CHICAGO (AP) — The Tampa Bay Rays have placed second baseman Brad Miller on the 10-day disabled list because of a strained left groin and selected right-hander Ryan Weber’s contract from Triple-A Durham.

The Rays announced the moves Sunday night, hours after Miller was hurt running out of the batter’s box on a single in a loss to Boston. Tampa Bay was scheduled to open a three-game series against the Chicago White Sox on Monday.

Weber becomes the third player born in St. Petersburg to play for the Rays, joining pitcher Doug Waechter (2003-06) and first baseman Casey Kotchman (2011).

Center fielder Kevin Kiermaier is out of the lineup after bruising his right foot on Sunday.
