The Oakland Athletics announced Tuesday that they have placed infielder Aledmys Diaz on the 10-day injured list with a strained left hamstring. The team recalled Nick Allen from Las Vegas to fill Diaz’s roster spot.

The move is retroactive to April 30. The team initially held off from making a roster move in hopes that Diaz would progress enough with two full days off, but that was apparently not the case. Diaz inked a two-year deal with Oakland during the offseason, but he has gotten off to a disappointing start hitting just .153/.226/.212 with a 30 wRC+ over his first 93 plate appearances.
Allen began the season on the major league roster, but was optioned after a 1-for-16 start at the plate. He has played better at Triple A where he was hitting .339/.435/.525 in 14 games.
