OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — The Oakland Athletics have placed designated hitter Khris Davis on the 10-day injured list with a left hip/oblique contusion.

Davis was injured May 5 chasing a foul ball in Pittsburgh when he ran into the railing near left field at PNC Park. Davis was removed from the game and played sparingly over the next two weeks before the decision was made to put him on the IL.

The move Friday is retroactive to May 22.

Davis hit 40-plus home runs with at least 102 RBIs in each of the past three seasons. He has 12 home runs and 29 RBIs in 43 games this year.

Outfielder Skye Bolt was recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas.
