The Arizona Diamondbacks have placed pitcher J.J. Putz on the 15-day disabled list with a dislocated right little finger, recalling right-hander Chaz Roe from Triple-A Reno, according to general manager Kevin Towers.
The 36-year-old Putz suffered the injury Friday, in the seventh inning of the Diamondbacks’ contest versus the Philadelphia Phillies, while trying to field a ground ball.
Over his last 19 appearances, Putz managed a 0.57 ERA (one earned run in 15.2 innings pitched), striking out 15 and walking six. In all, he was 3-1 with six saves and a 2.43 ERA in 35 appearances this season.
For Roe, who made his major league debut earlier in the season, this is his fourth call-up to the Diamondbacks of the year. The 26-year-old is 1-0, allowing three earned runs in 5.0 innings pitched, over five appearances with the Diamondbacks. He is 0-1 with eight saves and a 1.11 ERA in 25 appearances in the minor leagues in 2013, splitting time between Double-A Mobile and Triple-A Reno.
