From the official Twitter account of the Oakland Athletics …
#Athletics place Ike Davis on the 15-day disabled list retroactive to May 14; recall Craig Gentry from Nashville.

Davis strained his left quadriceps muscle last Monday while trying to leg out a double and had been limited to a single pinch-hitting appearance over the last six days. Oakland apparently grew tired of playing a man short. The 28-year-old first baseman was off to a decent start with his new team, batting .282/.348/.427 with two home runs and 11 RBI in 33 games. He should be back in action for the A’s around the beginning of June.
