Raburn (personal) was activated from the bereavement list Wednesday and subsequently placed on the 10-day disabled list with a left trapezius strain, Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post reports. The veteran outfielder apparently got a little banged up diving for a ball in Friday's contest, so he'll head to the DL to rest up his injury. The DL stint is backdated to July 23, so he can return on August 2 if he's ready. No corresponding move needed to be made since he was moved straight from the bereavement list, so look for Adam Lind to continue logging starts in left field until Raburn is back in the fold.
Raburn was placed on the bereavement list prior to Sunday's game, Mark Zuckerman of MASNsports.com reports. Raburn will be away from the team for a few days to attend to a loss in the family. In the meantime, Andrew Stevenson will get the call from Triple-A to provide outfield depth.
Raburn will be placed on the bereavement list Sunday, Dan Kolko of MASN Sports reports. Raburn was scratched from Saturday's lineup and manager Dusty Baker later revealed that Raburn is dealing with the loss of his grandfather.
Raburn was scratched from Saturday's starting lineup. A reason for his removal was not immediately provided. Chris Heisey enters the lineup in left field, batting second, while Wilmer Difo moves down to the eight hole against lefty Anthony Banda.
Raburn is batting second and playing left field Thursday against the Cubs. With Chicago trotting left-hander Jon Lester to the mound, the righty-batting Raburn again assumes a short-side platoon role during the getaway day contest. Raburn appears to merely be spelling Brian Goodwin, and though Raburn is off to an 11-for-34 start in limited action, these starts will remain fleeting.
