Braves place Ayala on DL with anxiety disorder

by The Associated Press

ATLANTA (AP) — The Atlanta Braves right-hander Luis Ayala has been placed on the 15-day disabled list because of an anxiety disorder.

Tuesday's move was retroactive to April 25. Right-hander David Carpenter was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett in time for Tuesday night's game against the Washington Nationals.

Atlanta acquired the 35-year-old Ayala from the Baltimore Orioles on April 10 for minor league left-hander Chris Jones. Ayala was 0-1 with a 3.86 ERA in five games with the Braves, all in relief.

Carpenter did not appear in a game during a brief earlier stay in Atlanta before he was sent back to Gwinnett on April 22.
