Atlanta, GA (Sports Network) - The Atlanta Braves placed relief pitcher Eric
O'Flaherty on the 15-day disabled list prior to Saturday's game against the
Los Angeles Dodgers.

inning of work in Friday's win over Los Angeles, is dealing with an elbow
The left-hander has compiled a 3-0 record and a 2.50 earned run average over
19 appearances this season and becomes the second key member of the Atlanta
bullpen to land on the DL in as many days. Jordan Walden was shelved on Friday
due to inflammation in his right shoulder.
Atlanta recalled pitcher Cory Rasmus from Triple-A Gwinnett to fill the roster
The 25-year-old, and younger brother of Blue Jays outfielder Colby
Rasmus, has converted all seven of his save opportunities while posting
an 0.93 in 19 games for Gwinnett this season.
