BALTIMORE — The Los Angeles Angels put infielder Anthony Rendon on the 10-day injured list with a left groin strain.
The move was retroactive to Sunday, when Rendon was out of the lineup for a game at Cleveland. He was hurt Saturday.
The Angels also recalled infielder Livan Soto from Double-A Rocket City, reinstated catcher Chad Wallach from the IL and optioned catcher Chris Okey to Triple-A Salt Lake.
The 32-year-old Rendon has hit .301 in 30 games this year. He’s in the fourth season of a $245 million, seven-year deal with Los Angeles. He hasn’t played more than 58 games in a season since leaving Washington to join the Angels.
PHOENIX — The Arizona Diamondbacks extended manager Torey Lovullo’s contract through the 2024 season.
The deal is the third straight one-year extension for the longest-tenured manager in team history.
Lovullo is 446-483 in seven seasons, with one playoff appearance.
Lovullo led the Diamondbacks to the 2017 National League division series his first season and a winning record the next two. Arizona general manager Mike Hazen stuck with Lovullo after an injury-filled 110-loss season in 2021 and the Diamondbacks have enjoyed a resurgence this year.
The Diamondbacks enter against Atlanta 35-24, tied with the Los Angeles Dodgers for the best record in the NL.
