ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -The Baltimore Orioles placed shortstop Freddie Bynum on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left hamstring prior to Saturday night's game against the Texas Rangers.
The Orioles promoted shortstop Luis Hernandez from Triple-A Norfolk to replace Bynum.
Bynum left Friday night's game against the Rangers in the third inning after his foot struck first base awkwardly while running out a grounder. Bynum had a .277 average with two homers and eight RBIs in 47 games for the Orioles this season.
Brandon Fahey started at shortstop on Saturday night.
Bynum becomes the eighth Oriole currently on the disabled list, a group that includes starting shortstop Miguel Tejada, out with a fractured left wrist.
Hernandez, a 23-year-old switch hitter, started the season at Double-A Bowie before being promoted to Norfolk, where he was batting .273 in nine games.
