Cincinnati, OH (Sports Network) - The Cincinnati Reds placed pitcher Jonathan Broxton on the 15-day disabled list on Saturday.

Broxton is dealing with a right elbow flexor mass strain. The move is retroactive to Friday.

The right-hander is 2-2 with a 4.33 ERA in 29 relief appearances this season.

To take his spot on the roster, Cincinnati recalled pitcher Pedro Villarreal from Triple-A Louisville. He made an emergency start for the injured Johnny Cueto on June 5, and allowed six runs on 10 hits over 3 2/3 innings.
