second baseman DJ LeMahieu on the 10-day disabled list Saturday with a left oblique strain.In a corresponding move Thurman Munson Jersey , Colorado called up shortstop Garrett Hampson.LeMahieu exited Friday's 11-10 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks before the bottom of the third inning because of the injury.This year has been an unlucky one for the second basemen, who has already been on the disabled list because of a hamstring strain and a sprained thumb.LeMahieu had avoided these types of problems in the past, playing at least 145 games in each of the last four seasons.The 30-year-old is one of the National League's top players at his position.He has topped a .300 batting average in each of the past three seasons , winning a batting title in 2016 by hitting .348. He also has two Gold Gloves and two All-Star appearances to his credit.Though the injuries have seemed to slow him down a little, he remains an elite fielder and has hit .278 with eight home runs and 34 RBI so far in 2018.Until LeMahieu returns, the Rockies will likely turn to Hampson and Pat Valaika.Colorado will hope for a speedy recovery since it is in the midst of a playoff race Don Larsen Jersey , trailing the Los Angeles Dodgers by just two games for the National League West lead. KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Kansas City Royals placed left-hander Danny Duffy on the 10-day disabled list Monday with a shoulder impingement.The 29-year-old Duffy received an anti-inflammatory shot after allowing six runs in 5 1/3 innings in Saturday’s 8-3 loss to St. Louis. He has lost three of his last four starts.“I felt like getting the shot would help me avoid the DL, just kind of power through it ,” Duffy said. “Two hundred innings was a big goal of mine. I’m disappointed that I’m not very likely to reach that this year, but there will be another chance.“There is no sense in pushing through something and risking further injury that could keep me shelved for a long time. I’m not happy about it. It’s best for the team.”Duffy, who is 7-11 with a 4.90 ERA in 25 starts Masahiro Tanaka Jersey , was on the disabled list twice last year. He is hopeful he will only miss one start.Kansas City also recalled rookie right-hander Glenn Sparkman from Triple-A Omaha. He will make his first major league start in Duffy’s spot Thursday against Toronto.Sparkman is 0-1 with a 5.06 ERA in eight appearances with the Royals this year. He pitched 4 1/3 innings of two-run ball in Friday’s loss to the Cardinals, and then was sent down on Sunday.
