NEW YORK — The Baltimore Orioles have placed outfielder Colby Rasmus on the 10-day disabled list with a hip injury.
He has a strained left hip flexor and is batting .095 with 13 strikeouts in 21 at-bats. Rasmus signed a one-year contract in February. .
The move by the Orioles came before Saturday’s game with the Yankees and hours after Baltimore beat New York 7-3 Friday night on Pedro Alvarez’s 14th-inning grand slam.
Baltimore recalled rookie right-hander Jimmy Yacabonis from Triple-A Norfolk. He made 14 relief appearances last year.
