Arizona Diamondbacks third baseman Jake Lamb was placed on the 10-day disabled list on Tuesday due to a sprained AC joint in his left shoulder.

Lamb injured his shoulder during the Diamondbacks 15-inning win over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Monday night in Phoenix. The Diamondbacks recalled right-handed pitcher Matt Koch from Triple-A Reno on Tuesday to take his roster spot.

Last season, Lamb was one of the Diamondbacks’ best offensive players. He batted .248 with 30 home runs and 105 RBIs in 149 games. Lamb was also named to the National League All-Star team for the first time in his career.

Lamb was already off to a good start this season before getting injured. In 18 at-bats, he’s hitting .278 and has collected five RBIs. As long as he does not have any setbacks, Lamb should be ready to return to the Diamondbacks in 10 days.
