Re: Juan Francisco recalled, Mike Leake to disabled list with fatigued right shoulder

It could actually be any player from on or off the 40-man roster could fill the two 60-day DL spots, provided they were in the organization as of Aug. 31 and play the same position as the injured player (i.e. either pitcher or position player).
EDIT: I meant, of course, if they're added to the 40-man roster before that time. They would have to be on the roster by then to be eligible, as they wouldn't be under Major League contract.
