MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The New York Mets have placed relief pitcher Daisuke Matsuzaka on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to Friday, with right elbow inflammation on Saturday.

Matsuzaka returned to New York on Friday for an exam after experiencing soreness in the elbow. He is 1-0 with one save and a 3.25 ERA in 19 games in relief this season and 2-3 with a 4.24 ERA in nine starts this year.

The Mets moved Matsuzaka back to the bullpen when starter Jonathon Niese returned from the disabled list on July 21.
