BOSTON -- The Minnesota Twins placed right-hander Sonny Gray on the 10-day injured list Sunday with a low-grade strained hamstring a day after he left his start vs. the Boston Red Sox.


To take his place on the roster, the team activated right-hander Cody Stashak, who was on the IL with right biceps tendinitis.

Manager Rocco Baldelli said before Sunday's game at Fenway Park that he doesn't think Gray will miss more than one start.

Gray (0-1), 32, allowed a homer to Alex Verdugo in the second inning before being pulled two batters later with right hamstring tightness in Minnesota's 4-0 loss. Gray was acquired from the Cincinnati Reds in a trade last month.

The veteran appeared to stumble at the bottom of the mound while following through on a pitch during that inning. When Baldelli and the training staff made it to the mound to check on him, the broadcast's television cameras clearly showed Gray tell them "hamstring."
