ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -The Florida Marlins placed starting pitcher Ricky Nolasco on the 15-day disabled list because of right elbow inflammation Saturday.
This is the second time the right-hander has been on the DL this season. He missed most of April with inflammation in the elbow.
Marlins manager Fredi Gonzalez said Nolasco, who is 1-2 with a 5.48 ERA, may not resume throwing for a week or so.
Florida purchased the contract of pitcher Justin Miller from Triple-A Albuquerque. The right-hander will work out of the bullpen.
Pitcher Jose Garcia, sidelined by a right elbow injury, was transferred from the 15-day to the 60-day disabled list.
Wes Obermueller could make a spot start next Thursday or Friday for the Marlins.
