HOUSTON (AP) - The Oakland Athletics have put outfielder Craig Gentry on the 15-day disabled list because of a broken right hand and promoted outfielder Billy Burns from Double-A Midland.

A's manager Bob Melvin said Burns was expected to join the team before Monday night's game in Houston.

Gentry was injured Sunday at Texas when he hit by a pitch. He was on the disabled list at the start of the season with a lower back strain.

Gentry was hitting .264 with 10 RBIs in 80 games with Oakland. Burns was batting .250 with a home run and 23 RBIs in 91 games with Midland.
