The Oakland Athletics have placed Ben Zobrist on the DL with a medial meniscus tear. Zobrist was hitting .240 in his first season with the A's, with 1 home run and 8 RBI. The team will bring up Max Muncy from Triple-A Nashville.
No word on the timetable for Zobrist. He tried to play through the injury but the team is playing it safe by placing him on the DL. There is still a chance the injury requires arthroscopic surgery.
