The Diamondbacks will call up a reliever to take Archie Bradley's spot on the roster.

As was to be expected after last night, Archie Bradley has been placed on the disabled list. Reliever Enrique Burgos has been recalled from Mobile to take his roster spot. 

This will be the 24-year old Burgos' first major league stint. He was in the middle of his first season at Mobile, where he has yet to allow a run in 6.2 innings pitched. One can surmise that this was made to add some depth too the bullpen, which worked most of last night's game. When Bradley's spot in the rotation comes up again, Vidal Nuno or Robbie Ray are the likely candidates for promotion. 

According to La Russa in the same interview: "Our expectations are the disabling period will be shorter rather than longer." in regards to Bradley.
