ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - Tampa Bay Rays second baseman Logan Forsythe was placed on the 15-day disabled list Saturday after tests revealed a hairline fracture of his left shoulder blade.

The move is retroactive to May 10, when Forsythe was hit on the shoulder by a pitch from Felix Hernandez of the Seattle Mariners. He has not played since then, but the Rays considered the shoulder only sore until Saturday’s MRI revealed the slight fracture.

“Yesterday he tried to swing and it just wasn’t working for him,” said manager Kevin Cash.

Forsythe is hitting .308 and leads Rays regulars in hits (33), walks (14) and slugging percentage (.523).

The Rays recalled relief pitcher Danny Farquhar from Triple-A Durham to take Forsythe’s spot on the active roster.
