Oakland A's slugger Yoenis Cespedes was scheduled to play in his first game Saturday, since missing four games due to a strain in his left hand.

That plan did not go as the A's had expected.

Cespedes was not only scratched from the lineup against the Detroit Tigers, but Cespedes was placed on the 15-day disabled list before the game began on Saturday.

Cespedes felt discomfort in his injured left hand after two rounds of batting practice, forcing the scratch and the placement on the DL. The DL stint will be retroactive to May 7th, but there is currently no timetable for his return.

The A's are hopeful that the injury will get better over the next week, as manager Bob Melvin's spokesperson told the media, "(Cespedes) took batting practice and was still feeling it a bit, so I wanted to be precautionary with it."

Cespedes thought he had put the injury behind him. Unfortunately for the A's, he will be missing at least another week and they will be missing their team leader in RBI.
