Rockies placed RHP Matt Daley on the 15-day disabled list with right shoulder inflammation.

Daley allowed seven runs over six innings in his time with the Rockies, but it appears that he wasn't quite right physically. He said the shoulder initially started to bother him in his May 27 outing against the Cardinals. Daley did note that the injury is different than the one he dealt with last year, as the pain this time around is more in the front of his shoulder. He'll fly back to Denver to be examined by team doctors before the Rox decide what to do with him.
