The Baltimore Orioles have placed reliever Darren O’Day and outfielder Craig Gentry on the 10-day disabled list.

O’Day hurt his left hamstring while fielding a bunt on Tuesday night and Gentry sustained a left rib fracture when hit by a pitch in Atlanta on Friday.

It’s the second trip to the DL this season for O’Day Julian Love Jersey , who missed a month with a hyperextended elbow.

This injury could also result in a lengthy absence. Manager Buck Showalter said, ”Not sure we can put a timeframe on it. It’s pretty sore.”

The sidearmer is 0-2 with a 3.60 ERA.

Gentry is batting .244 with a team-high 10 steals.

Baltimore recalled utility man Steve Wilkerson and right-hander Jimmy Yacabonis from Triple-A Norfolk. Wilkerson made his major league debut last week, and Yacabonis is expected to start Thursday against Seattle in place of Dylan Bundy, who went on the disabled list Tuesday.

Running backs occupy a strange place within the NFL positional hierarchy right now. For as much as a game-breaking back can thrill both fans and their fantasy owners while bearing the potential to affect results (look no further than Corey Clement in the Super Bowl), they tend to be approached cautiously by talent evaluators , be it through draft decisions, trades or contract negotiations.To put it simply, too much can go wrong and mar their value. Running backs typically see their value plummet as they near their dreaded thirties, if they are even fortunate enough to get that far. The combination of being so reliant on speed and dynamic movement coupled with being tackled by much larger men every time they touch the ball makes those that play the position rather vulnerable. This tenuous playing existence helps explain why so many teams, including the Super Bowl champion Eagles Quinnen Williams Jersey , have opted for a committee-based system.Now, NFL teams can protect themselves all they want, but evaluation errors still happen. Consider that every NFL team had a chance to draft Kareem Hunt and Alvin Kamara before they each ultimately fell to the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft. Conservative tendencies towards runners or not, teams will forever fall victim to over- or undervaluing backs who, despite their sometimes limited shelf life , can make or break your offence. As these 15 lopsided trades involving running backs show, the next head-shaking RB transaction you hear about will hardly be the first.
