OAKLAND (CBS/AP) – The Oakland Athletics have placed third baseman Brandon Inge on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right groin and recalled infielder Adam Rosales from Triple-A Sacramento.
The move was retroactive to Sunday and landed Inge on the DL for the second time. He started the season on the DL with Detroit with a strained left groin. He signed with the A’s as a free agent after the Tigers released him.
Inge is hitting .227 with four home runs and 17 RBIs in 11 starts at third for Oakland. Overall, he’s hitting .188 in 20 games.
Rosales was on the opening day roster for Oakland and appeared in one game without an at-bat. He was hitting .277 with two homers and 19 RBIs with Sacramento.
