Diamondbacks' Robbie Ray: Lands on IL

Ray (back) was placed on the 10-day injured list Thursday.

Ray exited his start against the Rockies on Wednesday prior to the third inning with a right lower back spasm; while Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports that Ray's MRI didn't reveal anything overly serious -- just back spasms -- the injury will still force the left-hander to spend at least 10 days on the shelf. Jon Duplantier was summoned from the minors in a corresponding move and is a candidate to replace Ray in the rotation for the time being.
