Athletics put Chad Pinder (hamstring) on injured list

The Oakland Athletics put infielder/outfielder Chad Pinder on the 10-day injured list with a right hamstring strain.

What It Means:

Pinder suffered the injury while running to first base on the final out of Wednesday's game against the Houston Astros. Athletics manager Bob Melvin indicated that Pinder will likely miss at least a month. The Athletics purchased the contract of infielder Jacob Wilson from Triple-A Las Vegas in a corresponding roster move. Matt Chapman is replacing Pinder on third base Thursday and hitting fifth versus Astros' right-hander Lance McCullers.

numberFire’s models project Chapman for 10.4 FanDuel points and he has a $3,600 salary on Thursday. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Athletics have an implied total of 4.0 runs. Among Thursday's listed starters, McCullers is registering the worst walk rate this season (12.7 percent).
