Carmona on DL; Tribe goes with eight relievers for now

By Sheldon Published: July 3, 2011

CINCINNATI: Fausto Carmona went on the 15-day disabled list this morning with a strained right quad, sustained when he fell running to first on a sacrifice bunt in Saturday's 3-1 win over the Reds.

Since Carmona's turn to start doesn't come up until Thursday, the Indians will carry an extra reliever in the meantime. That was easily accomplished today, when closer Chris Perez returned from Florida, where he attended the funeral of his grandmother. Josh Judy was called up from Columbus to replace Perez for two days and will stay on the roster.
