MILWAUKEE Another day, another player heading to the disabled list for the Milwaukee Brewers.
The team announced shortly after their 7-1 win over the Diamondbacks on Friday that shortstop Cesar Izturis will be sent to the 15-day disabled list with a strained left hamstring. Infielder Edwin Maysonet will return to the Brewers from Triple-A Nashville to take his place.
Since filling in for injured shortstop Alex Gonzalez, who is out for the season with a torn ACL, Izturis has started in 15 games for the Brewers. He was batting .200 with one home run and four RBI in 2012.
Trying to score on a Corey Hart single, Izturis pulled up awkwardly after hitting third base, choosing not to go for home, despite the go signal from third base coach Ed Sedar. Izturis reached for the back of his left leg and immediately left the game after Brewers manager Ron Roenicke came over to check on him.
"It looked like when he hit the bag, I could see him pull up right away," Roenicke said.
