OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - The Oakland Athletics have placed infielder/outfielder Ben Zobrist on the 15-day disabled list with torn cartilage in his left knee.

Oakland purchased the contract of infielder Max Muncy from Triple-A Nashville on Saturday to take Zobrist's place on the 25-man roster. Muncy is starting at third base for Saturday's game against Houston for his major league debut.

Zobrist was batting .240 with one homer and eight RBIs in 14 games. He has started games at second base, left field and right field so far this season.

Muncy was batting .293 with one homer and 10 RBIs in 15 games with Nashville.

The A's designated left-hander Eury De La Rosa for assignment to clear a spot on the 40-man roster for Muncy.
