The Colorado Rockies placed closer Wade Davis on the 10-day injured list with a left oblique strain.

The injury was not considered severe, according to a report from the Denver Post.

Davis (1-1, 2.45 ERA) has seven saves in as many chances this season, striking out 18 and walking 10 in 14 2/3 innings. Davis, 33, led the National League with 43 saves and 69 appearances last season, his first in Colorado.

Colorado called up right-handed reliever Jairo Diaz from Triple-A Albuquerque, adding him to the 40-man roster by moving left-handed starter Tyler Anderson to the 60-day injured list.

Diaz was 1-0 with a 0.45 ERA in 20 innings in Albuquerque. Diaz, who turns 28 on Monday, has appeared in 30 major league games, the last coming in 2017 with the Rockies.
