The Oakland Athletics put left-hander Jesus Luzardo on the injured list Sunday with a hairline fracture in his finger, an injury he suffered while playing a video game.

A's manager Bob Melvin said Luzardo hit his left hand on a table while playing the game before Saturday's start against the Baltimore Orioles.

After getting his hand checked out by the team's training staff and testing it out during warmups, Luzardo was able to start the game as planned. However, he left after giving up six runs (three earned) in three innings and throwing a pair of wild pitches in an 8-4 loss.

An X-ray taken after the game revealed the hairline fracture in his left pinkie.

Luzardo will miss at least 10 days due to the injury. The A's called up left-handed reliever Adam Kolarek from their alternate training site to take Luzardo's place on the active roster.
