Back strain puts A's shortstop Crosby on DL
SEATTLE -- The Oakland Athletics placed shortstop Bobby Crosby on the disabled list Friday, believing rest is the best remedy for his strained lower back.
Infielder D'Angelo Jimenez was called up from Triple-A Sacramento to take Crosby's spot, and the A's designated left-hander Randy Keisler for assignment to clear a place on the 40-man roster for Jimenez.
