Recently acquired Tampa Bay Rays' outfielder Tommy Pham was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a fractured right foot on Friday, according to the team.

Pham was hit on the foot by a pitch from Andrew Heaney of the Los Angeles Angels in the Rays' 4-2 win on Thursday. Pham stayed in the game, scored later in the inning for a 3-0 lead and lined out in the fifth before exiting with the injury. He went 0-for-2 with a run.

It was just Pham's second game with the Rays, who acquired the 30-year-old outfielder from the Cardinals in a July 31 trade deadline deal for three minor leaguers.

The 30-year-old Pham, who went 0-3 with a run in his Rays debut in Wednesday's 7-2 victory versus the Angels, was batting .248 with 14 homers, 41 RBIs and 10 stolen bases in 98 games before the trade. For his career, the five-year veteran boasts a .271 batting average with 51 homers, 149 RBIs and 39 stolen bases.

The Rays recalled left-hander Adam Kolarek from Triple-A Durham. He is 2-0 with a 7.94 ERA in 19 relief appearances for Tampa Bay since his 2017 MLB debut.
