I'm surprised no one has posted this... but here it is

CINCINNATI -- The Reds placed starting pitcher Eric Milton on the 15-day disabled list with a sprained left elbow on Wednesday.

Reliever Jared Burton was recalled from his injury rehabilitation assignment and was reinstated from the 15-day DL. Burton had been out since April 8 with a strained left hamstring.

Milton gave up four earned runs and seven hits over 5 1/3 innings in Tuesday's 7-6 loss to the Astros.

"He just went in after the game and complained about it a little bit," Reds general manager Wayne Krivsky said. "As a precaution, we had the MRI at Dr. Kremchek's."

Milton is 0-4 with a 5.17 ERA in six starts this season. The team did not announce a replacement starter for Sunday's game at Los Angeles, but Krivsky said he was considering pitchers on the current staff or looking to Triple-A Louisville. While lefties Phil Dumatrait and Bobby Livingston are performing well at Louisville and are on the 40-man roster, this could be an opening to promote top pitching prospect Homer Bailey.
