Punto placed on DL, Freiman recalled

As expected, the A’s placed infielder Nick Punto on the 15-day disabled list Sunday. He suffered a strained right hamstring Saturday while rounding third base in the fifth inning of an 8-3 victory over the Kansas City Royals.

The A’s recalled first baseman Nate Freiman from Triple-A Sacramento to take Punto’s place on the active roster. He was batting .284 for the River Cats, with 15 home runs and 74 RBI.
