PHOENIX (AP) — Colorado Rockies second baseman DJ LeMahieu was placed on the 10-day disabled list Saturday because off a strained left oblique.

LeMahieu left Friday’s game against the Arizona Diamondbacks in the fourth inning with the injury. It’s his second stint on the DL this season after he injured his left thumb in May.
