The Tampa Bay Rays placed 2B Ben Zobrist (thumb) on the 15-day disabled list Thursday, May 15, and recalled INF Cole Figueroa from the minors in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: Zobrist dislocated his thumb sliding headfirst into second base yesterday and will need several weeks to heal. Sean Rodriguez is the likely candidate to take over most of the playing time at the keystone in Zobrist's absence, with Logan Forsythe mixing in occasionally. Figueroa will serve as middle infield insurance. Grab Rodriguez in AL-only or cavernous mixed leagues if you need MI help.
