The Tampa Bay Rays Thursday placed shortstop Taylor Walls on the 10-day injured list, retroactive to June 23, with right wrist tendinitis.

Walls was scratched from the starting lineup prior to Wednesday’s game with the Boston Red Sox with what was said to be soreness in the wrist.  Manager Kevin Cash said Walls had been dealing with the soreness for some time, but a diving play in the field in Tuesday’s extra-inning loss exacerbated the situation.

The 24-year-old has played in 27 game since his call-up on May 22, hitting .222/.337/.333 with a home run and seven RBI.

To take his place on the active roster, reliever Drew Rasmussen has been recalled from Triple-A Durham.
