Atlanta, United States (AP) –
The Milwaukee Brewers' right-hander, Joakim Soria, was placed on the disabled list for 10 days on Friday due to a strained right groin.
Soria was injured while allowing a Hunter Renfroe grand slam in the ninth inning of Thursday's 8-4 loss at home to San Diego. The Mexican came out after facing two batters.
"We'll just treat it and maybe by the end of the weekend we'll have a better idea," said manager Craig Counsell.
Soria has a 1.59 ERA in seven games since Milwaukee acquired him in a trade with the Chicago White Sox two weeks ago. In 40 matches in total, he is 0-3 with 2.44 earned runs and 16 saves in 20 chances.
The Brewers called right-hander Adrian Houser of Colorado Springs on Triple-A to replace Soria.
Erratic closer Corey Knebel was not available Friday against the Atlanta Braves after conceding four runs, two hits and four walks in the last two games. Counsell said Josh Hader would play the closer role.
