The Kernels announced Monday that outfielder Randal Grichuk has been placed on the 7-day disabled list after injuring his thumb in Sunday's 8 to 1 win over Wisconsin.

Outfielder Matt Long, who had been on the disabled list since May 3rd after spraining his left wrist, has been activated.

Grichuk was batting .229 with 4 home runs and 21 RBI's in 29 games this year.

The Kernels return home on Monday when they host the Burlington Bees at Perfect Game Field at Veterans Memorial Stadium.
