Athletics place Ike Davis on DL

Oakland, CA ( - The Oakland Athletics placed first baseman Ike Davis on the 15-day disabled list with a strained quad, retroactive to May 14.

Davis was hurt in last Monday's loss to the Red Sox. He made an appearance as a pinch-hitter on Wednesday and has not played since. In 33 games for the A's this season, he is batting .282 with a .348 on-base percentage and two home runs.

To take Davis' place on the active roster, Oakland recalled outfielder Craig Gentry from Triple-A Nashville. He was just 3-for-35 for the A's before being optioned to the minors on May 6.
