Rays placed SS Adeiny Hechavarria on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to May 18, with a right hamstring strain.
Hechavarria sustained the injury in Thursday's game but hoped he could avoid a DL stint. Alas, the team made the move Saturday, but it's an indication he may be able to come back when first eligible in late May. Daniel Robertson will likely fill in at short while Hechavarria is out.

Hechavarria suffered that swelling and bruising when a ball off the bat of Ronald Acuna hit a suspended speaker at Tropicana Field and ricocheted off the playing surface into Hechavarria's face. He said he might not be able to play Wednesday, but it sounds like the 29-year-old shortstop avoided a concussion.
