TUCSON, Ariz. -- The Arizona Diamondbacks placed left- handed reliever Terry Mulholland on the 15-day disabled list on Wednesday and brought up right-hander Casey Daigle from Triple-A Tucson.

The move leaves the Diamondbacks with no lefties on their pitching staff.

Mulholland has inflammation in his left elbow. The 43-year-old hurler had appeared in four of Arizona's first seven games, allowing two runs on six hits in six innings. He gave up a run in 1 2/3 innings in Tuesday night's 6-5 loss to Colorado in the Diamondbacks' home opener.

Daigle, whose minor league contract was purchased by Arizona to make the move, began the 2004 season as part of the Diamondbacks' rotation but struggled to a 2-3 record and a 7.16 ERA before being sent to Tucson.

Last year, he converted to a closer and was 9-3 with 19 saves and a 2.67 ERA for Double-A Tennessee. Daigle is married to U.S. softball star Jennie Finch.
