The Cincinnati Reds placed third baseman Mike Moustakas on the 10-day injured list Tuesday, one day after he exited a game with a strained left calf.
Moustakas was placed in a cast Tuesday. He was injured while running the bases during the fourth inning of Monday's game against the New York Mets.
"It just grabbed on me," Moustakas said after Monday's 5-1 loss. "Felt a little tight earlier on but didn't think anything of it. And then, when I went around first base, it kind of grabbed and I wasn't able to really run."
Moustakas, 33, is batting just .200 with six homers and 21 RBIs in 73 games this season. Overall, he has a .247 career average with 202 homers and 631 RBIs across 1,309 games over 12 seasons with the Kansas City Royals (2011-18), Milwaukee Brewers (2018-19) and Reds (2020-22).
Second baseman Jonathan India exited Monday's game with a hamstring injury but apparently escaped a significant injury. He was in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Mets.
Cincinnati also recalled utility man Alejo Lopez from Triple-A Louisville. Lopez, 26, batted .246 with one RBI in 30 games with the Reds earlier this season.
