Orioles’ Colby Rasmus heads to 10-day DL with sore hip

The Baltimore Orioles have placed outfielder Colby Rasmus on the 10-day disabled list with a hip injury.

He has a strained left hip flexor and is batting .095 with 13 strikeouts in 21 at-bats. Rasmus signed a one-year contract in February.

The move by the Orioles came before Saturday’s game with the New York Yankees and hours after Baltimore beat New York 7-3 on Friday night on Pedro Alvarez’s 14th-inning grand slam.

Baltimore recalled rookie right-hander Jimmy Yacabonis from Triple-A Norfolk. He made 14 relief appearances last year.

A 3-pointer by Forbes and a layup by Ginobili 30 seconds later gave the Spurs an 82-77 lead with 5:23 remaining.

“He did an amazing job,” Ginobili said of Forbes. “Not only to make shots it’s easy to see the 3s or the two big shots he got, but he played very solid defense, he was a pest chasing them around. We really changed the game when he was on the court.”

Manager Buck Showalter said Harvey “provides the only right-handed length that we have at this point.”

Harvey was scheduled to start Monday for Bowie. Since being drafted 22nd overall in 2013, Harvey is 7-8 with a 2.56 ERA in 38 games, all starts.

Bucks: G Malcolm Brogdon (left quad) returned following a 30-game absence. The 2016-17 NBA Rookie of the Year scored two and played 13 minutes, all in the first half.

A game that had the feel of a Milwaukee blowout turned tight after a cold-shooting second quarter for the Bucks. They missed their first 12 shots in the period, with a Bledsoe-to-Middleton layup finally ending the scoreless streak with 5:07 left.

The pace picked up again once facilitators Bledsoe and Middleton (18 points) re-entered the game, with Milwaukee taking a 45-42 lead at halftime.
