The Kansas City Royals have placed third baseman Mike Moustakas on the 15-day disabled list with a left thumb fracture.

In a corresponding move, the team recalled Cheslor Cuthbert from Triple-A Omaha.

Moustakas missed three of the team’s last four games after injuring himself last week against the Angels while making a tag at third base. The injury flared up during Sunday’s game against the Mariners. His DL designation is retroactive to May 5.

Moustakas, an All-Star last season, is hitting .258 with seven homers and 13 RBIs through his first 25 games.
