HOUSTON (AP) -The Pittsburgh Pirates placed reliever Salomon Torres on the 15-day disabled list because of right elbow inflammation Saturday.
It is the same injury the right-hander had when he went on the DL on June 10. Manager Jim Tracy said Torres will see a doctor in Pittsburgh on Monday.
``We want to see exactly what we're dealing with and the course of action we're going to take,'' Tracy said.
Torres was 1-4 with a 5.09 ERA in 49 appearances this season.
The Pirates recalled right-handed reliever Romulo Sanchez from Double-A Altoona. He has no major league experience. He was 6-3 with a 2.81 ERA at Altoona.
