PHILADELPHIA (AP) -Octavio Dotel was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a right shoulder strain by the Atlanta Braves on Friday.
Dotel, who was acquired by the Braves from Kansas City on July 31 for right-hander Kyle Davies, was 0-0 with an 8.31 ERA in five games with the Braves.
Dotel was 2-1 with a 3.91 ERA and 11 saves in 14 chances with Kansas City this season, after missing the first seven weeks with a strained left oblique muscle. He has bounced back well after a major elbow injury that plagued him in 2005 and 2006.
The Braves recalled right-hander Manny Acosta from Triple-A Richmond to take his place.
