ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -The Tampa Bay Rays placed outfielder Rocco Baldelli on the 60-day disabled list Friday and filled his roster spot by claiming outfielder Nathan Haynes off waivers from the Los Angeles Angels.
Baldelli, who missed most of last season because of lingering hamstring problems, is sidelined indefinitely with mitochondrial disorder, a condition he says leaves him feeling extremely fatigued after short workouts.
The Rays were hoping the 26-year-old could share the right-field job with Jonny Gomes and Cliff Floyd. Baldelli has appeared in just 127 of 486 games the past three seasons because of an assortment of injuries.
Haynes, 28, made his major league debut with the Angels last season and hit .267 in 40 games.
