One week after potential call-up Andrew Brown suffered an oblique injury, corner infielder

Lutz
Zach Lutz suffered the same fate.

Lutz was forced to depart Las Vegas' 13-9 win Sunday against Salt Lake with the injury.

Lutz started at third base Sunday, and has only played in four games at first base this season. But he is on the 40-man roster and would have been a viable call-up, even for a backup role, if Ike Davis were to be demoted.

Lutz is batting .277 with four homers and 26 RBIs in 147 at-bats with the 51s this season. He had been hitting .343 with three homers and 14 RBIs in May.
