JJ placed on 15-day disabled list

MIAMI — Josh Johnson, whose velocity dipped to 91 mph in his last start, has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with right shoulder inflammation.

The Marlins announced their roster move on Saturday. The team selected the contract of right-hander Jay Buente from Triple-A New Orleans.

To make space on their 40-man roster, infielder Donnie Murphy was transferred to the 60-day disabled list.

Johnson, who is 3-1 with a 1.64 ERA, is on the DL retroactive to May 17. In his last start, he worked five innings against the Mets, giving up one run in a no-decision.

For the season, Johnson has made nine starts and he’s struck out 56 in 60 1/3 innings.

Johnson was scheduled to start on Sunday in the series finale with the Rays.
