Tampa Bay Rays catcher Curt Casali was put on the 15-day disabled list one day after straining his left hamstring running the bases after hitting a home run Tuesday against the Minnesota Twins.

Casali's leg started getting tight en route to first base after his 10th home run, and ninth since the All-Star break, in the fifth inning. He slowly finished his trip around the bases with a slight limp before heading toward the clubhouse.
