 MILWAUKEE (AP) -The Milwaukee Brewers placed pitcher Ben Sheets on the 15-day disabled list Monday with a sprained finger on his pitching hand.
The right-hander was injured Saturday during his start against Colorado. Sheets, who turns 29 on Wednesday, said he ``felt something pop, snap.''
Monday's MRI revealed no further damage to the middle finger, and Sheets (10-4) was expected to have additional tests Tuesday.
Rookie Yovani Gallardo (1-1) is scheduled to take Sheets' spot in the rotation Thursday when the Brewers host Arizona.
The Brewers also placed reliever Chris Spurling on the bereavement list due to a family emergency. He is expected to rejoin the team Thursday or Friday.
To fill their spots, Milwaukee summoned left-hander Manny Parra and right-hander Grant Balfour from Class AAA Nashville. In four starts, Parra was 3-1 with a 1.73 ERA, including a perfect game.
The Brewers claimed reliever Balfour off waivers from Cincinnati over the winter after he had shoulder and elbow surgeries. In 23 relief appearances with Nashville, he was 1-1 with a 1.74 ERA and six saves, with 46 strikeouts in 31 innings.
