A's place Callaspo on DL with hamstring strainJuly 12, 2014 @ 3:20 pm
SEATTLE (AP) -- The Oakland Athletics have placed infielder Alberto Callaspo on the 15-day disabled list because of a right hamstring strain.
The A's recalled infielder Andy Parrino from Triple-A Sacramento on Saturday to fill in for Callaspo.
Callaspo grabbed his leg and pulled up limping just before crossing first base during the second inning of Oakland's loss at Seattle on Friday. He exited the game and was replaced in the lineup by Nate Freiman.
Callaspo is hitting .234 with three home runs and 31 RBI in 83 games.
Parrino will make his second appearance with the A's this season. He started two games for the club as a callup in mid-June.
