ANAHEIM -- The Rays placed 2B Ben Zobrist on the 15-day disabled list today with a dislocated left thumb.
Zobrist said he hopes to be back in 15 days but knows it might take longer. Zobrist said he doesn’t want to rush back and risk aggravating the injury and suffering a setback.
Because the dislocation is the top knuckle, it should take between one and three weeks to fully heal.
The Rays purchased the contract of INF Cole Figueroa from Triple A Durham and added him to the roster.
Sean Rodriguez will play second base tonight.
