The A’s injury woes continued Friday as outfielder Conor Jackson was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a lower abdominal strain. Jeff Larish was called up from Triple-A Sacramento to take Jackson’s spot on the roster.
It’s been an injury plagued season for Jackson, who latest DL stint is his third this season. He came off the DL on Monday after sitting out over a month with a strained right hamstring. That same injury sidelined for over two weeks from April 19 to May 6.
It’s the 23rd time the A’s have used the DL this season, two shy of the team record set in 2008. We’re just going down to the clubhouse now to hopefully find out more from Jackson himself.
