OAKLAND, Calif. - The Oakland A's placed right-handed pitcher Edward Mujica on the 15-day disabled list with a fractured right thumb, the club announced today. To take his spot on the roster, the A's selected infielder Andy Parrino from Triple-A Nashville. To clear a spot on the 40-man roster, the A's recalled Tyler Ladendorf from Nashville and placed him on the 60-day disabled list as he continues to recover from left ankle surgery.
Mujica was injured last night in the seventh inning on a Bobby Wilson ground ball up the middle. He has not allowed a run in five games and 5.1 innings since being acquired from Boston May 9. Mujica logged a 4.61 ERA in 11 games with the Red Sox before he was designated for assignment May 8.
Parrino was batting .273 with four home runs and 12 RBI in 38 games with Nasvhille. He was tied for the team lead in home runs but also topped the Sounds with 43 strikeouts. The 29-year-old switch hitter was batting .313 in May after hitting .236 in April. Parrino appeared in 33 games at shortstop, three at second base and two at third base
Ladendorf was on the A's Opening Day roster and went 2-for-10 (.200) in four games before he was optioned to Nashville April 12 when Josh Reddick was reinstated from the disabled list. He went 8-for-22 (.364) in six games with the Sounds before injuring his ankle and requiring surgery.
