Rockies place reliever Ottavino on disabled list with oblique injury

DENVER — The Rockies have placed right-handed reliever Adam Ottavino on the 10-day disabled list with a strained left oblique.

Ottavino has been a big piece of Colorado’s bullpen this season with a 3-0 record and a 0.95 ERA. His 45 strikeouts are the third most among major league relievers.

The 32-year-old Ottavino underwent Tommy John surgery in May 2015 and returned in July 2016.

To take his spot on the roster, the Rockies recalled right-hander Scott Oberg from Triple-A Albuquerque on Monday. Oberg made 10 appearances earlier this season with Colorado, going 1-0 with a 6.55 ERA.
