PHILADELPHIA (AP) -Phillies reliever Ryan Madson was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right shoulder after Philadelphia's 5-1 victory over Pittsburgh on Sunday.
Reliever Geoff Geary was recalled from Triple-A Ottawa and will join the team for Monday's game in Chicago against the Cubs.
Madson left Sunday's game with two outs and an 0-2 count on Jason Bay. He said the injury is very similar to the one that sidelined Brett Myers. A close friend of Madson, Myers was hurt on May 24 and returned from the disabled list on Saturday.
``It's been bothering me for a few days but I thought I could throw through it,'' said Madson, who will have a MRI on Monday. ``Brett has already given me advice on the injury.''
Madson is 2-2 with a 3.05 ERA.
