The Red Sox’s Shane Victorino is on the disabled list with a strained right hamstring for the second time this season.

ST. PETERSBURG — The Red Sox on Saturday placed RF Shane Victorino on the 15-day disabled list for the second time this season.

Both times it has been because of a strained right hamstring. He was sidelined from the start of the season until he was activated April 24. OF Daniel Nava was recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket.

Also, DH David Ortiz and 1B Mike Napoli were not listed in Saturday's lineup against the Rays because of injuries.

Manager John Farrell said Ortiz has a calf injury. Napoli is still feeling the flu symptoms that sidelined him Wednesday and Thursday in addition to hamstring, calf and finger issues. "We're beat up," Farrell said.

ARENADO TO DL: The Rockies placed 3B Nolan Arenado on the 15-day disabled list one day after he broke his left middle finger on a head-first slide into second base. A decision on surgery or other treatment options won't be made until Arenado is examined by a specialist. The team recalled INF Josh Rutledge from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

ORIOLES-PADRES TRADE: Baltimore addressed its lack of depth at catcher, acquiring Nick Hundley from San Diego in a trade for LH reliever Troy Patton. Orioles starting C Matt Wieters is on the disabled list with a strained right elbow.

CARDINALS: LH reliever Kevin Siegrist, tied for the team lead with 23 appearances, went on the 15-day disabled list with a strained pitching forearm. … CF Peter Bourjos was a late scratch because of a stomach virus.

NATIONALS: 1B Adam LaRoche, out since May 9 with a right quad strain, is on track to rejoin the team when eligible today.

RANGERS: RF Shin-Soo Choo was pulled in the sixth inning with a sore left ankle.

YANKEES: 2B Brian Roberts was out of the starting lineup again a day after he fouled a pitch off his right knee.

EXHIBITION: Ivan Rodriguez hit a two-run homer to tie it in the top of the sixth inning, and the Knucksies and Wizards — teams made up of six Hall of Famers and 30 former major leaguers — played to a 4-4 finish in the rain-shortened Hall of Fame Classic in Cooperstown, N.Y. Former Jefferson High standout Luis Gonzalez homered.
