SEATTLE (AP) -Mariners All-Star closer J.J. Putz was put on the 15-day disabled list with a ribcage injury Wednesday.
Putz, who converted 40 of 42 save opportunities last season, blew one Tuesday night by allowing a go-ahead home run to Texas' Josh Hamilton in the top of the ninth inning.
Putz felt discomfort on a pitch to the batter before Hamilton, Michael Young, and then had an MRI exam after the game. It revealed a mild inflammation where the cartilage attaches to a rib on his right side.
Seattle filled his roster spot by purchasing the contract of right-hander Roy Corcoran from Triple- Tacoma.
