ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — The Tampa Bay Rays have placed recently acquired outfielder Tommy Pham on the 10-day disabled list with a fractured right foot.

Pham was hit on the foot by a pitch from Los Angeles Angels left-hander Andrew Heaney on Thursday.

Tampa Bay obtained the 30-year-old and $500,000 in international signing bonus allocation Tuesday from St. Louis for a trio of minor leaguers: outfielder Justin Williams, left-hander Genesis Cabrera and right-hander Roel Ramirez.

Pham had been a member of the Cardinals organization since selected in the 16th round of the 2006 amateur draft. After a series of injuries, the center fielder had a breakout season in 2017 when he hit .306 with 23 homers and 25 steals in 128 games. He was 11th in the NL MVP voting.

Pham hit .248 with 14 home runs, 41 RBIs and 10 stolen bases this season for St. Louis. He was hitless in five at-bats over two games with the Rays.
