The Arizona Diamondbacks announced Wednesday top pitching prospect Jon Duplantier was headed to the 10-day injured list with right shoulder inflammation.
In a corresponding move, the team recalled right-hander Stefan Crichton.
Duplantier went only three innings in a 7-4 loss to the Phillies on Tuesday, allowing four earned runs on seven hits, a walk and a strikeout. His ERA on the season went from 3.27 to 4.32 in the outing, his eighth appearance in MLB for 2019.
It was only Duplantier’s third big league start as the 24-year-old right-hander made his major league debut this season. His first five outings were in relief, a stretch in which he went 12 innings and allowed only three runs for a 2.25 ERA.
