Diamondbacks IF Cliff Pennington undergoes successful surgery on thumb

Arizona Diamondbacks infielder Cliff Pennington is likely to be out at least 10 weeks as he recovers from surgery on his left thumb.

Pennington suffered the injury — a sprained ligament — last week during a tag attempt of San Diego Padres shortstop Everth Cabrera. He was placed on the disabled list Tuesday, and Didi Gregorius was recalled from Triple-A Reno in a corresponding move.

In 33 games played for the Diamondbacks this season, Pennington is hitting .243 with four doubles, a triple and six RBI.
