PHOENIX (AP) --The Arizona Diamondbacks have placed reliever Aaron Heilman on the 15-day disabled list with right shoulder tendinitis and recalled rookie pitcher Josh Collmenter from Triple-A Reno.

Heilman's move to the DL is retroactive to April 14. It's the first time the 32-year-old right-hander has gone on the disabled list in his nine-year major league career.

Heilman has a 12.15 ERA in four games with Arizona this season. He was charged with six runs on seven hits and a walk over 1 2-3 innings Wednesday night against St. Louis.

The 25-year-old Collmenter allowed two hits and struck out seven over six innings in his lone start for Reno last Sunday at Salt Lake City.
