Braves put RHP Martinez on DL; Ayala joins team

WASHINGTON (AP) - Atlanta Braves right-hander reliever Cristhian Martinez was put on the 15-day disabled list Friday because of a strained right shoulder, making room on the roster for recently acquired right-hander Luis Ayala.

Ayala joined the Braves in Washington ahead of Friday night's game against the Nationals. Atlanta received the reliever in a trade that sent minor league left-hander Chris Jones to the Baltimore Orioles on Wednesday.

Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said Martinez's shoulder bothered him while warming up in the bullpen during Atlanta's 8-0 victory at the Miami Marlins on Wednesday.

Gonzalez said the team flew Martinez to Atlanta to be examined by a team doctor "and we've just got to shut him down for a little bit."
