The Dodgers announced on Wednesday that second baseman Logan Forsythe and utilityman Rob Segedin have been placed on the 10-day disabled list. The club recalled outfielder Brett Eibner and utilityman Chris Taylor from Triple-A Oklahoma City.
Forsythe, 30, suffered a fractured right big toe when he was hit in the foot by a pitch on Tuesday. It’s a big loss for the Dodgers, as Forsythe was playing well, batting .295/.407/.341 in 54 plate appearances. Fortunately, the club has Chase Utley ready to step in and handle second base on a regular basis.
Segedin, 28, also has a toe injury, but just a strain of his right big toe. He took only four plate appearances prior to the injury, registering just a lone single.
The Yankees have activated shortstop Didi Gregorius from the 10-day disabled list, the club announced on Friday. Infielder Pete Kozma was designated for assignment to clear roster space.
Gregorius, 27, suffered a strained right shoulder while playing in the World Baseball Classic last month. He’s in Friday’s starting lineup, batting sixth against the Orioles.
Last season, Gregorius hit .276/.304/.447 with 20 home runs and 70 RBI in 597 plate appearances.
Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that the Mets will place outfielder Yoenis Cespedes on the 10-day disabled list with a strained left hamstring. Cespedes left Thursday’s game after suffering the injury running the bases.
Things keep going poorly for the Mets, who are in last place in the NL East with an 8-13 record. Cespedes will join a lengthy list of names in the infirmary, including David Wright, Lucas Duda, Wilmer Flores, Steven Matz, Seth Lugo, and Noah Syndergaard.
Cespedes is batting a very productive .270/.373/.619 with six home runs and 10 RBI through his first 75 plate appearances.
With Cespedes out, Michael Conforto should be cemented as an everyday player and Juan Lagares will handle center field with Granderson moving back to right field and Jay Bruce covering first base.
