The Colorado Rockies have placed catcher Jeff Iannetta on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right hamstring.
The move was announced moments before the first pitch of Sunday's game against the Tigers. Iannetta strained the hamstring while running the bases in Saturday's 4-3 win over Detroit.
Yorvit Torrealba replace Iannetta on Saturday and started on Sunday. The Rockies purchased the contract of catcher Paul Phillips from Triple-A Colorado Springs.
To make room on the 40-man roster, the Rockies moved infielder Jeff Baker (hand) to the 60-day disabled list.
Phillips did not arrive in Detroit in time for the first pitch of Sunday's game, but was expected to arrive in the early innings.
