Rays CF Jose Siri goes on 10-day IL with hamstring injury


ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) – Tampa Bay Rays center fielder Jose Siri was placed on the 10-day injured list with a strained right hamstring and infielder-outfielder Vidal Bruján was recalled from Triple-A Durham on Saturday.

Siri was hurt making a leaping catch in deep center on a drive by Oakland’s Seth Brown in the eighth inning of the Rays’ 9-5 win on Friday night. He stayed in the game.

“His hamstring is a little cranky,” Rays manager Kevin Cash said. “On the play by the wall, he grabbed it. I don’t think he thought it was that bad. He said that he felt a tug, but he was kind of, you know, he’s hot, heated up in the moment. Then this morning he woke up and it was a little more sore than what we were hoping for.”

Siri is hitting .318 with two homers and eight RBIs in six games this season. He also has played strong defense in the outfield.

Bruján has 62 games of major league experience, including 52 with the Rays in 2022. Two of his four minor league games this season came in center.
