The Philadelphia Phillies put closer Jose Contreras on the 15-day disabled list because of a strained right elbow. The move is retroactive to Friday.
General Manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said Contreras, 39, will return to Philadelphia on Monday to be seen by a team doctor.
Ryan Madson will move into the closer's role. To take Contreras' spot on the roster, the Phillies will purchase the contract of Michael Stutes from Lehigh Valley.
The Milwaukee Brewers' Zack Greinke pitched 22/3 innings, giving up three hits and two runs with a walk and two strikeouts in a rehabilitation start at triple-A Nashville. The right-hander started the season on the disabled list for his new team because of a broken rib. In the third, he gave up two runs on consecutive triples and a sacrifice fly. Greinke threw 54 pitches and said he will need at least one more minor league start before joining the Brewers. … Minnesota Twins left fielder Delmon Young sat out his fifth consecutive game because of a rib injury. Manager Ron Gardenhire said he hopes Young will be ready for the series opener against the Tampa Bay Rays on Tuesday after a day off Monday. … The Toronto Blue Jays put second baseman Aaron Hill (strained right hamstring) on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 20, and will recall right-hander Jesse Litsch from triple-A Las Vegas to start Tuesday at the Texas Rangers.
