The Phillies on Tuesday placed relief pitcher Joe Savery on the 15-day disabled list with elbow stiffness, and recalled left-handed pitcher Raul Valdes from Triple A Lehigh Valley.

Savery is 2-0 this season with 1.38 ERA in 10 appearances with the Phillies.

Valdes also has made 10 appearances this season for the Phillies but has a 7.65 ERA. He made the opening day roster but was optioned to Triple A in May after struggling out of the bullpen. He is 1-0 with 21 strikeouts in 20 innings.
