ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - The Tampa Bay Rays have put second baseman Ben Zobrist on the 15-day disabled list because of a dislocated left thumb.
The Rays selected the contract of infielder Cole Figueroa from Triple-A Durham before Thursday night's game against the Los Angeles Angels.
Zobrist was injured on a headfirst slide while trying to steal second base in Wednesday's 2-0 victory at Seattle.
The nine-year veteran and two-time All-Star turns 33 in less than two weeks. He is batting .260 with three homers and nine RBIs.
Zobrist played in a career-high 157 games last season, becoming the first player in franchise history to appear in 150 or more in five consecutive years.
The 26-year-old Figueroa was hitting .299 with three homers and 16 RBIs at Durham. This is his seventh season in professional ball and his first trip to the big leagues.
