RHP Edinson Volquez today went on the 15-day disabled list with tendinitis in his right elbow. He left last night’s game at St. Louis after the first inning with numbness in the pinky and ring fingers of his right hand. He was examined in Cincinnati today by Reds medical director Dr. Timothy Kremchek. Prior to last night’s game, Volquez was reinstated from the DL (back spasms) and made his first start since May 16. Volquez will be examined again in 7-10 days. He will not throw during that time. The Reds are expected to recall RHP Jared Burton from Class AAA Louisville. Burton was optioned to Louisville yesterday, when Volquez came off the DL.
