RHP Hellickson To Go On DL With Shoulder Fatigue

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Tampa Bay Rays say they will place right-handed pitcher Jeremy Hellickson on the 15-day disabled list with right shoulder fatigue.

Right-hander Chris Archer will be recalled from Triple-A Durham on Wednesday, when he is scheduled to make his major league debut and start against the Washington Nationals.

Hellickson is 4-3 with a 3.45 ERA in 78 1-3 innings over 13 starts. He said X-rays of his shoulder did not reveal any damage and he only expects to miss two starts.

Archer is 4-8 with a 4.81 ERA in 14 starts for Durham this season. Tampa Bay recalled outfielder Rich Thompson from Durham on Tuesday.
