PHOENIX (AP) -Baltimore Orioles shortstop Miguel Tejada was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a non-displaced fracture of his left wrist on Friday, ending his streak of consecutive games played at 1,152, the fifth-longest in big league history.
Tejada was hit on the wrist by San Diego's Doug Brocail on Wednesday night. Tejada appeared in the Orioles' 6-3 win Thursday at San Diego just long enough to extend his streak, coming out for a pinch-runner after reaching on a fielder's choice in the first inning.
Tejada last missed a game on May 31, 2000. He had started all 558 games since signing a free-agent contract with the Orioles before the 2004 season.
Tejada is hitting .306 with seven homers and 41 RBIs in 72 games. Tejada traveled with the team to Phoenix where the Orioles are opening a series against the Diamondbacks.
In a corresponding move, the team recalled outfielder Jon Knott from Triple-A Norfolk. Knott was expected to join the Orioles in time for Friday's game.
