DENVER (AP) -The Colorado Rockies placed pitcher Zach McClellan on the 15-day disabled list Friday with right shoulder inflammation and called up right-hander Darren Clarke from Double-A Tulsa.
McClellan was 1-0 with a 5.79 ERA in 12 relief appearances for the Rockies before being placed on the DL retroactive to May 14.
Clarke, 26, has never appeared in a major league game. The 6-foot-8 Clarke opened the season on the minor league disabled list after injuring his groin in spring training. He was activated May 1 and threw 6 1-3 scoreless innings in five relief appearances for the Drillers.
``Clarke has pitched well at Tulsa,'' manager Clint Hurdle said. ``When he has been healthy, he's pitched effectively. We'll get him involved here as we try to weave our bullpen to be more effective than it's been.''
The Rockies have used 20 pitchers this season, tied for most in the majors with the New York Yankees.
