Zobrist to DL, Figueroa called up
UPDATE, 8:15: Maddon said they expect Zobrist may need a litlte longer than the two weeks to return.
Also, Figueroa will get some time at 2B as well, that he will decided between the three on a daily basis.
DEVELOPING: Rays 2B Ben Zobrist was placed on the 15-day DL due to his dislocated left thumb, and INF Cole Figueroa was called up.
Zobrist said he hopes to be back in two weeks, but it could take longer.
"I'm not surprised,'' Zobrist said. "That's probably the safer approach than trying to push it and maybe have an unstable joint and trying to come back earlier than than that 15 days. So it's probably a smart decision.''
Sean Rodriguez and Logan Forsythe are expected to handle most of the duty at second base.
