 OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -Athletics' outfielder Mark Kotsay was placed on the 15-day disabled list because of lower back spasms before Friday night's game against the Kansas City Royals.
Kotsay is on the disabled list for the second time. He missed the first two months of the season after having surgery on his lower back on March 8. He was reinstated from the DL on June 1 and hit .214 with one home run and 20 RBI in 56 games with the A's.
Kotsay missed four straight games with back problems from August 5-8 and was 1-for-16 over his last five games. The move is retroactive to Aug. 15.
Veteran outfielder Jeff DaVanon was recalled from Triple-A Sacramento to take Kotsay's place on the 25-man roster.
DaVanon was signed to a minor league contract on August 10 after he was released by Arizona on August 3. He opened the season on the Diamondbacks disabled list recovering from surgery on his left ankle.
DaVanon hit .154 in 13 games with Arizona before his release and then batted .321 with Sacramento. He hit .329 with two home runs, seven RBI and 18 walks in 24 minor league games overall.
This is the 20th time the A's have used the disabled list this year, which is two short of the Oakland record of 22 set in 1992. The 20 players on the DL have combined to miss 928 games, surpassing the Oakland record of 923 set in 1992.
