 TORONTO (AP) -The Oakland Athletics placed outfielder Travis Buck on the 15-day disabled list Monday with a strained left hamstring and recalled infielder J.J. Furmaniak from Triple-A Sacramento.
The move with Buck was made retroactive to Aug. 18.
Buck, who hurt himself running the bases Friday, is batting .288 with seven home runs and 34 RBIs in 82 games. He missed 13 games earlier this season with a sprained right thumb.
Oakland currently has nine players on the disabled list.
Furmaniak joins the Athletics for the fourth time this season. He has been used sparingly in his previous appearances, going hitless in five at-bats and scoring two runs in six appearances.
The 28-year-old Furmaniak was batting .292 with 15 homers, 51 RBIs and a team-leading 21 stolen bases in 106 games at Sacramento. He joined the team in Toronto before Monday night's game against the Blue Jays.
The Athletics have used the disabled list 21 times this season, one shy of the club record set in 1992.
Oakland had at least five players sidelined by injuries every day since April 23, with injuries costing the team 946 missed games. As a result, the Athletics have used 50 players this season, more than any other team in the major leagues.
