The Diamondbacks announced on Tuesday that outfielder Steven Souza, Jr. has been placed on the 10-day disabled list with a strained right pectoral muscle. Outfielder Sócrates Brito has been recalled from Triple-A Reno.

Souza, 29, initially suffered his injury during a spring training game in March. He started the season on the DL and didn’t make his season debut until May 3. In 47 plate appearances, Souza hit .163/.234/.186.

The D-Backs also recently lost outfielder A.J. Pollock due to an avulsion fracture in his thumb, so the club’s outfield is thin. They have lost five games in a row and 11 of their last 12 contests.
