A’s place RHP Liam Hendriks on DL, activate RHP Ryan Dull

SEATTLE (AP) The Oakland Athletics have placed right-handed reliever Liam Hendriks on the 10-day disabled list due to a right groin strain.

The A’s were able to make a quick swap of relievers on Saturday, activating Ryan Dull from the disabled list to take Hendriks’ spot. Hendriks left Friday’s series opener against Seattle in the middle of an at-bat in the eighth inning after throwing a pitch. Hendriks had made six appearances early in the season.

Dull had already rejoined the A’s after missing time with a strained right shoulder and was likely to be activated from the disabled list sometime during the weekend series. Dull made three relief appearances with Triple-A Nashville during his rehab assignment.
