The Arizona Diamondbacks placed left-handed Robbie Ray on the 10-day injured list Thursday, one day after he left his start before the third inning because of lower back spasms. Ray (10-7, 3.99 ERA) told manager Torey Lovullo he felt discomfort after he pitched the second inning of the game at the Colorado Rockies. He went back out to throw one warmup pitch before coming out.

Lovullo said of the injury after the game, "We're optimistic it's not going to be a big miss." Ray ascended to the role of staff ace after the team traded Zack Greinke to the Houston Astros on July 31. The 27-year-old had been mentioned in plenty of trade speculation, although the Diamondbacks' asking price was reportedly too high.

The D-backs recalled right-handers Stefan Crichton and Jon Duplantier from Triple-A Reno while optioning outfielder Tim Locastro to Reno. Crichton, 27, has a 3.24 ERA in 13 relief appearances for Arizona this season.

Duplantier, 25, has pitched in eight games (three starts) with the D-backs this year, producing a 1-1 record, one save and a 4.32 ERA in 25 innings. Locastro, 27, was hitting .252 with 11 stolen bases and 16 hit-by-pitches in 68 games for Arizona.
