Starting pitcher Luke Weaver was placed on the 10-day injured list by the Arizona Diamondbacks after an early exit from his start on Sunday due to right forearm tightness.
In a corresponding move, Jimmie Sherfy was recalled from Triple-A Reno, the team announced on Monday.
The trip to the IL for Weaver now leaves another hole in the D-backs rotation, although Taylor Clarke is expected to start on Thursday for the D-backs at Coors Field against the Rockies.
Zack Greinke, Merrill Kelly and Robbie Ray are scheduled to start the first three games of the four-game series in Colorado.
The D-backs have not announced a starting pitcher for the first game of a weekend homestand against the New York Mets beginning on Friday.
Sherfy has appeared in four games for the D-backs this season posting a 1.08 ERA in 8.1 innings pitched. He’s posted a strikeout-to-walk ratio of 8:1.
Weaver was enjoying the best season of his four-year career in the majors so far. In 11 starts for Arizona in 2019, the 25-year-old posted a 4-3 record with a 3.03 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 68 strikeouts.
