The Tampa Bay Rays placed right-hander Pete Fairbanks on the 15-day injured list with left hip inflammation.
The move is retroactive to Sunday. In a corresponding move, the club recalled RHP Trevor Kelley from Triple-A Durham.
Fairbanks said his hip “locked up” on him while warming up ahead of the ninth inning during Sunday’s 11-10 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers. He did not enter the game. He last pitched Friday.
Fairbanks, 29, is 0-1 with a 1.54 ERA in 13 relief appearances this season. Fairbanks had an IL stint earlier this season with right forearm inflammation.
Kelley, 30, is 0-1 with a 5.40 ERA in six games (two starts) for the Rays this season.
