The Arizona Diamondbacks have placed right-handed pitcher Randall Delgado on the 10-day disabled list and have activated fellow right-hander J.J. Hoover from the 10-day disabled list, according to the Diamondbacks official Twitter account.
Delgado is dealing with inflammation in his right elbow.
The 27-year-old has appeared in 26 games this season, making five starts. Over 62.2 innings of work, he has gone 1-2 with a 3.59 ERA, allowing 60 hits while issuing just 14 walks for a solid WHIP of 1.181. He has also registered 60 strikeouts.
Delgado appeared in 79 games out of the Diamondbacks’ bullpen last year, pitching to the tune of a 4.44 ERA across 75 frames of action. He surrendered 77 hits and struck out 68 batters.
Arizona acquired him in a January 2013 trade that sent outfielder Justin Upton to the Atlanta Braves.
He was primarily a starter during his first season with the Diamondbacks, with 19 of his 20 outings coming as starts. He went 5-7 with a 4.26 ERA over 116.1 innings, surrendering 116 hits while tallying 79 strikeouts.
Since then, Delgado has mainly pitched out of the bullpen.
The 29-year-old Hoover has made 31 relief appearances for Arizona in 2017.
He has recorded a 4.18 ERA over 23.2 frames, giving up 30 hits while striking out 36 hitters. The Pittsburgh native signed with the Diamondbacks as a free agent this past January.
Hoover spent the first five years of his career as a reliever for the Cincinnati Reds, producing mixed results.
His best season with the Reds came in 2013, when he posted a 2.86 ERA across 66 innings while striking out 67 hitters.
The Diamondbacks are currently 53-38 and have fallen 9.5 games behind the streaking Los Angeles Dodgers for first place in the National League West Division.
