Analysis: Semien has apparently been dealing with the injury since the end of spring training, and it could explain why he's hit just .171 with no homers and 11 RBIs thus far. Chad Pinder was recalled from Triple-A Nashville in a corresponding move and is a candidate to take over at shortstop until Semien returns.
