the minimum number of games.
To replace him on the roster, the team has called up Brandon Snyder from Triple-A Durham. Kevin Kiermaier has been moved to the 60-day DL to make room for Snyder on the 40-man roster.
