The Arizona Diamondbacks (@Dbacks) have placed right-handed pitcher Enrique Burgos on the 15-day disabled list with right shoulder tendinitis and recalled left-handed pitcher Vidal Nuño from Triple-A Reno, as announced by D-backs Sr. Vice President & General Manager Dave Stewart.
Burgos, 24, has 25 strikeouts in 13 relief appearances (13.2 IP) for the D-backs, leading Major League relievers with a 16.46 strikeouts-per-9.0-innings ratio. He recorded his first career save on May 18 @ Marlins and was the first D-backs rookie to save consecutive games (May 18-19 @ Marlins) since Juan (now J.C.) Gutierrez on Sept. 26-27, 2009 vs. Padres. In 13 appearances, Burgos is 0-2 with a 4.61 ERA (7 ER in 13.2 IP) and a .235 opponents average.
Nuño, 27, will begin his second stint with the D-backs (also May 11-15). In his 1 relief appearance this season, on May 11 vs. Nationals, he had a career-high 8 strikeouts over 6.2 innings, the most by a D-backs reliever since Randy Johnson's 7.0 innings on July 18, 2001 @ Padres.
Nuño has gone 3-3 with a 3.38 ERA (19 ER in 50.2 IP) in 8 starts (5 quality) with the Aces.
