DETROIT (AP) Texas Rangers right-hander A.J. Griffin has been put on the 15-day disabled list after leaving his start Saturday with stiffness in his throwing shoulder.

Griffin is expected to be examined Monday. He left Saturday's game at Detroit in the third inning.

Texas recalled reliever Alex Claudio from Triple-A Round Rock. Claudio was optioned to Round Rock on Saturday but never left the Detroit area because of Griffin's injury that afternoon.

Griffin is 3-0 with a 2.94 ERA in six starts this season.
