ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — The Tampa Bay Rays have put third baseman Matt Duffy on the 10-day disabled list because of a strained right hamstring.

He was hurt running the bases in Monday's 8-4 win over the Texas Rangers. He describes the injury as a mild strain that will take about five days to a week to heal.

Duffy missed all of last season because of Achilles' tendon surgery and a heel injury.

The Rays purchased the contract of Brandon Snyder from Triple-A Durham, where the infielder hit .154 with a homer and three RBIs in eight games.

Tampa Bay also transferred center fielder Kevin Kiermaier from the 10- to 60-day disabled list. Kiermaier is to have surgery Friday for a torn ligament in his right thumb and will be out two to three months.
